    I’m trying to calibrate my monitor (BenQ PV270 + i1 Display Pro) with Davinci Resolve 16. I’m also using DisplayCal 3.8.

    First, I notice that the target area for the calibrator on the monitor takes up the entire screen, where before it was a smaller square. Secondly, I’m getting an error message pop up that says, “Error- Failed to re-seed the veronoi after 100 tries – too many node insertion failures ?

    Any ideas what to do to fix this?

    Thanks!

    Adjust it to be as small as possible.

    Make sure any dynamic features of the monitor are disengaged (dynamic/auto dimming, -contrast etc.)

    Make sure min. display update delay for Resolve is set to 1000ms (unless you changed it deliberately, this will be set automatically).

    Thanks for the reply

    There is an initial target square that pops up that I’m able to adjust fine. BUT, when I then proceed to the next step, the target then takes up the entire screen on the my grading monitor. Before, I was able to make adjustments to the size and in the next step that square size would be represented on my grading monitor. For some reason it’s not working the same way anymore.

    What selection(s) do you have under “Display” in DisplayCAL?

    I would need to know the list of choices under the “Display” dropdown.

    Is this what you’re looking for?

    Yes. What happens when you make the patch window as small as possible?

    When I make the grey target patch as small as possible using the minus button on the gui it does not affect giant grey patch on my external display.

    As a side note: I also notice that the RGB controls affect the measurements in DisplayCal in opposite directions. Before, when I would raise the red channel for example, the red channel in DisplayCal would  go up. Now, it’s reversed in this version. Meaning display cal reduces the red channel when I raise the red channel on my monitor.

    Is this a new feature, or improvement?

    Nothing has changed there.

    Do any of my settings look incorrect?

    Please run the following in Terminal and post the output after closing the measurement window (note this is one long single line):

    /Applications/DisplayCAL/DisplayCAL.app/Contents/MacOS/python -S -s -c "import sys; sys.frozen = 'macosx_app'; sys.path = ['/Applications/DisplayCAL/DisplayCAL.app/Contents/Resources/lib/python2.7', '/Applications/DisplayCAL/DisplayCAL.app/Contents/Resources/lib/python2.7/lib-dynload']; import site; import re; from DisplayCAL import config as cfg, localization as lang, worker; from DisplayCAL.wxaddons import wx; print 'wxPython', wx.__version__; from DisplayCAL import RealDisplaySizeMM as RDSMM; from DisplayCAL.wxMeasureFrame import MeasureFrame; cfg.initcfg(); cfg_displays = cfg.getcfg('displays', raw=True); print 'Displays:', cfg_displays; match = re.search('@ -?\d+, -?\d+, (\d+)x(\d+)', cfg_displays); print 'Match?', match.groups() if match else 'NO'; print 'Display 0 size (mm)', RDSMM.RealDisplaySizeMM(0); lang.init(); app = wx.App(0); f = MeasureFrame(); f.Show(); app.MainLoop(); print 'size.measureframe', cfg.defaults['size.measureframe']; print 'dimensions.measureframe', cfg.getcfg('dimensions.measureframe'); print 'pattern_geometry x y w h area', worker.get_pattern_geometry()"

    This assumes DisplayCAL is installed in the default location (/Applications/DisplayCAL), otherwise you’ll have to adjust the paths.
