Hello, I recently calibrated my monitor. I have a Cinema HD monitor. I followed the instructions in the Preferences/Monitor/Calibrate screen. The Calibration that I did made the screen darker and more saturated than the factory calibration supplied by Apple.
Should I use my calibration or the factory calibration? I have had this monitor for 2 and 1/2 years.
I will also post this is the Premiere Pro CS4 forum.
I presume you mean an Apple Cinema Display. I've always found the Apple monitor calibration tool a bit flaky.
The only REAL monitor solution is a professional broadcast monitor. But a hardware calibration tool like a Spyder is a pretty good tool for getting the best out of your monitor.
Be aware that, at over 2 years old, any LCD monitor will begin to change colour with age, usually tending towards yellow.
