Currently Being ModeratedAug 28, 2007 6:43 AM (in response to MacFrankie G)I am not sur if this is a big help:
I have a MacBookPro with an external Apple 20" Cinema display , and a Mac Pro with 2 23" Cinema's.
They are all calibrated with Spyder Pro and none of them show the same colors.
This leads me to believe it must be a Spyder pro issuePB, iMac, G5, MacBookPro, Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.4.8), 2*23" Cinema's
Currently Being ModeratedAug 28, 2007 9:03 AM (in response to MacFrankie G)Most calibration software will allow you to set your screen brightness to specified value, eg, 120 Cd/m^2. Setting both monitors to the same value should already help. Otherwise, you can adjust the brightness visually, by displaying a white background on both screens.
Laptop displays have a smaller gamut than their desktop variants, they cannot, therefore, display saturated colours. Images consisting only of less saturated colors should however display roughly the same on both monitors (well, one is glossy, the other not, things will always look different).
Currently Being ModeratedAug 29, 2007 3:16 PM (in response to MacFrankie G)I use a MacBook and an LCD Studio Display calibrated with EyeOne. The colour is never the same even though the white point and gamma are set to the same value, at the moment at D50 the MacBook is slightly magenta.
You should set the brightness via the calibration software. If you use the system controls the Colour Temperature will vary with the brightness setting whereas the Calibration Software will maintain the correct value. Once set, disable the monitor controls in System Preferences.Macbook, PowerMac G4, Mac OS X (10.4.10)
