[filmscanners] Re: Need some tips on Vuescan



I don't have a model 4000, and it is some time since I scanned B/W on my
LS-30, so maybe this won't help much, but here goes:


> 1/ The preview looks like hell.... bears no resemblance to the actual
pic

Set preview resolution to something like 500 dpi.

Then try this: Preview, select "Lock exposure", preview again. The point
is that the first (unlocked) preview is done at exposure = 1; proper
exposure is computed from this (sometimes quite ugly) preview-scan. By
locking exposure, the second preview will be done at the same exposure
as will be used for the actual scan.

To avoid auto-focusing twice, you can set focusing to Manual. You then
just do a manual auto-focus (by pressing Ctrl-U as it says in the menu)
before the first preview.

For each new frame you want to scan, remember to first deselect "Lock
exposure".

> Device Bits - 48 RGB

That's ok.

> Saved as 48Bit Tiff file....

No, don't save as 48 bit RGB; save as 16 bit Gray.
