Upgrade Profiles missing

Postby ChrisCor » Tue Apr 04, 2006 11:30 pm

I have an old SprintScan 4000 (SCSI) that I recently upgraded from SilverFast version 5.2. to version 6.4.3r9

I have a small number of color negatives (Reala 100) that I have always had problems scanning. I've had to do the bulk of my corrections in PhotoShop to get a usable image. Even then I've never been happy with the images.

Recently I installed version 6.4.3r6b on my Epson 2450 flatbed scanner to scan 21/4 slides.

Frustrated with the quality from the SprintScan I scanned one of my problem images (35 mm) on the Epson. I used NegaFix and the Fuji Reala 100 Profile. I was shocked when the preview image opened. The image looked perfect.

Based on this I downloaded the new version of Silverfast to upgrade my old SprintScan. But after installing it and opening it I can't find I profile for Reala 100. On the Epson it's located under Fuji - Superia - Reala 100.
this profile is missing from the new version I've installed on my Polaroid 4000. How do I install this profile on my Polaroid 4000?

Also, should I expect the image from the SprintScan to match the Epson if the same NegaFix profile is used?

Thanks

Dear ChrisCor

the Negafix profiles are created individually for scanners to get the best results. Thus, you unfortunately cannot make use of the SF-Epson profile with the Polaroid scanner.

However, I shall request an update of the Polaroid Sprintscan 4000 profile list accordingly.
Please note that you can create new profiles for yourself.
The PDF and Ian Lyon's guide will help you to put you on the track:

Hi Sonny,


Thanks for the prompt reply.

My previous version of SilverFast ( 5.2) had a profile for Reala 100. The profile is also listed as one of the available film profiles on your website.

http://www.silverfast.com/show/negafixprofiles/en.html

Obviously because of this I expected to have use of this profile when I upgraded to the new version of SilverFast.

How long will it take to upgrade the profile list?

Best regards

Chris

Sonny,

The profile for Superia 100 is also missing from version 6. Am I wrong to assume that all of the profiles you have listed on your website are included with all versions of the software? If not, you should note which profiles are available with which versions.

Thanks Sonny,

Which profile are you referring to? Profiles for Superia 100 and Reala 100 are missing. I did receive an e-mail that I could find a profile for Reala under Fuji - other - Reala 100, but as a previous poster pointed out "the colors are pretty wacked out!"

http://www.lasersoft.de/forum/viewtopic ... ef64b6118b

I'd have to agree. The profile for Reala under "other" adds a severe red cast to the images. Even the profile for Reala on my old version of Silverfast was better than this.

Thanks

Chris

I guess not. I assumed that the newest update was the one , a month ago, you said would be available now.

Dear Chris

I don't mean to sound irritated, but the r3 still is scheduled to be released in May, as I said. Thanks for your kind understanding and patience.

Have a splendid weekend 8)

Any update on when 6.4.4r3 will be released? It's been more than a month since the last post.

Thanks
Chris

Dear Chris

back from my holiday leave I read that the 6.4.4r3 is going to be released from today onwards in the next couple of days (depending on what plugin one has the version might be on the web today already or pretty soon).

Fine regards
Sonny
