Re: Vuescan vs. Nikon Scan (was: filmscanners: Vuescan question)
Hi, related with the analog gains I would appreciate any enlightenment
about the following:
(my system is an LS2000+NikonScan 3.1)
1. after getting a preview, why does the GREEN histogram change when I
modify the RED gain (after pressing "redraw")? Before even buying an
scanner I always thought that there were some granted basic facts, like
that the three light sources are independent of each other. Under this
conditions gets difficult to tune each channel histogram independently
(I do not care about color balance, I'm trying to understand how
NikonScan drives the hardware underneath).
2. is the selected cropping area of the preview used to compute anything
before the final scanning? In NikonScan at least the preview histograms
reflects changes in the cropping area, but I'm not sure about the final
3. does VueScan behaves the same way as NikonScan in relation with
points 1 and 2 above?
Thanks in advance,
