Nope sounds like you've done your best.
If the TV is undersaturated, like yours is, there is nothing you can do to increase the saturation.
Just completed first calibration using C3 meter with Calman 5 Tutorial Advanced. I only did a 2pt calibration because I couldn't understand the multi point instructions. Or maybe I couldn't adjust them on my TV. But despite that, only 50% and 90% were above 3. However I was able to fully adjust my color. Other than graph properties and advanced settings under the options, I am missing the fL reading. But my TV doesn't have a cell light option, it had a panel brightness option. Luckily my gamma was 2.2 so I think I did a decent job.
For the fL reading which Calman do I need to upgrade to?
OK so if one only owns a C3 meter, should the workflow settings be left at default? And is there a way to reset the settings without having to reinstall CalMAN?
Why is it that when I select BT.1886 the target level for gamma becomes 2.4 in the workflow? You know the yellow target line is around 2.4. Am I just supposed to ignore it and aim for 2.2?
And I've set black level to "use measured" just like the white level.
OK so if the target curve says 2.4 for instance. Your TV may be set to 2.2 gamma but the meter's reading find it too low, so you have to bump it up to meet the target curve?
So CalMAN tells you to make it 2.4 so that it will really look like 2.2 because your TV is incorrect?
If the TV only has a 2pt then you only adjust gamma if needed. If the TV has a 10pt, do you adjust the grays first or the gamma first?
Edit: Just read through Marvin's post. He said to adjust gamma first then tweak it with the grayscale.
I have multiple TVs in the house but I am starting out with Panasonic tc p50s60 calibration because that is my gaming TV (very low input lag).
When you say adjust gamma to get the closest fit, you mean making it meet the target line? Even if the target is not 2.2?
Last time I did a calibration on the same TV, with the default workflow settings, the gamma was 2.2 with dE of 0.7 I believe but the BT. 1886 formula was telling me to set gamma at 2.4. That is the only thing I am confused about.
