Re: filmscanners: VueScan clipping & flat images

That vuescan text (below) states that the black point determination uses the 
histogram of each color -- three histograms.  Might the combination of color 
balance / neutral and black point computation result in one or two color 
channels with pixels below the calculated (luminance) black point?  In what 
software/tool is the histogram being viewed?  

In Photoshop a calculated luminosity histogram is displayed by Image->Histogram 
while the logical-or overlay of the three channels is displayed by the RGB 
channel in the levels dialog box.  For Image->Histogram be sure that the 
histogram box shows cache level 1, which can be obtained by Shift+Image-> 
Histogram selection if preferences setting calls for using cache for histograms.
