Roxie, your i1D3 was profiled with against a Jeti by Tom Huffman before shipping out so you should not need to re-profile since you haven't even opened the box yet. You do have to re-profile from time to time though, but am not sure what the intervals are. Autocal with the Lumagen/Chromapure/i1D3 is much simpler than using the JVC autocal with the Spyder 5. However, it is definitely worth the time and effort to do the JVC autocal to establish a great baseline. After that, you can always do some final tweaks with Chromapure and the I1D3/Lumagen pro (in your case).Have to wait until I have time to learn the calibration process, have never done this before.What do I use to train my colorimeter? Well, since it's still in the box new have never opened I wouldn't expect it to be off already they are calibrated from the factory I would assume. Geeze, if I need a spectrometer to calibrate my colorimeter then what is needed to train/calibrate the spectrometer ?
Best I can do on short notice is a disney WOW disc calibration, no training required. Many have said the calibration process with Chromapure/Autocal and Lumagen is simple and mostly automated, my gut feeling is this will take a while to learn. Would be nice to plug and play, I think there is more that needs to be done than that I am guessing. Which it were so.
