My expert settings look something like this now
Hi, I wanted to inform you that you are loosing a lot of time using any filter, its really a waste of time, CMS Calibration is not possible by only looking build in filters or by any type of $1 filter that is coming with disks or by photographic use quality and more expensive ones (Rosco E-Colour Tokyo Blue #071
or Lee Sheet Colour Filter #071
Tokyo or Kodak Deep Blue Tricolor #47B
Blue Filter Glasses are useless for displays other than CRT.
Blue filters used before 10-15 years mainly for CRT Displays where only Color/Tint controls were available for CMS; the calibration software/meter access were so limited and so expensive.....now in 2017 you can get an amazing for the performance colorimeter like X-Rite's i1Display PRO and by using an open source software for free (like HCFR or LightSpace DPS), there is no reason to use any blue filter anymore.
Now most of the displays are coming with 6-Axis CMS controls.
Blue filters (on CRT) can work where for example the Red Primary is fully saturated and have no blue or green...blue primary has no green or red etc....But a fully saturated Primary needs to have the other 2 primaries added to be able to de-saturated it to it's target....so viewing thru the blue filter you will have light coming from all three primaries and this will make it's blue filter purpose of matching the luminance method no longer work.
When you have meter/software and have performed a color gamut calibration will full CMS internal controls or via external way using a 3D LUT Box like eeColor, look throu the blue filter....you will see that it will look so bad; so a very wide native gamut coverage display it will look very off when you target for REC.709 and look throu bars because the more de-saturation will be needed to the colors to match REC.709. Blue filters designed to work for display that their primaries are tracking REC.709, now all modern displays have wider gamut coverage from REC.709, this is another one reason that Blue Filter is not worth it to use nowadays.
For CMS calibration you need software/meter, can't do it by looking any reference pattern or any special mode or any filter.
By using only a Calibration Disk you can't set your peak light output, perform RGB Balance of your grayscale, calibrate your Primary/Secondary Colors (Hue/Saturation/Lightness), fix your gamma levels etc. for REC.709, to do all these you will need meter/software.
If you don't have plans to invest for a X-Rite i1Display PRO
colorimeter, use the ISF-Night/Movie or Cinema mode, disable any enhancement, display a grayscale ramp and swap between the available color temp options until you select the one that looks more neutral to your eyes and then check/adjust Contrast/Brightness/Sharpness Color Clipping etc.
I have posted what you can do with a calibration disk (or any kind of calibration disk, don't specifically for Ted's) here: What is the best calibration disc???
