Re: Scanner Profiles and Negafix

Hi Arne, Could you please expand on this? I have often wondered why IT8 profiling is not considered when scanning negs. Let's say my aging scanner is loosing sensitivity in the red channel. This is very obvious visually when scanning a positive image, and an IT8 calibration will compensate for this ...

Re: Thumbnails in VLT incorrect colour

Thanks Arne. This example is a neg scanned in SF Ai as 64-bit HRDi , and then displayed in SF HDR's VLT as-is, with no processing applied other than negafix. I would be interested to know how the thumbnail is generated, if not with the negafix profile selected during initial scan? I am interested be...

Thumbnails in VLT incorrect colour

Hi, When using SF HDR 8 I am finding that frequently the colour of the displayed thumbnail differs from the image preview above the thumbnail display area, see attachment for an example of a HDRi RAW scanned image from a film neg. Could someone please explain why the thumbnail colour is different to...

Re: Saving Frame dimensions/position -only-, not frame setti

Thanks Arne. What is the best way to clear all settings? "Delete All" in the Frame menu appears to do this, but this may be a quirk of the bug and this action may change when the bug is fixed. When I "Reset frame" in the Frame menu, I thought this would reset all frame settings t...

Saving Frame dimensions/position -only-, not frame settings

Hi, I have made a series of RAW 35mm neg scans in SF for archival purposes in DNG format. Each file is a scan of the entire scanning area, so there is "garbage" present around the exposed film area itself. Each scanned frame has had the correct NegaFix profile assigned to them during the s...

Re: sf 8 settings dock

I agree, I was caught out with this too and couldn't figure out how to re-dock it and had to leave it floating for a long time until I accidentally double-clicked the drag bar one day and it re-docked. A little re-docking arrow in the drag bar might help perhaps?

Re: Negafix and cross-processed films

I can confirm that there is no sound when the movies are viewed in Firefox on both OS X and Windows, both of which are using the Apple QT plugin v7.7.8. This is probably because the audio is using an obscure audio compression format (ima4) that this plugin does not handle. The audio works fine in Sa...

Re: In HDR, Difference between Settings vs FrameSet vs Job

I am also looking for detailed clarification between these different types of save/loads. For example, LSI_Ketelhohn said that the frame set saves the size and location of a set of frames but not the settings. But this is not entirely true as I see various settings saved along with frame location/si...

Filename tooltip shows wrong filename during scan

In SF (Plustek 8.5.0r8, OS X 10.10), in the Scanner Status area, there is a text field that displays the path/filename for the image currently being scanned. This is always cut off as the path/filename is too long to be displayed in the limited width of the Scanner Status area. But this is not a big...

Preview of iSRD corrections of entire frame

Hi LSI, I am scanning negs at roughly 5000x3500 resolution. When previewing iSRD correction later in HDR Studio, I must use either 1:1 or HQ preview modes. As I understand it, this zooms in the image so that each screen pixel corresponds to each source image pixel 1-to-1 i.e. magnification is 100%, ...

Archiving Negs/Slides and IT8 Calibration

Hi LSI, I plan to archive a largish collection of negs/slides in SF 8.5 for later rework/output in the HDR app. My question is about IT8 calibration of my scanner. Where in the workflow should this take place? In the SF scanning app or HDR app? My understanding of the HDi RAW mode is that raw data f...

iOS JobMonitor App does not find Silverfast on Mac

I have just upgraded my OS X (V10.10.3) SilverFast and HDR apps to 8.5.0r4. The e-mail I received about this update also told me about the iOS JobManager App, which I have also installed on my iPad (iOS 8.3). However, when I start the app, it tells me it is searching for Active SilverFast software, ...
