Re: filmscanners: Image alignment/registration

Shaf: I think that what the question intended is the same holy grail I am in
puruit of... that of being able to make TWO or more EXPOSURES at the time the
picture is created... in the camera... one shot for shadow, one for mid tones,
one for highlights, all without moving the camera... then making scans of each
exposure, and then combining these three in Photoshop... I have an article on
this technique that I have misplaced, but I know it is possible.. I have also
seen the section of Caponigro's book, which I highly recommend... and he
specifically takes you step by step through his creation of a long tonal range
color landscape of Death Valley.... so the question is... How do you
accurately register multiple scans of different negs of the same subject?
