Thanks. I could have sworn it's done it before when I didn't mean it. For example, if I press the auto cal button, but then looking at the options available, decide I do NOT want to proceed and press "cancel".
Please could it not wait until I press "ok" on that dialogue after I've selected my Autocal options? Or at the very least, prompt and confirm with "are you sure"? I feel it is much too eager to send that unity LUT.
(I also hate the full 100% white pattern burning into my display, which appears while I am busy reading that dialogue box and choosing my Autocal options. The first pattern should not be requested until after I press "ok")
More than once, my finger slipped - I meant to press "read continuous", but I accidentally pressed "autocal", and BANG! Too late, factory reset required losing everything
If you just wanna do a 3D and leave the factory 1D, Just skip straight to the 3D LUT page and don’t do the full reset or 1D LUT step. This is assuming you have never calibrated or reset this picture mode before.
Ok thanks. What if I have
done a calibration of that particular mode before - will it (I hope) keep my previous one?
I still don't understand why it can't save the readings used to generate the 1DLUT to disc for later re-use? Once it's calculated the 1DLUT of 1,024 values that is sent to the TV, irrespective of the DDC-read restrictions, surely that is the 1,024 value 1DLUT that's "good" for upload at any time?

For example, even if you stop AutoCAL of 1D LUT, close CalMAN and re-open it, you can't continue the 1D LUT AutoCAL, since there no DDC of the exact points you use during AutoCAL, which stored internally to the TV.
The 1D LUT has 1024 entries, so when AutoCAL want to adjust one point, it has to re-calculate+interpollate and send a whole 1D LUT of 1024 values to the TV. There no capability to send data values for a specific point only.
Ah. I may be beginning to understand the reasons for the restriction. On my previous Samsung as there was no way to read certain values from the TV, Calman had to "do full DDC reset, then carefully keep records of what it's changed". If that's the same kind of thing I could appreciate the situation a bit more.
Its not like Lumagen, where you send only the data of the specific point you calibrate.
There no way also to retrieve the 1D LUT data stored internally to the TV and continue based to that data, or extract and save the TV data for backup.
When you profile a display, you have to perform the whole procedure in one calibration session, not do the 1D LUT one day and continue the other day. (or pause any procedure one day and continue the other)
Pity, but if it's as above I see why.
You can skip doing 1D LUT AutoCAL, but not reset the 1D LUT, as when you reset with UNITY it will disabled your RGB balance controls, and it will require to have [email protected]
, [email protected]
and Color @50.
When you will not reset, you can do the White balance of 100% White using normal OSD RGB-High (or better do it using SM WB RGB Gains), select 2.2 preset and set your BR slider to the value you see that is better for your setup. Then proceed to 3D LUT.
Right, ok. So I can at least do some of what I wanted. That's good! On that second method, why the need to set Gamma 2.2? Or is that just to get the optimum Brightness number, and it can be changed to 2.4 later?
Thankyou both for your replies!
