X-Rite Color Assist for Legion 5 Pro

2021-04-29, 13:32 PM

Hello.. I got the Legion 5 Pro.. As soon as I got it I swap the NVMe drives from my Y540 so i don't have to move everything.. I removed every old driver and installed any missing drivers... Now I was smart enough to copy the color calibrated profiles for the display and after a day of straggling I managed to make them work correctly on the display... Do i need the X-Rite Color Assist or it doesn't matter now that I got the profiles working..? Thank you..!!

Hello @mikekir97,

 

Thanks for reaching out.

 

Pretty sure you should be good since you've already copied the profiles and have confirmed it to be working well for you.

Would you also mind sharing the process you've done to get imported color profiles to work on your machine?

 

I'm sure other members will find that useful.

 

Regards,

Jack_Lenovo1

Thank you for your reply..!! I am more than happy to share what worked for me.. I found this information online after a lot of searching..

 

So before you format or put your old hard drive in my case to a new machine make sure you copy the "color" folder located under "C:/Windows/system32/spool/drivers/color". Paste the entire folder to a usb flash disk or an external hard disk.. its very small in size..

After that when you have finish your windows installation, plug in the drive you copied the "color" folder earlier..

Inside there should be the color calibrated profiles for your display with the file type extension of ".icc" or ".icm" just double click to install.. after installation I followed the instructions in the two videos from YouTube below and it did work perfectly.. now I can switch color profiles from Windows 10 Display Settings..

I hope this helps..:)

The .icm profiles from my Legion 5 Pro can be found in the link below.. They should work on any Legion 5 Pro display but they may not be as accurate because it is a different physical display than mine..

 

Link to .icm profiles

Hello.. the display from factory only covers 100% of sRGB.. I do not believe it will be better without actually color correcting and further calibration..

So color correction for dci-p3 can be done via software methods right? I saw dci-p3, Adobe rgb profile in the xrite app of legion 5 pro in a YouTube video

Most likely you will need some hardware to correctly calibrate the specific display on your laptop.. even if you find online the color profile someone created for there machine it will most likely not be correct on your laptop due to minor variations between display panels..

Hi @mikekir97 / Lenovo support,

 

A noob (when it comes to color space) here. I just received my Legion 5 pro, and would like to understand if I'm doing all right.

 

My X-Rite Color Assistant's version is 2.12.0, and I see following profiles in its drop down list:

  • Default
  • sRGB
  • Rec. 709
  • Not Calibrated

When I opened X-Rite Assistant for the very first time, none of the above profiles were selected, so I went with Default profile. As per the description, Default profile is same as sRGB but with maximum brightness (of course I lowered its brightness to 50% under normal circumstances).

 

Note that "Not Calibrated" profile gives a Yellow tint which I'm not a big fan of. Default/sRGB are much more pleasing for normal usage in my opinion.

 

Question is, are Default or sRGB profiles good enough for normal purposes like browsing, videos, gaming and office use? I mean, sure, it depends on my taste and what looks better practically, but based on your experience, am I doing okay with these settings? Or is there something that you would like to suggest that would improve my display even further?

 

Thanks for you time and really appreciate it if you could let me know on this.

 

Additionally, as seen in the attached file, I see 2 other profiles in the "color" folder (which were not seen in X-Rite app). How do I add these to X-Rite Assistant? I mean, can I just double-click and add them? Will wait for your response before I do anything crazy, lol.

Legion 5 Pro has very warm and yellow display. I installed X-Rite Color Assistant and applied Default color profile which is much better because not so yellow. But still i would like to have more "cold" display temperature. Can I get and import more profiles to X-Rite somehow or I have to make my own calibration in Windows manually?
