Hi @James , I tested on my MacBook Pro 14 2021 using the same Spiderman Homecoming at 50:27 quoted (that Vincent from HDTVtest reviewed too),
there’s obviously something very wrong with infuse’s “Apple Color Palette”, It’s not the same as Quicktime and there are bug too. I recommend everyone to stay away from Apple Palette until it’s fixed.
Screen recording is not 10 bit so it doesn’t accurately reflect the color issue in real life, but should be enough to get the idea:
The “Apple Palette” seems to looks fine on the 240-1000 nits clipping test, BUT
when you play HDR movie with “apple Palette”, the details & color & contrast looks very wrong,
when you lower the brightness to 0 (MacBook Pro miniled screen will turn off) and crank up the brightness UNTIL 7 out of 16, the “Apple Palette” color looks completely different, it seems better but the brightness is over brightened and more noise than Quicktime too.
and then when you crank the brightness from 7 to 8 out of 16, the “Apple Palette” suddenly darken.
Quicktime playing the same movie looks complete different from “Apple Palette”, very clean & feels like “the color that producer intended”.
Thanks so much for the update! This is exactly what we were all asking for earlier, so its much appreciated. Did want to mention that I can reproduce the bug that @ddadogba pointed out, and the colors seem a bit more saturated/contract like he mentioned compared to quicktime. Even with those slight issues though, I much prefer this palette to what we had before (its very noticeable in a lot of movies I’ve been watching - especially The Dark Knight).
I tested the “Apple palette” again on my Macbook Pro 14 on Mac 12.5 with latest Infuse 7.4.3,
while HDR clipping test pattern looks closed enough to quicktime,
real scene (Spiderman homecoming 50:27) is still way off from what it should be (identical to my post on Feb&April).
