HCFR - Open source projector and display calibration software - Page 20

post #571 of 3446
Hi,

very nice work indeed, I have installed the driver for the colormunki and it works without problem.

I have only one question, I don't use a colormunki "photo", but a colormunki "design" :

http://www.colormunki.com/product/sh...gner_type=true

Normally, it's the same meter and only the software sold by X-rite is different between those meters .

I have a problem with an option in "paramétres du Argyll Meter" on this point :

"Use Hi-Res Mode (i1pro and colormunki photo only)"

In your opinion, can I select that option with the colormunki Design ? (because normally it's the same as colormunki Photo).

The Design is a colorimeter, the Photo is a spectro. It looks like Hi-Res mode is intended for spectro's only.

If it's ungreyed then it shoudl work, looks like that design is a spectto and so it should work.

Hi,

sorry, but "this" design is a spectrophotometer too :



as the photo.

Hi

thank you.

Was able to get hold of an i1pro 2 for testing, works fine with ArgyllCMS and version 3.0.0.0 HCFR but of course is missing the new modes like "accelerated readings". I did a quick comparison with my 6 yr old i1pro and deltaE differences are not too bad although luminance has dropped by 8%. I'll post some measurements later.

I've been using an i1D3 on my Panny Plasma...

I noticed most of my previous calibration (chc) files won't load into HCFR 3.0.4.0. Out of three files from 3.0.1.0, one file from 3.0.2.0, and one file from 3.0.3.0, only one of the files from 3.0.1.0 will load. All the others give me an "Unexpected File Format" error. Doesn't matter to me but just wanted to bring it up.

On my final CIE Diagrams, the Gray settings are all extremely close to the D65 point, except Gray 0 IRW... i.e. "Distance from reference in CIExy: 0.106 xy" which as far as I recall has always been off this way. Not sure what to make of it.

That's interesting. I have 2 i1Pro meters, one I purchased new, and one I purchased used from a friend. The average xy difference between the 2 is about .00015 for 20%-100% white, and .0009 for primaries/secondaries, probably within the repeatability spec of each meter. However, there is a 7-8% luminance difference between the two.

Attached is a quick set of measurements I ran on my plasma.

Hi jdbimmer, long time no see. That is interesting, coincidence? I posted a measurement here.

65Cobra427SC,
I had a similar problem a month back, but it turned out that Windows had locked the .chc file type to point to the old ColorHCFR v2.x executable and it was difficult to get corrected. You can check if that happens to be your problem by first loading HCFR (3.0.4.0) and then using "File" "Open" to see if it will open your files from 3.0.x. If it does, it's the file type association that has somehow gotten set to point to the old executable.

In my case, all of the normal ways in Windows to change the file type assoc. (Control Panel, Win Expl. menus) would not actually keep the change to the 3.0.x executable. I had to uninstall ColorHCFR 2.x and 3.0.x AND go in and clean out the registry so that there was no file association for .chc. Hope this helps.

Yes, it's been a while . I think we purchased the i1Pro around the same time. The used one I purchased reads higher, and I think it's newer - seems like the i1P2 reads lower in your case. In any case, it doesn't make much difference when calibrating.

The new one reads higher so the old one has lost some throughput but the wavelength accuracy is still good so color points are ok.

Thanks but I had already tried that... the files just don't want to load. If it wasn't for the one file that does work, I would have thought the files from the older version were just incompatible witht he current release, but that's obviously not the case. Didn't really need the files for anything other than comparison purposes so not a huge loss. Thanks.

Oh, I misunderstood, so the direction is the same as mine. It could be throughput, but I never noticed my target peak white changing much on my older plasma. Maybe something changed within the same revision?
post #586 of 3446
JohnAd,

Not sure if this helps with the i1Pro error, but I downloaded the 3.0.4 source and ran it through the debugger in VS2008 with an i1Pro(Argyll driver) attached. It finds the i1Pro without any issues when running from debugger.

Attached is the log.

But your changes were different, mostly green and mine were mostly red 10%, then green 5%, then blue 3%. I think it's losing throughput with age. If they had changed the calibration at some revision level that would mean there was an original 8% luminance error in our meters and that is less likely.

Good point. Do you think the cleaning included in X-Rite's re-certification might correct it or is it a sensor degradation issue?

Back on thread topic: I compiled 3.0.4 and ran some measures in hi-res mode and found the spectrum graph displays the data points correctly. I'm not sure why my compiled version is working with the i1Pro - it may be that John may already included the fix in the files I downloaded today.

cleaning probably won't help but the recert will load new calibration constants in the eeprom which will correct for the change.

Wow, well I called that one wrong,, so clearly not that much is different with the new meter if they are keeping the same USB id....

I think the fix was ignoring an unintialized variable which debug mode probably masks.

It also worked when I subsequently built it as a Release, then copied the files to my laptop to test. I used Git to clone the master; I'll try the zip source and see if it works with that.

Oh right, the current git source has a fix in it, but doesn't currently work for mutiple meters, I should get that sorted out in the next couple of days.

Sorry I didn't get a release out this weekend, there should be a minor release at least in a few days (i1pro nailed hopefully + fixes from the beta code posted above) and a another one in one in a week or 2 (ccmx & ccss creation and use).

That makes sense then - When I did try the i1Pro with another meter connected, only 1 of them was listed. But alone it seems to work well.

Actually, for a recert (both directly with X-Rite or SpectraCal), they simply check to see if it's in spec, if it is you get a new Certificate. I believe SpectraCal will refund the re-certification fee if the i1Pro fails, there is no option to correct. With X-Rite, they will quote you the fee to correct or repair (then gets sent to Switzerland if you agree to do so)..

Note, I have yet to hear that any Rev D i1Pro has failed a recert (even older Rev's), not including damaged units.. I have been tracking this for some time with Professionals..
post #597 of 3446
Indeed and let's not forget the Rev.D was released within less than a year of the Rev.B (for materials compliance reasons) so even though it is slightly faster on reads it is no more accurate than the Rev.B (I was told this directly from X-rite). They also told me (when I asked) the cost of recalibration was likely to be just as much or higher than finding another used unit (they did not quote exactly how much it would be). As noted above by turbe everyone that I have spoken with, e-mailed or read information from says they have yet to see any Rev.B or newer be out of spec when tested (other than units that were simply broken internally, in which case they would not pass the i1Diagnostic).

Great to hear of the progress on the i1Pro, can't wait for the working version (with both meters).

As always much appreciation to John and the others involved for all their hard work on reviving this great tool.

That's what I was referring to, I was quoted $205 for recertification + shipping to Switzerland.

version 3.0.4.0 HCFR, when I open a new file, select DVD manual, "select a sensor in the list" has no Eye one anymore, I am checking this out before I purchase i1 display 3, will it works?

The new meter code only displays meters in the list that are detected or have legacy but free support. So it's to be expected that it's not in the list and it should work when it's plugged in
