Thanks for the patterns, they've been useful. Is there any chance that you could add a few more for a full grayscale and color calibration? Alternately, could someone maybe give me some idea how I could go about creating correct YCbCr patterns on my own?
As an amateur using HCFR, one major issue is getting a good calibration disk. GetGray is nice for SD, but for HD there's not many choices that I'm aware of besides DVE HD and the few patterns on Sony Blu-rays. Neither of those interfaces well with single spot measurements so I'd like to create a disk that would be easier to use. Your patterns easily seem the best start.
#1 - 75% gray window - In order to make color decoder changes, it would be nice to have a 75% gray to go with the 75% color patterns already on the site.
#2 - 100% color windows (709) - To measure primaries and secondaries, I think 100% color patterns are intended to be used. I can't adjust my primaries so this actually isn't anything I necessarily need myself, but for a full grayscale and color calibration it would be useful.
#3 - Above white window - I'm almost sure that my TV is red limited and always shows above-white. I figure that might be somewhat common for digital displays, so it would be nice to have an above-white pattern to go with the gray patterns for setting grayscale. The shade from the above-white bar in the bars and ramp pattern would probably work.
#4 - Flashing color decoder bar pattern (709) - For Color decoder settings, it would be nice to have a flashing pattern like the color bars pattern you added. A basic idea would be to have red, green, and blue each as a solid bar. Then on top of the bars have gray and the two related secondary colors flash on and off. There are a lot of options for how to do this, but I included a couple pictures for 1/3 of the screen.
Here is a preliminary HD DVD disk of the current grayscale and color relevant patterns. This was merely created for my own use with MovieFactory. The menu RGB images appear to be incorrect, so don't take any measurements from the menu. The only things this might currently be good for is 0% to 100% grayscale windows, and to set color and tint from the flashing bars pattern. Of course if dr1394 has any objections to the file I'll gladly remove it. http://www.sendspace.com/file/9iwytp
