filmscanners: Sprintscan/Vuescan/Negs


Brand new member to the list here.  Y'all seem neat & smart and all that...

I'm having a bit of a problem with my SS4000 and Vuescan and negatives that
I'm hoping someone can help with.  I've been on enough lists to know that my
question has probably been asked & answered 100 times, but... :)

I normally shoot RDPIII and scan with the hardware/software above, and have
been very happy with the combination.  Great color, saturation, contrast,

Yesterday I was experimenting with fill flash (still haven't gotten it
completely down yet) and decided to go w/neg film for it's extra latitude.
Kodak Royal Gold 100, to be exact.  A bit contrasty, but I like it.

The scans coming out of the SS and Vuescan are horrible!  Extremely cyan,
dark and flat.  I've tried tweaking just about every setting in Vuescan to
no avail.  I can, for the most part, correct the final scans in Photoshop,
but am thinking that I'd be better off starting with a scan that was much
closer to what it's supposed to be.

Thinking initially that this was a hardware problem (burned out or weak
lamp), I tried one of my standard RDP trannies and the results were as good
as ever.  This eliminated the hardware issue...

Is this a common problem?  I can scan negs on the Scan Dual II and the
dreaded ES-10S and have decent output, but the SS (which is the best scanner
I've used to date) seems to almost ignore the neg masking.

Any ideas or <do this, you silly guy> comments?
