An update on the status of the Beta Program
We have decided to bring forward a major change to the operation of ColourSpace, which has meant making some serious changes to the underlying code base.
This is a reason the last Beta Release was a little light on new features additions.
These changes were planned for v2 ColourSpace, but it seems logical to bring them forward based on the present interest in enhancing Probe Matching capabilities.
The change is to make Probe Matching
a post-profiling operation, rather than have the probe match burnt in to the measured data.
This means that the measured profile data is always available without any probe matching applied, but can be seen any time with any selected probe matching active.
That means you can directly compare different probe matches, and decide the correct one to use.
When taking Manual Measurements the same is true, in that you can choose to see the raw probe measurement, or see the live measurements with any selected Probe Matching applied.
When saving the profile, the selection of 'Probe Matching Active' being on/off defines what data is saved into the profile for later LUT Generation.
The options can be seen in the attached images, where the Probe Matching option in Probe Options no longer has an 'active' tick box, while in Graph Options the Probe Matching Active option enables/disables the select Probe Match combination.
(Toggle the images to see the change in the profile graph points with/without Probe Matching Active)
In addition to making Probe Matching a post-profiling operation we have also further developed the Volumetric Probe Matching
option, as was promised when the first iteration of Volumetric Probe Matching was released. In the next Beta update we have updated the standard 4 Colour probe matching method so that it no longer uses 'matrices', but instead uses the algorithms we developed for Volumetric Probe Matching. This means the 4 measurements are used to build a 3 dimensional volumetric object that is not restricted to a limited number of matrices (as with the LG/Bodner method).
The initial benefit of the new non-matrix based approach is there are no boundary issues associated with combining three different matrices, and has a further, future, benefit that we can (and will) add an enhanced probe matching mode based on this new process, but not limited to 4 colours...
The new update to the existing 4 colour probe matching method is called FCVM
- 4 Colour Volumetric Matching.
The future update to this will be known as MCVM
- Multi Colour Volumetric Matching.
And as promised, we will also be further developing the existing MPVM
Multi-point Volumetric Matching so those with hi-end probes, and the time required, can choose to get the best possible probe matching on any display.
