    I received my THX blue glasses the other day (very fast turnaround :clap: ), has anyone else tried this? Using my Domino 20 I cannot seem to get the thick blue line as indicated on the THX optimizer. I can almost get everything the same colour, but I tend to still be able to see three horizontal lines.

    Can anyone else share their findings?

    Ian.

    Buns,

    Yes, they are used for Colour and Tint.

    Come on, I cannot believe that no one else has used these :eek:

    Couple of things mean it is very unlikely you will get totally uniform matching bars.

    No filter is perfect first of all especially a two bit acetate gel based one. Blue is used as blue filters tedn o be a little more accurate than red or green ones.

    Any innacuracies in the grayscale will also make the colour match more unlikely.

    The blue filter test is really just to aim for as close a match as possible.

    I have used the THX glasses, but don't remember any blue lines only the word color repeated over and over. I seemed to be able to get the pattern to work well, but I have not tried with my new Z2, as I can't find the damn filter specs!

    They all work on the same principal.
