My Two CalMAN HT Enthusiast Custom Workflows

I now have two custom workflows, my original Extended (i.e. over-the-top) version and the newer more reasonable adaptation Essentials version. Guaranteed not to sell, so they are free.

HT Enthusiast Extended Workflow Features:

► This is an "everything & the kitchen sink" workflow, definitely not KISS - if you like simple you may want to look elsewhere
► Home layout outlines the workflow structure with full access
► Comprehensive Notes Management - access button always at bottom right
► Integrated Session Setup layout with hardware configuration and dynamic range assessment,
with access to Meter Profile Analysis, Meter Stability, and Screen Uniformity layouts
► Single layout takes all desired Pre- or Post-calibration readings
► Expanded Multi-Point Grayscale calibration, pre/post-cal charts, and datagrid layouts
► CMS Gamut detailed calibration layout
► Saturation Sweep detailed calibration, pre/post-cal charts, and datagrid layouts
► 3D Color Cube LUT calibration, detailed charts, and datagrid layouts
► Gamut Luminance & Color Check cal assessment, pre/post-cal charts and datagrid layouts
► Compare Calibrations layout lets you check two calibrations side by side
► High-count calibration points, HDR friendly with EOTF charts
► DeltaE is ICtCp Compensated as default, and with Luminance Error where indicated
► DEITP vs. De 2000 comparison layout to see both side by side, accessed
from Post-Calibration readings layout, using Post-Cal or new readings
► All DDC layout has all DDC controls in one place, accessible from Session Setup & Final Check

Looks excellent - sadly unlikely to work with my old CalMAN 2016 and CalMAN Home does not allow custom workflows so screwed

I should have purchased the All Access Enthusiast licence but there was no clarity on Portraits plans while waiting for Home - didn't realise it was going to be so limited. Shockingly bad strategy by Portrait - don't think they have won any friends. Feel sorry for Tech like Tyler who have to follow dim-witted Corporate …..

CalMAN missing a trick here - am sure people are quite happy to pay a few extra bucks for stuff like Custom Workflows. I am unlikely to purchase now and will try out HCFR and/or ChromaPure in conjuction with my old 2016 CalMAN.

What is the CalMAN version you have? If it's 5.6 I have versions that work with it. Look down the history section of the Extended version and see if they might work for you, though they are earlier versions. Who knows you might even like them better

I have updated HT Enthusiast Extended Workflow to version 19.1.0.

What's new:

- SpectraCal corrected the DEITP Collection Avg datafield bug and they have been restored to show the value instead of 0.
- Added large AutoCal button to all calibration layouts.
- The DDC/Display option in the MultiPoint Calibration layout is now automatically turned off during AutoCal.
- Switched the Luminance chart in the MultiPoint Calibration layout to bar mode reflecting actual Nits.
- New DEITP vs. De 2000 comparison layout to see both side by side, accessed from Post-Calibration readings layout, using Post-Cal or new readings.
