Thanks for sharing. I have not tried the software, but have some comments on the guide based only on a cursory look:
1. There are four pictures showing potential display issues. The 4th one is mislabeled - it should be "Bad RGB Balance", not "Bad Gamma" (which is the 2nd picture).
2. "SET BLACK AND WHITE LEVELS".
- For the first option (using Direct HDMI and CalImages), I find the description confusing. It refers to setting to the TV Legal Range of 16-235, but I suspect it should instead refer to the full PC (or Data) Range of 0-255. The subsequent statement "meaning there will be no 'below black' or 'above white' bars as used from Disc sources" would be valid only for 0-255.
- For the second option (using Calibration Disc). As long as you are achieving the desired target luminance, there is no need or benefit in pushing the Contrast all the way up to make the 236 and above disappear. To high a contrast can cause other issues such as discoloration or colour clipping.
3. "SET PEAK WHITE". The illustration is not showing.
4. "SET GREY SCALE BALANCE". The two "rules of thumb" cannot be "combined". If (1) Green is not to be touched, and (2) RGB values should never be increased, then it would be impossible to correct for an excessive of Green, which is a very common problem with projector lamps.
"THE TOOLBOX, Patch Generator". "Form most calibration work" should be "For most calibration work"
"THE TOOLBOX, Calibration Test Patterns". "... enables the calibration disc to be automatically play ..." should be "... enables the calibration disc to automatically play ..."
"as closing LightSpace DPS will loose (lose
) any and all profile data collected"
a second or even third Quick profile can
If I have time I will try out the free Lightspace DPS and check it against the guide.
[EDIT: The program does not seem to work with the retail version of i1D3, which is what I have].
