Re: filmscanners: Silverfast and LS1000
I bet you're right, and this explains the wide divergence of
view here on Scanwit multiscanning accuracy which we've
discussed at least twice over the last year or so.
If using Herm's subtraction method to identify
discrepancies, the experiment to do is to compare several
different single pass images with a single multipass
composite. The smallest differences found would be the
nearest to the errors introduced by multiscanning, but this
still might exaggerate them, unless one of the single-pass
images happened to start in the same place on the frame as
the multipass one.
Does this make sense?
