With LCD displays, blue blacks are the norm. To create a neutral black, one needs to raise the black level significantly so that R=G=B. And this will look like a washed out display.
Fortunately, near blacks read so dark, that we don’t usually perceive the bluish blacks when color correcting. Just watch your scopes to make sure your blacks ar…[Read more]
I can’t comment on your profile installation issues but…
I don’t think you can limit the color space of your wide gamut displays by using .ICC profiles when using non-color managed applications that are used for video. Yes, Photoshop will work, but not video apps.
You can create a 3d LUT for Resolve with DisplayCal that will work for…[Read more]

A couple things:
Set your Eizo to “native” to insure that you can capture 100% of sRGB after you create your LUT. When I do this, I calibrate my Eizo using displayport/color navigator to D65 / native gammut / and select “contrast”. This calibration is stored in one of the memory settings in the display. Use this memory setting to create yo…[Read more]
If you are just starting out in color grading , I would use the Color Navigator software to create a REC709, Gamma 2.2 (or 2.4) calibration that will be stored in your display. It’s not as accurate as a true 3D LUT, but it’s a lot easier than learning to create 3D LUTs using Resolve.
Once you’ve made the calibration using Color Navigator (using…[Read more]
A couple things:
- The Apple supplied profile does make an extra punchy image and is not good for accuracy, or even white point.
- I think your issue has to do with the 1886 tone curve which expands the deepest shadows so that you can see separation between all the tones. I think this is a flawed approach and you will better served by c…
