I started over a couple more times, and this was as flat as I could get the RGB levels with gamma. The blue seems a little off at 30, but if you adjust the Blue offset down to 51 it throws everything else out of whack.

I also don't know why I have to set it to 5500K to get it calibrated to 6500K, but it seems to work.

Here is a quick shot from my phone or my settings.


Here is the same using Orcus' settings.
Hmm, 55k, that's warm but I know that the menu here is more limited than the 6040. I'll give this a try this weekend when I have time to sit down. Thanks for sharing and doing a comparison with Orcus. Would the rest of the settings be the same as Orcus? So I can just load those and adjust it to yours?

5500K is just the setting on the projector, but actually measures a little above 6500K. I didn't post the graph of the color temp, but it tracks close to 6500K.

There are a couple differences from Orcus
Superwhite Off
Power Medium

I'll update my post with the full list of settings.

So you have got me interested in having a go at calibrating my own CMS. Up to now I have just been using others settings with just tweaking the two point grayscale.


What is your workflow?

This is my first time calibrating, so I am learning as I go. My numbers seem odd compared to some of the other settings, so I still trying to figure out if I should "trust the meter." The two settings that I had used the most were Orcus and Jbartelli. If I switch between mine, Orcus, and jbartelli, they look a little red, a little green, or a little blue, respectively. They measure that way on my meter. I am also using a Dark Energy Abyss ALR screen, with a .9 gain.

I am using the i1 Display Pro meter, and mainly follow viperlogics workflow in post 344 with a couple of changes.

I started with the grayscale sweep and color temp at 6500k, for me it had green at 100%, blue at 120%, and red at 80%.
I kept reducing the color temp until they were all close to 100%, which ended up being 5500K.
Once that is set, in HCFR, right click in the RGB levels window to see the results w/gamma. This will skew the line all over the place.
Then I adjusted Brightness and Contrast to straighten the line as much as possible, then used the gamma to fine tune.
Only after I got the line at flat as possible did I start adjusting colors.

Presumably you mean RGB Gain and Offset. In any case, they should not be adjusted using the “w/gamma” option.

The objectives of those adjustments are to balance R/G/B. The gamma is adjusted using the 10/20-point controls.

I didn't use the RGB Gain and Offset to adjust gamma. I just adjusted the gamma before adjusting the colors compared to viperlogic's tutorial which adjusted the colors before gamma. I just found that changes in gamma affected the colors more that changes in color affected gamma.

I think I did adjust the offset and gain w/gamma option enabled. What issues does that cause?

Looking at the charts I don't think it would have changed my settings. I attached both with and without gamma. Still a mess below 40, but tracks great above. I also threw in my color temp chart. It tracks right at 6500K.

My comment was directed at your statement

Quote:

Brightness control is used to set the black level. I do not know what you mean by using it to “straighen the line” when looking at the RGB graph with gamma.
Quote:

Offset and gain should be adjusted using only two of the three colours. When using “without gamma”, the adjustment will make all three colours read 100%, which simply means all three colours are equal. If you use the “w/gamma” option, in all likelihood you will have to change all three colours to make them all read 100%, which would result in some undesirable side effects.

I was just basing it off your original comment that said I needed to look at it w/gamma, and I would have seen my target luminescence was off. I didn't realize it would throw it off the color changing it with gamma.

By straightening the line on the RGB Levels, I mean that if you you match the luminance curve then the RGB line will be straight with or without gamma on. I was using the grayscale, watching the numbers, and the green line on the rgb levels while adjusting the gamma controls to get the green line at 100%.

If the luminance curve match the target curve 100% would the RGB Levels with and without gamma be the same?

Here is an example of what I mean. All the the other settings and built in setting have huge luminance errors that cause the same wave in the RGB Levels chart w/gamma.

These setting look pretty good and flat without gamma.


But if you look with gamma, you get a nice wave.


Looking at the luminance chart, you can see it is way off.

Which post are you referring to? I need to revisit it and see if the wording was misleading, as what you're doing is not what I was suggesting.

That is correct assuming you're adjusting the 10-point (gamma controls), but not for adjusting the gains and offsets (or Brightness, maybe Contrast).

Quote:

Yes. "RGB w/gamma" provides the same information presented in the "RGB w/o gamma" as well as the gamma curve (or luminance difference)

Here is an example of what I mean. All the the other settings and built in setting have huge luminance errors that cause the same wave in the RGB Levels chart w/gamma.

Quote:

Yes, that's why you need to look at "RGB w/gamma" when adjusting gamma, but not when you're adjusting gain and offset.

Here is what I was referring to. I took it to say I should be adjusting w/gamma so I could take the luminance errors into account.

You will see the luminance errors very clearly if you set the RGB graph option to “w/gamma” by right-clicking on it.
Since your black level is quite high, you should changed the reference black level.

I think we agree, I just wasn't stating it clearly. I am only using the gamma controls to adjust the luminance curve. I didn't realize there would be an issue adjusting the Gain and Offset w/gamma.

So I went back to check some settings last night because my settings seem very warm. I measured Natural default setting at 6500K, 6000K, and 5500K. I can post the graphs later, but 6500K was very cool with blue way above the green line, and red below. 6000K was better, but I still couldn't bring the red up to 100%. I also tested viperlogic's settings, since he posted his calibration files as well. His calibration file show everything calibrated correctly, but when I took the measurements, I got blue around 120% over green.

That means that either my screen runs cool, the patterns aren't working right with chormecast through the shield, or the meter is wrong. I tried some video calibration files played through my Oppo, and go the same results, so I don't think it is the generator. I also had some Elite gray screen material samples laying around. I tried those, and while they were better, they still present a little on the cool side. I don't really know how to test the meter. I can try it on another display, but I don't have anything else calibrated, so I don't know if that will help me out.

I did an SDR calibration, which I calibrated at 6000K. Again, everything on the calibration file looks great, but when I watch something skin tones look a little red. Sometime they look ok, but sometimes it looks like too much.

I'm seeing something similar using the Harpervision settings. I was watching Passengers and it had a great dynamic look. When it got to Jim, he would look fine for most scenes and then in other scenes, like the bar, he would look like he had a sunburn. I tried dialing back Color Sat and Skin Color and it helped to tame it but it was still present. I hope to give yours a try this weekend and see what it looks like on my 1.0 CineGray.

I used my meter on my OLED TV today to see if the same blue shift was present. It wasn't, so now I am pretty confident that it is just that my screen runs very cool. I did have a sample of the CineGray screen, and ran a grayscale sweep on it. It was the most neutral of all the samples I checked, but still had a little blue push. If you try out my settings, you will probably want to change the color temp to 6000K or 6500K so the red isn't too saturated.

Question Newb tripping over his own feet

A few questions from a newb stumbling through this:

When the guide says this:

Quote:
Dial in using 30% and 80% points using continuous measure (HCFR: F8) and adjusting Red and Blue offset for 30% and Red and Blue gain for 80% so as to get a dE of 2 or lower, though lower than 1 should be easily achievable.
Does this mean that after I do the 21 point sweep, that I press the 30% column in the top half of the software and then start doing a continuous sweep? Do I look at the deltas and adjust the red and blue offsets to get it as close to zero as possible? Then select the 80% column which changes the auto generated pattern to the 80% greyscale and then adjust the red and blue gains to get that delta as close to zero as possible?

Next question pertains to the settings right before adjusting the gamma curve

Quote:
Set “Target MaxL” to your 100% measure from the grayscale run.
What does this actually mean? What was my "100% measure" from the grayscale run?

I am struggling on what to set the Target MaxL at?

I set my diffuse white[nits] to 25 and set the MaxL to 150 (just used someone else's numbers). I set the Master MaxL to 4000 and was successful with my gamma curve, but I would like to know what to appropriately set the Target MaxL to?

Is this the brightest my Projector will get?

Also how do I determine what my firmware is at? I found the entries in the Information area of the menu, but the top set of numbers end with 111 but the bottom set of numbers end with 112.

Thanks for any help,

~Q

You can try to minimize the dE, but for this adjustment it's easier to try to get R/G/B all closest to 100% (as shown in the lower left window).

Quote:

100% measure is simply the measured luminance at 100% input, i.e., white.

I set my diffuse white[nits] to 25 and set the MaxL to 150 (just used someone else's numbers).
Which MaxL? There are four of them.

I set the Master MaxL to 4000 and was successful with my gamma curve, but I would like to know what to appropriately set the Target MaxL to?
That's the easiest one to set. It should be auto-populated; if not, set it to the measured 100% white luminance.

This is the brightest your highlights can be. However, the overall brightness is determined by the diffuse white setting.

I'm considering getting a meter and was wondering what is the end result benefits? I have a 5040 and have been using the harpervision hdr settings and/or running madVR (plus the HDR Optimizer app) for tone mapping.

Could anyone estimate an approximate level of "gain" in going down the calibration path? I mean would you estimate your overall image quality improved 20% from before/after your calibration? 10% 50% How would you estimate your improvement level?

Thanks

Hi, I have bought the tw9400 for a couple of weeks. It has been a great. However, i have noticed that the movie freezed when i access to the gamma menu for making adjustment. The movie continue to play again, after i have exited the gamma menu. Is it normal, ir the projector is faulty? Thanks fir helping me clarifying this

Does anyone have any before and after calibration images to see how much can be gained through the process?

Thanks

I started over a couple more times, and this was as flat as I could get the RGB levels with gamma. The blue seems a little off at 30, but if you adjust the Blue offset down to 51 it throws everything else out of whack.

I also don't know why I have to set it to 5500K to get it calibrated to 6500K, but it seems to work.

Here is a quick shot from my phone or my settings.


Here is the same using Orcus' settings.

These settings have been the closest to looking perfect on my setup using the 5040ub and xbox one s. I messed with some adjustments here and there but these seem to have been very close, though i should mention I don't have any tools going by my eyes but it looks amazing. The skin tones look great.

Thanks, I think my screen tends to make everything a little blue, hence my 5500k setting. It is tough to get skintones looking right. I am still tweaking mine a lot. I may start from scratch and try again to see what I come up with. I have noticed that I have to the the color temp depending on the movie. Some movies seem fine at 5500K, but others seem overly red and I change it to 6000 or 6500 before it looks correct.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who does that lol! I tend to move my color temp around depending on the movie to get it just right. Just doesn't seem to be a perfect spot for all movies....

Do these settings seem to address the red face issues? I still have problems with skin tones...

I end up changing the color temperature up to 6000k or 6500k because a lot of the time the image looks too red. It calibrated correctly at that temperature, but it just doesn't look correct all the time. Some movies are fine, but I get others where I get red skins tones.

That's my problem; most movies look excellent and others have a big issue with skin tones looking too red. Did anyone ever come to a conclusion on why the Epson seems to have this common problem?

What are you using as a pattern generator? And how are you setting up Hcfr?

I had serious issues with red until I started using my PC as the pattern generator and I stopped calibrating colors with the saturation measurement. Utilizing the 50_50 color checker to dial in the CMS yielded much better results.

What kept happening was that dialing in the CMS with saturation targets yielded too much Y for red at lower luminance targets. Utilizing 50% targets resulted in more accurate colors at 0-75% luminance, and less accuracy at 100%. This is a much more pleasing picture.

I was using a nVidia Sheild to chromecast the patterns. I followed a tutorial to set it up. Not sure what specific settings you are looking for. The color space is UHDTV - Rec2020/P3. I used the 50_50 color checker. I'm pretty sire it is my screen. When I would try other peoples settings the red was way off until I changed the color temp, then it would fall into line.

Hello! I consider myself fairly 'techie' but display calibration is quite the rabbit hole.

The Idiot's Guide to Manual Display Calibration on lightillusion.com is the most straightforward guide to calibration that I've found for SDR. I like how it lays out everything you need in the process- LightSpace ZRO (when CMS is mentioned here is it referring to LightSpace?), probe, patch generator (LightSpace ZRO can be used), calibration discs, and then the steps to follow.

Is there a similar straight forward you need A,B,C and then do 1,2,3 for UHD/HDR?

Hi All,

I am trying to calibrate my 5040UB for HDR. I get about 63 nits peak @ medium lamp on digital cinema. I tried high lamp which gets me a little more than 10 nits over medium, but then the projector, which is right over my head, is obnoxiously loud... I tried Natural and Bright Cinema which get me closer to ~110 nits with medium lamp, but I found the highlights to be a little too bright to be honest, so I figured I would stick with Digital Cinema and get the wider color gamut.

I had horrible errors on the low end for grayscale (way too much blue and red, way too little green). The only way I could get these under control at the low end was messing with the color uniformity.

The problem is that at the end of my calibration for 1000 nits, 27 nits diffuse white, I am having trouble dialing in the CMS. I tried using the 50% saturation targets but the other saturation levels are not really falling in line. If I try to get those closer to target then the 50% goes haywire... Is there anything I should try to get all the levels to hit their target more closely, or am I just out of luck with my display and screen?

I also see weird color gradients on skin tones with this calibration as well. It seems to be from the custom gamma settings I had to use to get the EOTF under control.

I've got a silver ticket grey screen. I am using an X-Rite i1Display Pro to measure and a CCast Ultra for getting HCFR internal patterns. I chose 'Projector' as the display type and left everything else alone. I manually set my projector to BT2020 color space and HDR 2.

My HCFR calibration is attached if that helps.

Thanks!
