Always found that if I got Green in line from 100 to 10, then Blue, then Red, everything went quicker, and easier, but the Auto function seems to keep working with all 3, and doesn't seem as smooth a calibration.
1. Adjust 100% using the Display's own RGB grayscale controls.
2. Using the White Balance module, now adjust every other point using the Lumagen control within CP.Note:
I just found that the relevant variable is not top-to-bottom or bottom-to-top, but what control is used for 100%. The White Color control, which used to work wonderfully at 100%, no longer does. It can be used, but only if calibrating bottom-to-top, and even then you'll have to go back to 80 and 90% to readjust. On the other hand, using the 100% grayscale adjustment in the Lumagen works fine, does not have the interactive effects, and it doesn't matter whether you go top-to-bottom or bottom-to-top.
Finally, Lumagen recommends that you do NOT use the 100% grayscale control. I think because it can result in banding artifacts. This is why they recommend using the display's own control to adjust 100%. Once that is done the rest is a breeze.
FWIW, I am seeing none of these issues using the Duo. Of course, the Duo has other shortcomings, but for basic 10-pt grayscale, gamma, and 6-point gamut calibration it is hard to beat.
Final Note: Other than at 100%, where it may be necessary, you should not adjust green when doing grayscale. Stick to red and blue adjustments only. Green has too much of an effect on gamma.Edited by TomHuffman - 3/21/13 at 6:56pm
