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.
