How To Calibrate a Monitor? Lot’s of different approaches towards this topic. In this video tutorial, I am going to demonstrate an advanced approach to how you correctly calibrate your monitor using two different methods. One method we are going to take a look at is going to be using color management of your operating system. This method works for both OS and Windows and for many people is the way to go! Another method is more advanced and we will be working with actual 3D LUTS with our system.
Using 3D LUT route has much better advantages over standard OS calibration. For professional use, generally, you don’t want to have your operating system “contaminating” your colors, which is what potentially happens during the standard calibration. Even though I use DisplayCal software in my video, this applies to native calibration software of your calibration tool as well. The beauty of using 3D LUT route, that you not grounded by OS! Your monitor essentially becomes free from the system. Meaning, in theory, you can plug into any computer and get exactly the same image! Only small problem with that, you need to have build-in LUT into your monitor, or a LUT BOX to do that. Anyways! Just watch the video and enjoy the flight! It’s not the most entertaining video to watch but will definitely help you a lot! By the way, now! You don’t need to use third-party Decklink Cards to connect Second Display into Resolve!
You don’t need to use LUT route if you are a photographer! Standard OS calibration works very well so you don’t have to worry about complex methods.
