Monitor Calibration for Film Compositing
Posted 08 August 2005 - 12:47 PM
I was reading about these
I don't know if people use them for film work. If they do so, which one is good?
Please do guide me.

Colorimeter-assisted profiling software will calibrate your monitor(s) to a standard based on how the human eye perceives color. It will NOT manipulate the colors to fit a certain output standard or device description, however - it will only ensure that your monitor accurately displays the color numbers sent to your video card by your OS and ICC compliant applications. Applying color correction to your images through an ICC-compliant application (Photoshop, AfterEffects...) will work outside of your monitor profile, but your monitor profile will ensure that you see those colors accurately.
