I have all enhancements turned off except for those where it's not an option to turn off.
With W/B based on your information, if I'm checking 80%iRE with HCFR and red is less than 100% should adjust W/B high R to get as close to 100%, and similarly for the blue? I will recheck tonight and see what I can dial in. Would it be inappropriate to post graphs for suggestions or comments on what I might do to further correct the calibration?
Thanks again...Your comments are greatly appreciated.
I had limited success with the apl patterns on both my Panasonic and my Pioneer. Small windows, 4%, worked best for me. When adjusting the RGB, since you do not have any adjustment for green, move the red and blue to line up with the green line, both for rgb and for the gamma. Starting with the 80% and 20% gray points is just that. Look over the whole spectrum and find where the best fit will be as you only have 2 point w/b controls from what you have posted.
In the end, what is important more than anything is that the picture is pleasing to you in your viewing environment. I've calibrated a few sets that had great graphs and numbers, but less than optimal picture. Sometimes small changes can make a very big difference. Don't be afraid to experiment. If you are so inclined keep a log of changes you made, and the effects they had in HCFR, and what you see on the set. Its a learning process, and to me it seems you never stop learning.
most definitely post your graphs, and the raw data, it makes it a lot easier to see what you are seeing. each graph can be saved as a graphic file by right clicking on the graph, then save as. you can then attach it as a photo in your post.
