[filmscanners] Re: Using NikonScan and Vuescan together (was Films and scanners going together


Thanks for the suggestion. I've just tried this with my Nikon LS4000 -
turning off color management and setting the preview gamma to 1.0 so that
the raw tif file is suitable for Vuescan. Then I used Vuescan to color
process the file, and lo and behold, the final image is better coloured and
sharper than either the Nikon scans (with color management) or Vuescans. All
were done with ICE or IR cleaning on.

Vuescan's IR cleaning seems to soften the images too much, so by this
method, as you say, we get the best of both worlds it seems. It's too good
to be true!!

I've also gone back to Vuescan 7.2.6 . I've tried 7.4 and 7.5 and for my
scanner they seem worse.

Has anyone else tried the combination of scanning software?

Easy solution.  You can do a raw 16 bit (positive) scan to a file in the
Minolta software, using ICE/ROC/GEM if you want.  You can then use
Vuescan to remove the mask and work its usual magic to produce the
final version.

This way, you can have the best of both worlds!
