I'm performing 3D-Cube Calibrations for one month already using my LightSpace CMS Calibration Disk, The software has a mode that is used mainly at post-production applications that you can select the time that each pattern is displayed, this is called DIP mode in LightSpace.
So after tons of work, i have create a disk that is sync perfect with LightSpace Software with a very simple way as you have only to click 'ok' with your mouse at LightSpace window to start the measurements the same time while at your TV screen you see a the countdown's last frame.
There's 10-Point Cube (1000 Colors) Chapters inside the disk and 17-Point Cube (4913 Colors) Chapters also, with time per color selection of 3sec (For Klein Meters) 4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12...........
To find out which time chapter is for your display there is a Time Finder Chapter that displays the darkest colors of the selected LUT resolution and LightSpace tells you what reading was the longest, so it's very easy to decide .....
For iD3 from my test using Pioneer KURO with the deepest black as Dark readings takes longer time, the correct time for me was 6 sec per color. That means 1000 color for 1 hour 40 minutes and 4913 colors for 8 hours and 11 minutes by iD3, if you have Klein then you will need 4 Hours for 4913 Colors (using 3 sec, Chapter).
Of cource if you use LightSpace Internal Pattern Generator these times are shorter.
More details about that disk will be avaialble very soon.
This is an example of measuring the Final LUT loaded to my eecolor after performing a 17-Point Cube Calibration using my Disk.
BTW the difference im experiencing after 4913 color calibration is something it's not visible at the above charts, since the charts are from another software company and they measure only 30 colors and 21-Step Grayscale.
Using CalMAN for measuring the final LUT I had the same dE after measuring a 5-Point Cube (125 Colors), 10-Point Cube (1000 Colors) or 17-Point Cube (4913 Colors) so measuring with CalMAN or ChromaPure the final results CAN'T show you the difference.
As i have write to previous posts, professional industry software like LightSpace, THX CineCube and TrueLight, they don't have any dE report, they calculate the corretion LUT preventing problems that can appear by extreme corrections, they fix what it can be fixed without producing new problems to the image, so there is no need to check the dE of 4913 colors after the profilling......
I have perform 8x 10-Point Cube + 6x 17Point Cube Calibrations so far using my disk with different display settings and always the final results are the same using CalMAN Charts.Edited by ConnecTEDDD - 1/16/13 at 11:22am
