Was it hard to learn? Do they have idiot proof walk through? I am worried to screw up every thing then where do I go! It also gets me to have to recall rate the projector every time!
If I can do it, anyone can. They have what they call workflows. What you do is start with the basic tutorial and it guides you throughout . Then you go too advance tutorial it does the same. It will be hands on while you do each step at a time so you will be changing settings on your projector / video processor.
(The beauty about Calman 5 it has an Autocal feature which for each step you press that and it does the majority of the work for you, all you do is tweak. Personally its good if you go without it and achieve you settings at first because its good to understand the manual way, bit more work on your part but once you got a good understanding of it ( its not that hard ) you will be very pleased with yourself.
Write up a little guide for yourself that you can understand so next time when doing another calibration you forget anything important. But once you have the hang of it you will be doing it more than once
Once you got the idea how it works ( I kid you not its very easy ) then you can start on the Ht Advance workflow. It's the same but without tutorial. It stills shows the targets to reach, very simple. The trick is though you have sometimes you have to go back and forth checking your results. Depends how perfect you want it, because its your own you can spend the time achieving that.
Plus if you do get stuck the guys on calman 5 thread will be able to help as my self (depending on time). They're actually quiet helpful.
Btw what projector/ video processor you have?
