Newbie here, both to the forums and to DIY calibration
I'm slowly making my way through this thread going backwards... doubt I'll have the time (and patience!) to read through all 5k posts, though.
Thought I'd give a few details about my setup and intentions, maybe someone will be kind enough to offer some pointers?
Many thanks in advance!
- Desktop PC (W10 1903) with 1080ti (drivers 430.53) connected to a FZ800 OLED (it's Panasonic's 2018 series), i1D3 meter (retail version, bought new the other day)
- MPC-BE + madVR: GPU is configured with RGB full (12bit), madVR full (10bit), TV full levels (4K PureDirect on)
I'm looking to generate 3D LUTs with DisplayCAL for both SDR and HDR (passthrough mode, not converting to SDR - but ideally it would be good if madVR tonemapped everything above 750nits).
Trouble is DisplayCAL has a lot of options available under "3D LUT" and I don't know whether I should go with its default madVR presets or if I should be adjusting them in any way?
There is one other thing to consider:
Panasonic have implemented Dynamic LUTs which makes standard clipping pluge patterns unusable - first 3 levels of black and last 3 levels of white are clipped on patterns. Major gamma adjustments for low/high IREs would be needed to avoid clipping with the patterns and this will mess up the rendering of regular content.
It's possible LG and/or Sony OLEDs do something similar, but I'm not familiar with their TVs.
Now... I don't really know if this feature of the FZ will have a negative impact on DisplayCALs readings for the 3D LUTs and, if yes, how might I work around it?
