IMHO Vuescan is more the Porsche - it's settings are much more difficult to
master. But, like the Porsche, once you do understand it, it will do
exactly what you ask of it.
We discuss it because we use it and it is complex, yet when set properly
makes the workflow much smoother, faster and yet more accurate. Believe me
when I say we do appreciate its shortcomings, and we also respect and use
both Silverfast and the various manufacturers' software.
Just my opinion.

Subject: filmscanners: film scanner software
| About software and film scanner
| I cant understand why people are discussion a software like VueScan so
| in this group. .If you are trying to learn how to scan a picture from
| negative or slides the only good software in my opinions are
| ( and some thimes the shipping manufactories software to your scanner.) If
| you are looking after a good automatic calculating software try Binuscan.
| If I order a Porsche I take it with manual stick handling, not automatic
| try to learn how I can get the best out of the car. It seems that loot of
| people are to lazy to learn the basic rolls of film scanning and think
| VueScan are something they can relay on.
| VueScan are (also in my opinion for beginners) but if you are concern to
| learn how to scan pictures try a "pro software" and see who much more
| you can get out from your negative or slides.
