RE: filmscanners: VueScan clipping & flat images



The clipping is worse, as I would expect, if I use anything above zero for
the white point and black point % setting.

For what it's worth, if I change Media Type from Image to Slide and then go
to Color tab and change Generic to Koday and type to E6, the clipping seems
to be significantly reduced. However, the scan is flatter and the colors
have more of a yellow cast.

By the way, I am using Koday Elite Extra Color EBX for these tests.

The following is taken from VueScan's help file.  It seems to me that B&W
points of 0% should leave all of the pixels in the scan.  (Having said that,
when looking at a histogram, it does seem that some pixels either go beyond
the black point or there are a mumber of pixels _at_ the black point.)

It seems to me that setting B/W to 0% results in what Jawed is calling a
flat image.  Jawed (if you're reading this!) does a histogram of one of your
flat VueScan images extend all, or most of the way, from 0 to 255?  I find
with my flat VueScan mages that do not range across the histogram but leave,
particularly at the white point end, a lot of unused values.  If that is the
case with your images I wonder if you would try to increase the white point
to 0.05 or 0.1 and see what that does to the image.  I would be interested
in your results compared to Nikonscan especially if you set the white point
to _just_ fill the histogram.

Black point (%)
The black point is used by the color balance algorithm and is computed by
using the histogram of each color in the image. Use this option to leave the
black point at the minimum intensity (0%), or to choose the black point such
that some percentage of the pixels in the image are below the black point.

White point (%)
The white point is used by the color balance algorithm and is computed by
using the histogram of each color in the image. Use this option to leave the
white point at the maximum intensity (0%), or to choose the white point such
that some percentage of the pixels in the image are above the white point.
