Use of Windows default monitor profile within FPV

Postby rudike on Mon Mar 23, 2009 10:24 pm

I do use FPV with the color management option including a monitor profile. So far there is only the option to specify a .icc file directly.

How about adding an option to use the Windows default monitor profile (in Vista this is possible, not sure about XP).
I find this useful since for changing the monitor profile (re-calibration or different white point ...) updating the color management settings of Windows is sufficient and no need to do this in each application individually.

Best regards,

Lookup of the default monitor profile instead of manual selection was actually planed some time ago. Of course it's not as trivial as it might sound, for example the multi-monitor cases should be handled properly, and one can start the program on one monitor then drag it to another other one, or the default profile can be changed in Windows while the program is running. Ideally FPV has to track all that and swap the color profile / reload all images when one such event occurs...
