Yes thanks to Javs who helped me get the new madvr dynamic tone mapping working, I’m over the moon with the results!
I have been using madvr for years now with all my past JVCs, I recently moved up from the X9900 to the NX9.
The auto tone mapping on the NX9 is good, I could never get HDR looking good on any of my past JVCs so I gave up.
I was happy with JVCs new tone mapping for about a week, then I kept hearing how good it was with the “new” test builds on madvr, so I needed to enquire further…
Javs helped me, and unless you know and understand HDR this stuff its very complicated, plus the updates are changing almost daily with the beta tone mapping.
I think I’m now on version 51 and its “out of this world” and that’s not a lie!
As it changes and measures every frame on the fly, the image is always good, even on a fadeout you see the nits on the stats go down to zero, so the image is BLACK, real BLACK.
I have so much light in LOW lamp on my rather large curved 145” wide Studio Tek micro perf screen. Low lamp was impossible with the NX9 auto tone mapping.
The auto tone mapping on the NX9 is turned off and my fade outs go straight to black with DI auto 2.
Yes this is truly something amazing, I’m so happy to have spectacular results finally with HDR using madvr dynamic tone mapping.
I’m no expert on this so please don’t ask me questions how does it do this and that, I just can’t explain those details as I don’t know sorry…
Others on this thread are experts and there are other threads to go to for help, that’s the best place to start.
But be warned, using madvr isn’t for the faint hearted, you need time to learn it, it’s not something you can have up and running over night.
I have spent hours, weeks, months and years perfecting settings, playing test material over and over again experimenting.
My settings won’t be the same as the settings you may need, there are just too many variables….
But if you can put in the time slowly learning it and understanding it, the rewards certainly outweigh the time spent in learning.
Who else here is using the new madvr tone mapping with one of the new JVC NX models?
For those that want to go on the journey this is a good place to start. https://www.avsforum.com/forum/26-ho...tpc-madvr.html
