This is the LG Template, its looking very good, just it will require a few more days of waiting for the instructions to be written, about how to connect with TV, the calibration steps etc.
That free LG Template for free LG Template for DeviceControl will enable DDC controls and 1D LUT and 3D LUT upload capabilities. (CalMAN don't offer 1D LUT upload).
Installing that user LG template to DeviceControl, it will provide the capability from anyone to use LG 2018 internal LUT capabilities without using CalMAN. That feature works also as a complete backup solution; something not possible using CalMAN, since CalMAN is not offering backup/upload of the 1D LUT values.
DeviceControl and instructions about how to install that user LG Template will be available shortly. It's free utility/template available for LightSpace users.
The LightSpace profiling procedure is very simple, initially you are taking a Quick Profile of Primary only measurement (81 patch measurement) or Grayscale Large (36 patch measurement) and generating a colorspace conversion from that data, then you will export the 1D LUT and using DeviceControl and LG Template, you will upload that 1D LUT internally to the LG TV.
After that you will continue by taking cube volumetric measurements required for 3D LUT table generation and then export the 3D LUT and upload it also.
The dedicated thread for LG's and 3D LUT profiling for LightSpace users to AVSForum will be updated with instructions and recommendation of steps/settings.
Additionally, an important advantage having 1D LUT upload capability is that from one measurement run of Quick Profile of Primary only (81 patches) or Grayscale Large (36 patch measurements) you can generate 1D LUT tables with different gamma exponent value. No wasted time when you want different target gamma exponent anymore, no more quesswork, calibrating one-by-one each point (zero color science, random results).
DeviceControl is a very powerful program, with many capabilities beyond managing PGenerator, such as the direct control of many Panasonic TVs, as well as Lumagen LUT Boxes, with open the capabilities to been added other display manufactures in the future also.
