can i create a 3DLut file for my display without a light meter ?
i am hoping some of the calibration experts here might know if it is possible to create a 3DLut file for my display without a light meter ? (or if i can use a generic 3DLut file for ex , if i know some of the basic parameters my display, like max nits, black level and the color space it is intended for).
is this possible? if yes, how do i create it . if this is a less accurate method, it would still be useful to have access to it for testing purposes, until i can get access to a light meter and can use the hardware creation method
the purpose of creating the 3DLut file is to load it in madvr media player, so i can play 4K rec2020 color space 10bit video files on my HTPC, but send it as down converted resolution 1080p (but still maintaining the rec.2020 WCG) to my 1080p display (which can accept a video signal of DCI-P3 coverage of 94%, ). it is technically possible to do this (as confirmed by madshi previously, but he also referred to needing a light meter to create the 3Dlut file ), but i need a 3DLut file to implement it.
You can create a profile from EDID data in display with DisplayCAL (File menu). If EDID data is accurate (and it is a very big "if") you can feed DisplayCAL 3DLUT maker with that profile and the source profile you want.
