I'm not able to see the '12 bit' option it only goes upto '10 bit' in the dither settings. I have my M3D connected via a HDMI splitter (V1.3 and it has passed 36 bit deepcolour from a previous VP). I wonder if the M3D is reading the EDID from the TV that is also connected (but turned off)? Either that or I'm in the wrong menu perhaps.
In any case the picture looks fantastic after a second calibration last night: I used high lamp mode in my HD350 which has much more red, so I even had to reduce the red gain a little to get 100 IRE spot on before using the M3D controls for the CMS/greyscale. It's a new lamp so I know it'll drift a lot over the next few weeks, but it was so quick to set this up compared to previous calibrations as I did the lot in under 90 minutes compared to 4-5 hours in the past and the results are just about 'perfect' in dE terms (and looking at the image too, which I occasionally do in between calibrating
The 'HD350 plus Mini3D' file 'before' is with only the 100 IRE adjusted using the HD350's gain controls, so you can see the full oversaturated gamut of the HD350. The 'after' is using the Mini3D's CMS and greyscale controls.
The 'HD350 high lamp' 'before' used the low power Mini3D settings, but I'd adjusted the 100 IRE using the HD350's controls. The 'after' is the final adjusted setting using the Mini3D. Once the 100 IRE was adjusted, the low power CMS controls were pretty close for the gamut and only required a small amount of adjustment to achieve the final result. The greyscale required more work due to the extra red throughout the 90 down to 10 IRE range.
It would be nice if the gamut controls allowed you to use the up and down buttons to change the 'add G' (or whatever) setting like the greyscale controls do. I find punching in a value each time is a bit slower, especially if you overshoot.
