'Use Mac Display Color profile for viewers' FOR PC?

PostMon Jun 19, 2017 11:47 am

I used to use 'Use Mac Display Color profile for viewers' (in Color Managment) in Resolve for Mac. I think a similar option for PC would be good (or may even exist elsewhere?)

I have a problem that Resolve on my PC (Dell XPS) has the same colours as Windows picture viewer / desktop which are over-saturated (whereas Photoshop takes on the profile settings from the ICC profile generated by i1Profiler/i1Display).

The screen grab shows reds in Resolve and Chrome as overly red and the Photoshop rendition which is correct.

Please help as it would be nice to have some accuracy to this screen/Resolve and not rely on connecting an external monitor.

You need to connect an external monitor through a Blackmagic display device for best results. Anything else is going to be compromised.

I don't dispute that it's nice to have a calibrated GUI display, but I still wouldn't rely on it for color.
