I've used a similar approach for the Polaroid SS4K for some time:
producing a raw file from Insight and adjusting it in either Vuescan
or Silverfast. This generally seems to produce a better result than
doing everything in any one of the three programmes, at least for
transparencies.

When you say the recent versions of Vuescan seem worse for the LS4000
what do you mean exactly? Just slower, or are the results visibly
inferior to the earlier versions of Vuescan?
