Best way to calibrate without pattern generator?

Hi everyone,

I have two LG C8 displays that I've been trying to get calibrated for a while now. I purchased a colorimeter only to realize that I could only generate SDR patterns with mobileforge. So, I haven't calibrated HDR/DV at all, and I could just buy a C9 for the price of a pattern generator.

I understand that I cannot actually calibrate in HDR/DV, but does anyone have any tips on how I can get close? Various presets look dramatically different to the point that one of them has to be way off, and I've been going back and forth with things for so long I really can't determine what looks right. Thanks in advance for your help. If only the calibration I paid for before trying to do it myself was done correctly :/

If you have an Intel integrated graphics card laptop you can use an HDFury to "inject" HDR and Dolby Vision metadata to calibrate.

I did this very successfully on my 65" B8.

PM me if you can't find one. Exact model is HDFury Integral 600mhz 4:4:4

Would you mind sending me a PM? Not at 15 posts yet. I do have a laptop with integrated graphics but I'm not sure where to begin with this.

I took a look at what you linked and I’m just having trouble wrapping my head around it. I’m sort of lost in what exactly this device does, how I generate the patterns, if I have the other necessary equipment, and how to tie everything into calman autocal so the proper patterns generate.

I really appreciate your help. If I can get this done for only $250 I’ll be eternally grateful.
