There should finally be no difference in saturation between HSTM on vs off. Please stay with "don't desaturate" for now. The current desaturation options don't work too well.
I just tested madVRhdrMeasure100 and I love it!
The saturation reworked has payed off!
I have watched with defaut settings (REC709, Gamma2.2, Don't Desaturate, DynamicClipping 0, Sky strength 0, recover shadow detail 0) some scenes of:
- Guardian of the Galaxy 2
- X-Men Apocalyspe
- The Meg
It was just pure eye candy, now that we can have HTSM goodness while preserving color saturation!
The new default setting of V100 are very good.
All the bad scenes I had with 99b are resolved with V100.
However, there is this one scene where HTSM is very active... and maybe darkening the shadow detail a bit too much in the intro of Guardian of the Galaxy 2.
Here the comparison: HTSM ON vs OFF:
But generally while the effect is also strong, I still like like HSTM better anyway:
Otherwise, I did not look for flickering, just playing pause, and switching back and forther with 2 profiles and shortcuts.
EDIT: I compared HTSM 0% strength with 100% strength ;-)
The default settings did not overwrite my 2 comparison profile and I missed that 50% strength is the new recommended default settings.
Probably with 50% strength, it will be even safer. But I liked 100% strength a LOT anyway!
