    Does anyone know if the Eye-One Display monitor calibrating software works with Snow Leopard? It's pretty important for my graphics stuff and I just realized I didn't check before installing SL (it's installing right now)

    Thanks.

    The i1Match software will run in Rosetta, but the USB display2 sensor that I have does not show as connected.

    So it doesn't run.

    I already have an email into XRite about it, asking for a possible date for an Intel-compatible release. I recommend everyone else do the same.

    I want to let everyone know that My Eye One display 2 works perfectly fine in SL. IT might be running unde Rosetta but it works fine.

    Yes and No

    Mine runs and says it is saving the profile but on every restart the reminder comes on screen and states that no profile could be found.

    Just like Andy, my Match-3 software runs fine, but it won't recognize the hardware device

    Does X-Rite know about this problem yet?

    I got a generic response from the Grand Rapids support team - "Snow Leopard just came out on Friday and it will take our team some time to ensure compatibility blah blah."

    To which I would comment (if I were so inclined) that Snow Leopard was out on the Apple Developer Connection as of July of last year, and there have been stable builds out for some time -- so it's not like this release would have come as a great shock or anything. That is, if developing for Apple is anything like a priority for X-rite.

    Wonder how long it took them to get "Vista-ready." {shrug}

    Mine is working but I did have to install Rosetta for it , my only program that needed it. Once i was loaded i clicked on the icon and told me it needed Rosetta and went out and got it and installed . I am Calibrated now and you really need too after the gamma change

    This is the one app that is stopping me from upgrading my machines. I've upgraded my MBP ( which calibrates poorly anyway ) but I can't upgrade my MacPro until this software is fixed as I need a calibrated display.

    Which pretty much reinforces my point about their development team and speed to market. Match 3.6.2 isn't even a universal binary, fer cryin' out loud. And they're going to whine about SL being too fast to market for their development team to keep up?

    Guess I expected a little more from them for the premium involved.

    I'm thinking about getting a Colormunki in place of my i1 Display 2...I have a recent calibration still stored on my machine (thankfully, because SL looks like crap without it...blown-out colors is being nice), but I don't want to do much serious editing without a current profile :(

    This is the response i got from them.

    Hi Brad,

    I’ve reviewed your recent request for support.



    I1Match 3.6.2 will work correctly with Snow Leopard.

    I would recommend that you delete your current version, download a fresh version from our website, then reinstall.

    http://www.xrite.com/product_overview.aspx?ID=758&Action=support&SoftwareID=724



    When you have finished the installation, now please rebuild your disk permissions with Apple’s Disk Utility.



    That will restore the program for use with Snow Leopard.

    Anyone willing to try this method?
    Brad

    Great. Now i have to wait for Nikon to fix Transfer NX and View NX. They admit they don't work. Visions of my old Windows days.

    So do you have to have rosetta installed to use the software? That sucks as I didn't want to install it.

    Can anyone confirm that it works (albeit under Rosetta) with the kernel running in 64-bit mode and not the default 32-bit mode?

    Different "corrected" color on MBP and iMac - huh??

    My first post here ... Thanks to Brad(millerb1) and others for ferreting out how to get Eye One Match running on Snow Leopard. I too was able to complete calibrations on both my MBP 17" 2.33Ghz and iMac 24" 3.06Ghz macs after reinstalling the software.

    BUT ... they now have significantly different color balances. The gray desktop on the MBP is significantly warmer than the same gray on the iMac.

    This flies in the face of what I thought it meant to color calibrate a screen to a common white reference color.

    Does anyone have any insight into this problem? Have I missed a setting somewhere, or is the iMac screen uncalibratable, or is the Eye One Match software not up to the task? Any help would be much appreciated.

    Brad, thanks, but both monitors (MBP-17 and iMac-24) are set to same gamma (2.2) and both monitors are calibrated the same way, with the same h/w and s/w (Eye One), to the same white reference chip.

    I'm suspecting that Eye One Match (v3.6.2) is simply not up to the task of seeing the full spectrum of light from either or both of these monitors and then gives erroneous profiles as a result.

    Or maybe the Apple monitors aren't as tightly bound to their color profiles as we might assume. Is it possible that only certain of Apple's monitors are calibratable, and others not (like the iMac's)?

    Can anyone comment on this?

    Calibration Problem

    Hey,

    I have been trying to calibrate my MBP (Early 2008) that runs on Snow Leopard. I have no problem with the hardware recognition, and with the software running.

    However, I do have problem with the profile that is generated. It seems when I preview the calibrated profile in the Match 3 software, the colors are perfectly good, but when I actually saved it on disk, Snow Leopard seems to interpret the profile wrong.

    I recorded the weird phenomenon in the 2 videos below:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3vGfuKY9wxw
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=clf1Hak_vCs



    Is there any difference between Leopard and Snow Leopard, in how they read the ICC profile and apply them to the system color? Anyone?

    Thanks,
