P3D scenery rendition /SOLVED (on my system)

Post by jackpilot »

In a nutshell even with Orbx Global I find that the outside scenery is pale as opposed to vivid colors, no real green in summer, like an overcast day even if I use no clouds at all

Not a matter of TV vs Projector, my Optoma image is sharp but I am pretty sure the projector can deliver more colorwise.

I tried the Optoma 1080 settings to no real avail
The advanced tab should be helpful but I'm lost with the settings
Tried also the P3D settings, same comment. even with infinite visibility

Pretty sure I miss something and help from more experienced users would be appreciated.

Jack ,

I would try these settings:

DISPLAY MODE: Vivid
GAMMA: Graphics
BRILLIANT COLOR: 10
COLOR TEMP: Standard

Do NOT manually increase the brightness settings, it will just wash-out
the image further.

Reducing brightness improved things for sure, all other settings you suggested applied.
Better but still not up to what it should be

Would it be a good idea to restore factory settings (optoma) first because I played with the advanced settings being a "non advanced" user. :wink:

Problem solved (for my setup anyway)

For the Optoma:


As Nat recommended:
Display mode Vivid
Gamma: Graphics
Brilliant color :10
Color temp: Standard
Brightness mid scale
Contrast max

For P3D

Goto Options
General
Lighting
Brightness 1.08
Bloom 0
Saturation 1.42

Bright Blue Sky
Green Grass and vegetation
Black blacks, red reds etc.

What a difference!
