View Full Version : Calibrating an lcd monitor for video editing
2008 February 27th, 02:31
is there any reasonably easy way to calibrate an lcd monitor for editing and color correcting video. I don't have a monitor calibrator, the kind that goes on the screen and calibrates for you. I just need a good bit of settings, or some kind of tutorial of a way to get the best out of the monitor.
any help is appreciated.

Calibration without a colorimeter can be hit and miss. Having said that...
One of the best ways I know of is to approach one of the larger print-makers in your area, such as Queensberry (an international company) and ask them to send you a starter kit. This will usually contain a CD, lots of paper info and a color print which you can use to adjust your LCD as close as possible to the print. The CD usually contains a digital version of the print, as well as the color profiles for each of the print papers the company specializes in.
Your part will be to tweak your monitor settings as best you can, given the LCD's contrast capability etc.

There's a method called blue gun, which you can also do with a midnight blue gell. You'd have to look it up on the internet though.
