I am new to DisplayCal and struggling a bit to understand it all. Yes! I have read the documentation. But maybe I’m just dumb.
Can anyone tell me how exactly to read the results? Was it a good calibration or not? I don’t want to go into crazy deep detail. I just want to know if I’ve gotten things horribly wrong or not.
My newly created pr…[Read more]
So you try gamma 1-5 preset on OSD and get the one taht behaves close to what you want.
I managed to figure this out and have found that setting 3 is gamma 2.23. 4 is Gamma 2.4. I am wondering now, because I am using the Leaming LUT ProII in my workflow for my Blackmagic Pocket Cinema 4k, if I should be working in gamma 2.4. The recommended wo…[Read more]
If you read through all the posts, you will note that I have replaced this monitor with the BenQ EW3270U. I just couldn’t deal with the constant issues with profiling this monitor. I’m way happier with the Ben Q. Although I will say that viewing too close is an issue. By the looks of it, you want to be at least 3 feet away.
I do not seem to be able to perform a verification… The button at the bottom is greyed out: see attached screenshot 1
Or: when you can check the box: “show profile information”, after profiling – is this the verification document? I have attached these results in attachments 2 & 3. Can you tell me if I am on the right track? I have no id…[Read more]
Just care about left side measured gamma in HTML report. Choose the clostest OSD setting to your target gamma.
You can use HCFR too.
What is HCFR? And how do I know what the closest OSD setting is? Are you talking about the 1-5 “gamma” settings on my BenQ? So as you instructed above, I should measure these with DisplayCal and then choose the o…[Read more]
Ok, I understand. I’ll measure them tomorrow. But do I measure these with the currently active icc profile installed?
And same question goes for calibration. Just to confirm: when you calibrate and profile: It does not matter what your display’s icc profile is in systems preferences/displays/colour. Correct?
Is there li…[Read more]
Great news today. My nice new EW3270U has just arrived.
I’m about to calibrate it. I have your recommendation of correction. But I am unsure of a setting in the monitor. There are 5 levels of “gamma”. The factory setting is at 3. There is no indication in the manual of what this is exactly. Would you have any idea?
And do I calibrate it wh…[Read more]
Sorry, I did mean the PD3200U model.
What would be the reason for choosing the P3 alternative? Wider gamut. Future-proofing for P3 and HDR workflow?
Why does this monitor avoid the disadvantages of a wide-gamut monitor issues discussed previously in your replies?
I only view my monitor from straight on, so viewing angles are not so i…[Read more]
Thanks again Vincent
I’m not sure why you keep mentioning “photo work”. I work primarily in video.
So I am going to purchase a BenQ PD3400U. From your suggestions and what is available here and in my price range, I think this is the best solution for me. Do you think it is the right choice? Or is there any other monitor in those you sugg…[Read more]
It can be good enough but for photo work. Just ensure that visually uniformity is OK when UC on.
Did you mean when UC is off?
Since for rpinting & such contrast is not usually a problem, just use GPU to get your desired whitepoint. You have an AMD, those card have high bidepth luts & dithering so even through an 8bit DVI connection & whitepoint…
Thanks so much for all your information, Vincent. I have had this monitor for a year and I really had no idea just how inappropriate it was for semi-accurate colour work. I’ve never been happy with the colours, but I’d always thought that was more to do with my colour management.
I am essentially feeling like a replacement monitor is the only r…[Read more]
In latest news, I have calibrated and profiled this display, with UC off and one of the above profiles active before calibration. Target WP of 6500
I would say that that red/magenta over-exaggeration is still there. And overall the contrast looks actually a little worse (less contrasty) compared to a previous calibration with i1Studio. A…[Read more]
If you meant colormunki display, it’s a colorimeter and you can (should) choose a suitable colorimeter correction.
UP2*16D models looks like an hybrid more close to the newer WLED PFS phosphor. There are user made corrections at 3nm that show typical red channel signature spikes but with a very raised floor:
(CCSS Dell, DELL UP2716D (…
- This warning can be ignored for a video monitor that is not part of the desktop.
I’m coming up on the same error whilst calibrating my reference monitor through resolve. I am using a decklink card.
My questions is, when you say “a video monitor that is not part of the desktop”. Is this referring to a video monitor that is connected t…[Read more]
I have been doing a bit of looking around, and I have not been able to find a definitive answer to this first question, but it looks like this monitor is a GB-LED-backlit Phosphor LCD. So should I be using the “Correction” setting “LCD GB-r-LED/RG Phospohor LED family…?
As well, I am still learning about calibration (3 years down the track!),…[Read more]
The first thing I came across was the Radeon’s configuration software, however, I’m on a Mac, so I don’t know how to access this.
Yes, I’ll be using DisplayCAL from now on.
I’ve calibrated the following displays with a Colormunki on OSX 10.15 using i1Studio, but I’ve been unhappy with the results and functionality, so I’m giving DisplayCal a try.
DELL UP2716D – HDMI to GPU (RX580)
DELL U2414H – mDP to GPU (RX580)
Whilst calibrating I noticed that the “input colour format” on the screens’ hardware settings…[Read more]
