p.1 #1 · ColorEyes Display Pro and iMac/MBP


Can someone point me to (or advise me) to clear instructions on using CEDP and Mac's? I just downloaded the new update for Lion. Their website has no manual (that I can find) and the help is very meager.
I have an iMac and MBP. Am I correct that i should choose : Luminance target- 100cd/m2; gamma target - L*; Black rendering - absolute; white point target - D65 ? And Adjust Monitor White? :?:
I arrived at these settings from searches, etc.
Also, how the heck do you interpret the graph after the profile is determined?
Thanks for any help.

Those are good 'get into the ballpark' numbers. there aren't a lot of hard absolute numbers to use during calibration but rather a lot of 'it depends'. The luminance value is OK but it depends on where the print is going to be displayed. A darker room wants lower values and the range is something like 85-120. The gamma can be either 2.2 or L* (L* gives better linearity). White target is OK @ D65 (it's the most common) although again, you can move it around a bit (I use 6000K). Black point should be around 0.3 (or 300:1 if you can specify contrast ratio)

I assume the 'graph' is the dE display and you would like to see the values around 1 or less although for the darker colors/grays, you will probably see a rising value.

Thanks - I need to experiment with the values. Just wish ColorEyes had a little more documentation!

yea, no doubt about that. I tried CEDP but settled on BasICColor instead.

If (when) you have more questions, just shout
