Anyone have any tips?
On my set I can set different values only in Standard and Movie profiles. In Dynamic and Natural SDR and HDR overwrite each other, very annoying. I go 50 in HDR and 20 in SDR.
I go with Movie, currently Warm1, but I will calibrate it with HCFR again today.
I still searching for HDR settings for brighter, but not too bright pictures in a complete dark room:
1) Dimming High, Dynamic Contrast off: Good in some Movies, but HDR doesn't pop very often.
2) Dimming High, Dynamic Contrast low: great in some Movies, HDR pops in dark scenes, bright scenes look like that they have less contrast, because the complete picture gets too bright, so not even worth to try Dynamic Contrast High.
3) Dimming Standard, Dynamic Contrast low: somewhere below or equal 1).
4) Dimming Standard, Dynamic Contrast High: Somewhere between 1 and 2. Not the high HDR pop, but better contrast and not too bright. Think I will stay with it.
I really miss the Active HDR setting from my B7 OLED. LGs Dynamic Tone Mapping is great. Set and forget, every movie looks fine. Now some movies look better in 1), some in 2), 3 sucks and I hope 4) will be the best compromise.
