I agree but my VP is a Duo so investment in a Lumagen would be an expensive exercise just to get 125 point calibration with no improvement in my visible PQ.
I value the cash in my pocket more than the the hourly rate I associate with my hobby.
Incidentally Tom, I can manually calibrate the individual colours using your 75% saturation Rec 709 patterns to accuracy within 45 mins if I use the new 'set profile to zero' option in my Duo. Obviously my Grayscale will already have been done before.
Tweaking (not zeroing the colours first) can be done very quickly, probably within 15 mins to half an hour.
I think you may be underestimating how good and easy to use your Chromapure software is now if you feel it needs hours to get results manually..
Even including time to get accurate Power Gamma at say 2.2 and grayscale adjustment on my LCD CCFL using the OEM D3 takes me less than 1 and half hours starting with a completely zeroed Duo admittedly using 'Duo Control panel' for speed of Duo operation.
Again thanks for the 75% patterns they have certainly been an excellent addition to CP.
