The Official ChromaPure 3 thread
 
ChromaPure 3 will be released (finally!) in the next few days. In advance of the official release, I want to begin posting some demos that provide some indication about the look and feature set of the new product.

Upgrade cost is $79.

For anyone purchased a license during the last year (I'll have to lookup the exact cutoff date), the upgrade is free.

All of the features you licensed in v 2 will be available in v. 3.

How do i pay you the $79.00?

I dont think my upgraging too autocal this past year qualifies me for the free upgrade.

Ive been with you since the program went beta and still prefer it too SpectraCals.

mo949 12-15-2015 02:27 PM

For any newbies, is there an AVS price for this?

The free upgrade is for people who purchased the main program within the last year. I'll post the upgrade offer on our web site when we are ready to formally release. It will be a few days yet.

Outstanding, Tom. I'm really looking forward to using v3.x

Sammie2980 12-16-2015 07:33 PM

Very excited to get a hold of this.

Very nice looking GUI. Any new features or just the GUI update?

Both. The bulk of our work has been on the new platform, which establishes a basis for adding new features in subsequent point upgrades, which will be available for free to v3 users. However, this release also has several new features. One point first, though. Sometimes, it is difficult to distinguish a feature enhancement from a UI enhancement. For example, is the ability to measure Gamut, Saturations, and ColorChecker with one mouse click a UI enhancement or a new feature? You are doing the same things you could do in v2, but you can do them so much easier and faster it feels like a new feature to me. Anyway. . .

ChromaPure 3 What's New
  • New streamlined and efficient user interface
  • Enhanced user-configurable reporting
  • User-defined automated measurements
  • Multiple gamma runs on one chart for comparison
  • 12/21 pt selectable Lumagen LUT auto-calibrate
  • dE method selectable by module
  • System-wide gamma, select once and apply everywhere

Hi Tom,

I've calibrated my Marantz VP-15S home theater projector a few years ago using older CalMAN 3.7 software that is not compatible with Windows 10. My i1 Display 2 isn't either as there isn't driver support so I've ordered the i1 Display Pro that just arrive today.

I recently purchased a Samsung UHD LED tv that has 11-point color correction. As I am retired & only will use this program on my own monitors, ChromaPure 3's demo looks very user friendly for a novice like me but I can't find pricing anywhere at the website. Has it been released? Also, is it downloadable?

Thanks, George

ChromaPure 3 will be released in a few days. You can buy ChromaPure 2.5.8 now and get a free upgrade when CP3 is available.

I just purchase ChromaPure. The software displays ver 002. So this is current till the new is available?
I've a couple of questions -
I don't find instructions on the disk, at least when I run it in the Blu Ray player attached to the TV. Are they on the disk?
And
Looking at the data side of the disk there is an obvious gap as if there are 2 separate tracks recorded. What's up with that?

002 just refers to the disc version. It has nothing to do with ChromaPure software.
There are instructions for the basic calibration patterns. Display a pattern (e.g., Brightness) and then push the Pop-up Menu button on your Blu-ray's remote.
No. I don't know what you are referring to.

Charles Tintera 12-18-2015 05:14 AM

Found a manual on the Web site. Thanks

Wouter73 12-19-2015 12:26 PM

No, no limit. Upgrade when you can.

H Stevens 12-20-2015 05:07 AM

Will Chromapure 3 offer display control?

vinodk 12-20-2015 04:20 PM

What about the upgrade cost for people who have bought meter/software license second hand?

Original point of sale is what is used to determine upgrade status.
