Re: 3D Calibration – Discussions on Profiling
First, a colorimeter will calibrate 3D fine as long as the viewing angle of the meter is not so wide that you can’t get accurate readings through the lens of 3D glasses. If the colorimeter will calibrate 2D well for the display you are working on, it will calibrate 3D equally well. But if the colorimeter has problems with the display tech you are calibrating in 2D mode, it will be just as bad in 3D mode. Some colorimeters have problems with LED light sources… so those won’t work well with LED/LCD in 2D or 3D modes, for example. If the colorimeter has a huge angle of view (picks up light to the sides), it’s going to be difficult to work with for 3D calibration since you only want the profile to correct for light passing through the 3D glasses.
Spectracal says profiling works for 3D calibration — but I haven’t had time to dig into this to determine if my 2D profile would be good or whether I would need to put the TV in 3D mode, calibrate that to d65 and measure that for my reference for the profile.
