It is impossible to calibrate a Mac system on any device with DisplayCal. On Windows 10 no problem at all. On MacOs ugly crushed blacks and dark hues in Preview, and also in Adobe Lightroom Develop mode!! (in the Library modul no problem, interesting) The strange thing is, that if I switch off to use vga support (in LR), the problem’s gone… Wtf..?
The same problem with basICColor software, but no problem with i1Profiler, the offical software for i1Display Pro (I have this device)! Why is that?? Any idea?
i1Display Pro on Amazon Disclosure: If you purchase any product of your choice on Amazon through one of our referral links, a small percentage goes to support DisplayCAL. Please note that this does not impact the price you pay. Thanks for your consideration!
No news from Apple that I’ve seen, but I wouldn’t hold my breath. This bug has been around a while. Certain profile types just seem to have issues in some situations. There is a workaround using “1xCurve+Matrix profile with black point compensation” described on a previous post:
The workaround does work (by re-creating profiles), but I guess it creates a less precise profile. Well, at least my images exported from Lightroom look the same in Quicklook and Preview now. Following this thread in case there are any updates in the future.
Hi tarna! How do you turn off vga support in LR ? I use LR 5 and don’t see such option. I am working on finding a solution for the blacks to stop crushing in the develop module. For ‘Preview’ the workaround has worked , but not for LR develop module. Thanks!
Running into the same problem. Wanted to let everyone know that the workaround works as described. Previewing the image will look the same. However, if you email or text the image, it will be readjusted incorrectly. Thanks Apple…
