Worst case I'll be sure you have a "good color" version with the Quick Sequence. It was you who got me into this after all
Since the menus are all done and most of the work of hooking it all up, assigning buttons, determining looping behaviors, etc is complete, the next beta will have the Quick Sequence for sure. That'll give some testers and you some more feel for it so we can tweak and improve if need be.
I have a few navigation errors to clear and some spots to loop that I missed and Beta 4 is ready. I'm going to work on the lipsync pattern's audio track after Beta4.
One of the things Cliff Plavin does when doing calibrations and what I do as well usually is rock back and forth between a low and high IRE (sorry Bill, I mean percent stimulus
) pattern. For example a 30% and a 80%. As one rocks back and forth you can adjust the individual RGB gain and bias to flatten the grayscale at those points. No matter the colorimeter device, that might be helpful to get the settings in the ballpark, assuming there dosen't happen to be some odd spike at 30 or 80. Then start full grayscale runs.
So maybe a pair of "rocking" sequences:
30%-80% gray looping
20%-90% gray looping
These sequences would simply loop (via the next button) around and around until menu is selected. This woudl make bouncing back and forth a lot simpler.
Both under the "gray patterns" menu.
