, so you would have to tell me which preset/color temp/gamma preset you'd like me to select (I assume with a color setting back to 0). I can't remember the original settings for these...
Yes, just put color back to 0, turn CMS off, and use the default 2.2 gamma without any tweaks. You can keep your tweaked grayscale settings for any gain/offset changes you made, and in fact I'd prefer it.
I did calibrate using the 100% windows, and I would be tempted to experiment with 75% to see if the saturation is tracking better, unfortunately I don't know how to tell HCFR I'm using 75% patterns, and I don't see how it can display the gamut adjusted to 75% if it doesn't know (I need the CIE diagram to get close enough and then I fine-tune looking at the coordinates, but I'm not going to try to calibrate this thing looking at numbers only!). Is it diferent in Calman? What are you using?
I use HCFR. You do not need to tell HCFR what % you are using. Just redo your Measure Primaries and Secondaries command, and be sure to use the 75% patterns for RGB and White. All the Y data and dE is based off the white reading, so as long as you give it a 75% white pattern when asked to measure white that's all you need to do (along with using 75% for RGBCYM).
Regarding oversaturated primaries, I don't have a problem with this within reason (ie not in the OOTB state!), and am less sensitive to oversaturated green than reds. Please post your oversaturated gamut, so I can heve a look at what you find "acceptable" or even "preferable".
Are you experimenting with Jason's range (-15 / -22), which has been suggested by a few other users as well? I'd like to see some data from this color range before I embark on my 5th attempt when I reach 100 hours...
My preferred gamut is attached. Note that all points chosen are intentional. This is a personal preference toward oversaturated colors which purists will not care for, but ultimately I find it more interesting so I go by what I like vs. what is technically correct in these cases.
Note that I did not use THX mode because the lack of grayscale tweaks and gamma was a show stopper. I did use it briefly to compare colors to my gamut and it was about as I expected. I used 75% patterns. I used a Color setting of -17. The Y values were pretty much spot on when I was done but I didn't have a chance to really refine it as I would have liked to. Also I would have liked to check the saturation levels as has been discussed lately but did not have a chance. This may have called for a little more careful rebalancing.
I barely had a chance to evaluate this after completing it. But I was pleased with what I saw in the little time I did have to check it out. Skin tones looked nice and noticeably better than the RS1. Color control was at -17. But again I really need a lot more time with it to re-evaluate in the face of all the new data.
