Can do, yes. Do you need a switch or should I always enable it?

Should still be on for a first release with the new meter code this week.

John

Makes sense John, concentrate on the basics first. I'll be able to test next weekend for your first release if its ready.

I'd recommend a switch but how it operates will depend on how the 3.33 nm vs. 10 nm sampling is handled. If the 10 nm mode averages 3 x 3.33 nm samples (rather than just picking out every third sample) this would be the preferred mode for low IRE color measurements. If the 10 nm sampling mode just picks every third sample then I would get rid of it and create the two modes in software using only the driver's 3.33 nm sampling and then do the calculations with either 1 or 3 sample averaging.

I think in general the high resolution setting will be used most often, especially if you are profiling a secondary colorimeter. In cases where you do not have a colorimeter or the display spectral display is smoother (non-plasma) the low resolution mode would be preferable.

wow....that's great.

so should i pull the trigger on a colormunki display or an i1 display 3?

I tried compiling the mac code on my 10.7 macbook pro and there were quite a few deprecated functions without obvious work-arounds. I'm not a programmer but bringing this code up-to-date appears to be a big job.

It currently compiles cleanly in xcode 3.2, but yes upgrading it will be a lot of work.

What flavor of of the Display 3 will be supported by the next release of HCFR? I'm ready to purchase it, and I'd love to sign up as an alpha/beta tester.

Okay, it looks like I was mixing up information I saw on the CalMan and ChromaPure websites. If you're not buying a vendor customized one, it looks like there's one option:

Xrite EODIS3 i1Display Pro

Can you please verify that this will be the supported version? Also, will you verify that I can get on the tester list?

Thanks!

i would definitely love to test this if it has support for ColorMunki Display....

A switch for accessing both resolution modes for the i1 Pro would be very desirable -- and very much appreciated

As a switch/check box would be great. So we can see for ourselves what difference it makes.

Would an application restart or meter re-init required for this?

Supporting XCode 4 is a problematic, as there is no supported way of building for 10.5 in XCode 4. So, for the best compatibility, we are currently sticking with XCode 3, which allows us to build for and support 10.5, 10.6 and 10.7, at least for 32 bit builds. So XCode 4 doesn't buy us anything very worthwhile right now.

Building for 64 bit is going to be a fair bit of work due to deprecated interfaces, but is something I will attempt once we have the argyll driver working better.

I haven't got a Display 3 and so I can only go on the code and the ArgyllCms website.

see http://www.argyllcms.com/doc/instruments.html#i1d3

The supported meters should be:

i1 Display Pro
ColorMunki Display
The CalMan edition of the meter

Exactly how what drivers need to be installed and what needs to be stopped will need to be worked out once we have a releasable verison of the code.

Just keep following this post, I'll post links here as soon as there is anything ready.

I wired everything up for the first time yesterday and it's working pretty well. There are a few error handling and logging issues to resolve but that shouldn't take too long and then getting the driver package build properly ....

OK, I'll look at adding it, A meter re-init only should be required.

I have this exact meter, and can confirm it works in with Argyll and hence will be supported.

Good plan, thanks for the info on the mac version.

For sake of clarity, the CalMan edition of the meter means the i1Display3 OEM edition not the C6. According to the argyllcms list the C6 is apparently not supported at the moment.

John

I bought my OEM version from Tom with Chromapure and it works perfectly with argyll. So I propose dropping the reference to Calman and just say 'OEM' to cover both.

I'm very happy to see this project underway. I recently sent off my old LT to a friend and had a nightmare of a time creating offsets between Chromapure and HCFR.

Thanks. I just ordered this today. Should have it in hand tomorrow. I'm really looking forward to the code release.

just wondering why you bought the i1 display pro instead of the colomunki display?

from what's being said here, the colormunki display is a spectrometer and should be a better choice?

just curious.

thanks

The colormunki is not a spectrometer. It's essentially identical to the Display 3. The main difference is speed of measurements, especially dark readings. I have no idea just how much slower (I'm not putting too much faith in the 1 reviewer who said it took only 2x longer than the Display 3), so I figured I'd spring for the extra cash. Yes, I'm probably throwing money into the wind...

No not really... I find it confusing too. There are two products:

http://xritephoto.com/ph_product_overview.aspx?ID=1115

and

http://www.xrite.com/product_overview.aspx?ID=1513

which are very different (photo/design is spectro, display is not).

I doubt the ColorMunki Photo will compare with the Display3 in low light reading ability. For publishing work, where you need to calibrate your monitor and printer both, the ColorMunki Photo is a great product. For display calibration, I'm pretty sure the Display3 or ColorMunki Display will best it.

Thanks for that, you're probably right i1Display3 OEM is likely correct, I'm just worried about making unconfirmred claims of support.

Hi John, any update on a 'test ready' release?

I should be purchasing a colorimeter later this week. Thanks

There's a few signing wrinkles with the driver and a couple of bugs to sort out but nothing major, probably be ready Thursday/Friday.

That's great. Looking forward to it.

Can we still use the existing guide to perform calibration with the updated HCFR program? Or will there be a need for a new guide?

Anything related to setting up the meter will change but the rest of it should be fine.
