i need software that support lumagen lut and projectors... damn calman!..
Lumagen is easy to use with LightSpace, see there a guide
. If you ask Lumagen, they always recommend LightSpace as the best choice:

LightSpace has complete instructions/documentation; up-to-date to cover the latest public release of the software here
, any feature/setting is explained well.
You can download the free LightSpace DPS and check it out these areas:
1) File -> Upload: Select your active external pattern generator and change it's settings.
External pattern generators are not supported by the free LightSpace DPS license, but you can use LightSpace Connect (trial, with limitation of patch generation, for grayscale calibration it will be fine) with FireStick for example, which is bit-perfect in RGB-Video (16-235) output.
The accuracy results have been posted there
. (while is not bit-perfect with CalMAN and MobileForge as you can see)
For PGenerator/Rasberry Pi users, it can be used fully with LightSpace DPS (without LightSpace Connect) for bit perfect RGB-Video (16-235) or RGB-Full (0-255) or RGB-Video Expanded (16-255) patch generation. Adding an HDR10 metadata injection device to the output of PGenerator, you can have a bit-perfect HDR10 RGB-Video pattern generation.
You can configure PGenerator @ Network Manager window:
2) Tools -> Discovaeable Probe: untick the virtual meter and tick your active meter.
3) Tools -> Calibration -> Calibration Interface -> Options: Set your meter settings, create meter correction tables, set patch scale for pattern generator if required (For PGenerator for example, set patch scale min 16 and max 235, to get bit-perfect RGB-Video pattern generation)
All settings there are not available for all meters, when you connect a meter, some of the settings are disabled, it has to do with the connect meter features.
To see what settings are adjustable per each meter and what each setting is doing, you can select your hardware from there
, and you will see explained each setting.
For i1Display PRO users with OLED for example, a quick setting recommendation is to use:
AIO Meter Sync Mode: The latest generation of i1Display PRO (Rev.B) (OEM/Retail) it features a new refresh rate detection and synchronization AIO (All in One) measurement mode which can improve the measurement stability for certain displays and provide lower reading times. For people familiar with CalMAN the X-Rite's AIO mode of i1Display PRO Rev.B meters is not available from CalMAN, since CalMAN is not using X-Rite SDK to operate the instruments.
0.75sec integration time: meter exposure period of time.
Extra delay 0.5 sec: delay of software with pattern displayed before each meter read.
Intelligent Integrator 1: When one measurement is below 1 nits, the i1Display PRO will perform a second, third, fourth, etc. reading, with increasing integration times, up to the maximum integration time of 6 seconds. The readings will stop as soon as a stable and valid reading is achieved. If no valid and stable reading is achieved a 'zero' value will be returned, enabling LightSpace to intelligently calculate a replacement value when generating a calibration LUT.
Stabilization 0.75 sec: With OLED's there strange shiftings and weird luminance changes from thermal changes to the pixels of the pattern area so to help the panel cool down, the Patch Stabilisation Insertion feature works well.
The main idea is to add black frames displayed for x.xx sec. time between each other colorpatch (for example 750ms of black patch) but there capability to select any color (any RGB triplet). For OLED RGB Triplet 0.0.0 (Black) or 26.26.26 (10% Gray) will work fine.
For using 10% Gray as stabilization frame (instead of Black), to add that custom color, click at custom then tick the first custom color white box and enter 26.26.26, then click to add to custom colors and then select it and press OK.
4) Tools -> Calibration -> Calibration Interface: Take pre/post calibration measurements or manual measurements. (Quick Profile of primary only is enough to check before starting 3D LUT measurements.)
Quick Profile Window has some other measurements options also, for example:
Primary Only: 21-Point Grayscale + 20-Point of Luminance with 100% Saturation of Primary colors (RGB)
Primary & Secondary: 21-Point Grayscale + 20-Point of Luminance with 100% Saturation of Primary+Secondary colors (RGBCMY).
Gamut Sweep 100%: 21-Grayscale + 5-Point Saturation sweep with 100% Luminance.
Gamut Sweep 75%: 21-Grayscale + 5-Point Saturation sweep with 75% Luminance.
Memory Colors: Grayscale + ColorChecker Classic
Grayscale Large: 33-Point Grayscale.
5) Tools -> Calibration -> Display Characterization: Use it to take measurements for display profiling....17-point cube etc... (This is not working in Free DPS version of LightSpace.)
6) Tools -> ColorSpace -> ColorSpace Manager: There are saved all your measurements. (LightSpace DPS don't save measurements).
7) Tools -> ColorSpace - Convert ColorSpace: Here you perform the 3D LUT correction generation. (It's not working with DPS). You select @ Source your target Colorspace (for example REC.709) and at Destination you select your cube measurement file (one 17-Point cube measurement file for example)...When you click to 'Create New', it's generating the correction in 2-5 seconds only. From one measurement run you can generate as many corrections you like, for example with different gamma values or other colorspace etc.
8) Upload the 3D LUT: After the correction is created you only upload it to your 3D LUT hardware (using File - Upload for Lumagen/madVR) or export it to a file (for eeColor), or export LG format for 2018 OLED's etc.).
New LightSpace users will also get a free upgrade to ColourSpace, when its been released, and no LightIllusion software has annual fees for updates, until the end of life of each product.
LG 2018 1D/3D LUT upload tutorial/instructions will be posted this week.
