So I am leaving it all as per tempests original settingsThere are nothing wrong with the settings on my screen, and I can't imagine the r-offset being a problem for anyone at 1 point above its default.
I think it should think that if anyone wants to bump on black tone to its lowest setting and d/contrast to its lowest setting, it should be up to personal preference
I just did that some of today recently, and it 'enhances' the picture without any drawbacks it seems......
BUT the only thing is that I honestly don't think it really needs it. "as the director intended" philosophy, combined with Tempests awesome settings, means the picture looks great.
But I always put a disclaimer to that - you are well within your rights, and in some ways you would just be enhancing a near perfect picture. So whats the point, but it does look good too.
Before I ramble, I would say, "either way is ok"
And to answer your question succinctly, yes I have finished, and I arrived at Tempests Original settings that I melded with the Custom Color I found on HDTV, as listed on this page above
Picture Mode Movie
Black Tone Dark Off
Dynamic Contrast Low Off
Color Space (*from Tempest*; for my tv I used the *HDTV one* from facebook which is at the end here, it gives me the best Kelvin, your milage may vary)
Red R51 G0 B2
Green R5 G57 B0
Blue R0 G1 B64
Yellow R53 G55 B0
Cyan R0 G56 B58
Magenta R52 G0 B57
White Balance (coarse grain)
10p White Balance (I use his 10pt white system for my tv. It actually enhanced the picture for once!!! Truly wonderful! bearing in mind, its calibrated for HIS tv! amazing!)
1 R0 G0 B0
2 R0 G0 B0
3 R-1 G0 B-1
4 R-1 G0 B0
5 R-1 G0 B1
6 R-2 G0 B1
7 R1 G0 B0

Tempests color (I chose to use this HDTV's, it gives better kelvin for my tv. your milage may vary)
red 50 0 0
green 3 56 2
blue 0 4 92
yellow 56 48 1
cyan 0 52 54
Magenta 40 4 59
NOTE: People are allowed to switch on black tone
to dark (lowest) and d-contrast to Low. This helps the picture out a bit, yet honestly, for my tv at least, these settings are SO acurate, I do not think they really need activating, but its true, with them on, the picture retains its awesome integrity and "directors intention" feel....but remember, it has the potential to introduce un-original or unintentional parts of the picture
. This was the case in the Planet Earth documentary shallow seas. A black portion of the clouds shadow was obviously 'enhanced'...and the worst thing about this was, having intimate knowledge of the picture, it was a cloud-shadow on water that 'without black tone' still looked black enough to pass as a perfectly rendered representation of the cloud-shadow. So I advise it off, but certainly the picture is enhanced...its not that it did a bad job of enhancing the cloud-shadow on the water....it was that the Black Tone had digitally enhanced the spot, so it was just even blacker than it should be! And it was obvious, because I knew it was because of black tone....BUT was it out of place? maybe not. each to his own. I am merely pointing out that it will add non-usual things to the image. But it can look great, of course. --->and its usually the source material, as this is not a proper blue ray.
NOTE: d contrast. D contrast set to low on the other hand does a GREAT JOB *usually always*
of bumping up the contrast without altering the original picture too much. In some ways, I believe its a must-have improvement. Its making the colors more vibrant, without altering them in the slightest. Is it required, though on pain of death-of-image-quality? No. The unadulterated picture is just fine.
And if its SD content you are viewing, I think you should turn on black tone and d contrast to help out.
NOTE: If you get judder or anything, turn on Motion Plus custom blur 10 judder 3
And thats it, I have def finished fiddling now. The picture is great and how it should be
