for sharing the files.
you mention in previous posts that in your personal setup, you have user 1 for HD, user 2 for 4K, and user 3 for 3D. Would you mind sharing your settings for each of those user modes? For example on User 3 for 3D what color profile and gamma curve do you use?
Appreciate your time and help.
I'm glad the guide worked out for you. I wrote it specifically with someone like yourself in mind. All the information you need to get the job done without having to search around the forum. Now you can settle in to the curve you like best.
As for the User Modes this is what I ended up with, pretty basic. I used to play a lot more with Iris and could stand to bring it to -8ish for 1.78:1 content (108" on my 136" 2.35:1 screen) but I like the brightness. In the rare case I stream, I'm currently using a JAVS V3 Curve (I forget which one specifically). For 99.9% of my 4K consumption I have a Panasonic UB820 which has built in Tone Mapping/SDR2020 Conversion which means it will take a 4K HDR disc and spit out a glorious 4K SDR image while maintaining the BT.2020 Wide Color Gamut. This looks even better than the loaded curve; and because the projector never gets an HDR signal, it never defaults to Gamma D, ever. I singularly recommend the UB820 because of this. 4K SDR2020 Conversion with the UB820 is glorious and the way 4K should have been from the start, everything you expect from HD Blu-ray with MORE color, MORE resolution MORE pop and zero hassle. No dark discs, no messing with Gamma, just awesome sauce.
