+Troubleshoot conflicts with Graphic Card/VideoLUTs or quality - MacOS 10.x
On MacOS 10.X conflicts with Graphic Cards are recognized quite rarely, however, if you face issues with the resulting calibration quality, verify these Presets:
- Turn off the Auto-Brightness-Adjustment in System Preferences -> Displays. This feature is present for Mac Laptop Displays with a built-in camera.
- Make sure, that the Contrast slider is set to ‘Normal’ (left position) in System Preferences -> Universal Access. Do never apply this option within a monitor calibration procedure.
- Turn off the option ‘Translucent Menu Bar’ in System Preferences -> Desktop&Appearance.
- Turn off the Energy Saving options for Laptop Displays in System Preferences -> Energy
If these presets do not solve your issue, please do the following in exactly this order:
- Quit i1Profiler if it is running
- Open your computer’s System Preferences
- Click on “Displays”.
- For the display you are trying to profile, click on “Color” tab
- Uncheck the “Show profiles for this display only” option
- Find a profile called “DisplayProfile_Linear.icc” in the profile list and copy to your /Library/ColorSync/Profiles folder. If the linear profile is missing, control click the application icon and select "Show package contents". The linear profile is stored in the "Contents > "Resources" folder (ColorMunki Display) or the "Contents" > "MacOS" > "Profiles" folder (i1Profiler) in the application’s package.
- Click on this profile (the LUTs should change, because they are set to linear now)
- Close the System Preference window
- Connect your i1Display Pro and launch i1Profiler.
- Select “Basic” mode and then choose “Display Profiling”.
- Set Display Technology type to correct setting for your display (i.e. CCFL”, “White LED”), D65 whitepoint, and 120 for luminance.
- Uncheck Enable Ambient Light Smart Control.
- Uncheck both “ADC” and “Adjust brightness manually” in the Measurement step.
- Build a new display profile for that display
Repeat this procedure at least once more and then build a new display profile using whatever settings that you previously used.
