It will provide the most substantial upgrade in ChromaPure's history.

Starting today (12-18-2014), anyone who purchases a new ChromaPure license will be entitled to a free upgrade to v. 3.0 upon release.

For already existing customers, ChromaPure 3.0 will be priced at $79.

I thought that ChromaPure's licenses were lifetime updates??? :scratch:

***EDIT*** I think I just had a senior moment up above. I see way back in 2010 Tom stated that point upgrades would be free and version numbers would be a modest fee. I'll be upgrading when it comes out! :T

Hi CP users, Tom Huffman has announced today that ChromaPure 3 will be released finally in the next few days.

In advance of the official release, Tom uploaded a demo which provides some indications about the new look and feature set of the new version release.

ChromaPure is video calibration software...similar to CalMan. If you hire a professional calibrator, more than likely they'll be using one of the two. You can also buy it, but external equipment (is needed) and some training is required to use it optimally.

Many thanks Todd!

New ChromaPure 3.0 demo video added:

Calibration Templates

http://www.chromapure.com/movies3/calibrationTemplate/calibrationTemplates.html

This is a very powerful new feature in ChromaPure 3.

Using the new Custom Targets feature in Raw Data and Excel templates developed by us and posted on our web site, you can create a report for literally any display calibration feature.

The demo above is an example of measuring saturations in 10% increments.

ChromaPure 3.0.3 is now available for download.

This is a bug fix release only for version 3.0. All licensed users of 3.0 are entitled to this release free of charge. There will be one additional bug fix release in a couple of weeks.

Bug Fixes

Using Meter Correction caused the application to report incorrect dE values for white

The AccuPel generator was not initializing properly

The APL and small window pattern sizes for built-in generator were not working

The Rev B i1D3 meter was not initializing properly

Any license with a large number of meters was not displaying fully on the Home page

Several meters were not detecting the serial number

Accessing the built-in drop-down patterns would cause a fatal exception

The i1D3 meter options in Settings were disabled

The DVDO TPG generator was missing from Professional Licenses

The test patterns were incorrect when using the 75% of Rec. 709 gamut.

ChromaPure 3.0.4 is now available for download.

New Features

The Gamma module now displays target luminance data in addition to target gamma.

All other measurements are now disabled until a white reference is first measured.

NOTE: There are three white references (pre-calibration, post-calibration, and calibration). If you measure a white reference in a pre-calibration module, then this number spreads to the other pre-calibration modules only. Reference white must be measured again for calibration and post-calibration. You may always re-measure any of these at any time to update the affected calculations.

Bug Fixes

The 75% of Rec. 709 gamut @ 75% intensity had an error in a couple of the reference colors.

The dE chart in ColorChecker did not clear when clearing all data in the Color Gamut module.

ChromaPure 3.0.5 is now available for download.

This release restores missing features and fixes bugs contained in the initial 3.0 release. It also adds some fixes for long-standing issues that significantly pre-date v3.

The following features have been added, restored, or enhanced:

DVDO Duo support is restored, including auto-cal

RGB and xyY Color Space modes are restored in the Color Management module

User images can be added to Custom Reports

An Application Settings icon has been added to the auto-cal screen

European users no longer have to manually adjust Windows regional format settings. ChromaPure now automatically forces U.S. formats for list seperators and decimal places regardless of the settings in Windows.

ChromaPure now will scale properly on high-resolution, small size displays without user intervention. This is a temporary fix because the application simply automatically adjusts the resolution of the display downwards so that text scaling is not required. This works but results in some loss of sharpness. A permanent solution will be provided in 3.1.

We have added a new item in the File menu called "Repair Settings". Selecting this will close the application, delete the settings file, create a default settings file, and then restart the application. Selecting this option will resolve many issues if instability is apparent.

The following bugs were identified and fixed:

Attempts to take measurements without initializing a meter did not display an error message.

When fL had been selected in the application, the report still showed cd/m2 in the Gamma modules.

Opening the Grayscale module, closing, and then reopening resulted in a benign fatal exception.

If the user failed to click Stop when in continuous mode and navigated to a separate module, continuous mode would still be active. Continuous mode now automatically stops whenever the focus changes from one module to another.

If the user clicked the Measure All button starting anywhere other than white, then the 90% point would measure multiple times.

Reports would not update data if the report module was already open.

A few tooltips were missing.

The Pre and Post-calibration data were switched on the final Advanced Auto-cal page.

Luminance correction was missing from the Contrast module.

ChromaPure 3.0.6 is now available for download.

This small release addresses two issues that were important enough to fix now rather than waiting until 3.1. Please uninstall any previous 3.x version prior to installing 3.0.6.

The method for generating RGB values when using the 75% of Rec. 709 gamut has been changed. This pseudo-gamut can now be used throughout the application.

Some problems were identified and fixed in the Lumagen manual control toolbar.
