with this i would like to start a discussion which i found only very rare in this community, and i need a good advice.
From my point of view, the monitor is the most important piece of hardware an a CG Computer. Tons of Ram, a mighty Titan Graphic Card and a Graphics Tablet do not help, if you actually can not SEE what you are doing.
Over the last projects, i failed a several times because my Monitor was not calibrated well, and a also failed as i started to print my artworks onto real life canvas. If you interchange your works with others, or if you sent you works to a printing service, it can cause disappointing results when there is some wrong with the colors or values that look good on your monitor, but suck on other displays or canvas.
So, here are my questions to start the discussion:
- What do you think it the best Monitor, which is also affordable, say under 500$?
- Does it pay of to switch to a 4K Display? Do i need 4 times the Graphic power in Blender for a 4K Display?
- is there a Blender “Image to real life Canvas” Support to simulate ICC Profiles (Soft Proofing) like in PS or Gimp?
I’m looking forward to your answers!
