Here's what it looks like when you have to clamp it down to DCI
You can see since the color definitions are stored in CalMAN as XYZ, the colors stay in the same place although the ones that are out of gamut get clipped to the edge of the gamut.
That looks very comprehensive but unfortunately I don't think I'll be able to use it, since I still display patterns manually on my PS3/BD player via calibration discs and manually going through 100 patterns would be a nightmare.
Is there any way I can use my laptop as a pattern generator reliably or should I just stick to the 24-pt colorchecker?
Also, are tools like the saturation and luminance sweeps and the colorchecker useful for setting color/tint or are they only for those with a CMS and/or external video processor? My setup isn't centered around a HTPC, so I have no access to 3DLUTs.
