I’ve seen different recommendations for settings for SilverFast with dust removal.
is 48-bit tiff at gamma 1.0 linear (L* Gradation) currently the recommended format?
do I need to run the Tiff Scan Prep tool with these? my tests seem to indicate the prep tool is not necessary, but the Guide states that the prep tool is required when the tiffs are saved with a gamma of 1.
I’ve tested with (a) HDR raw tiff, (b) 48-bit tiff g1.0 and (c ) 48-bit tiff g2.2
48-bit tiff g2.2 seems to produce greenish results in NLP.
HDR raw tiff and 48-bit tiff g2.2 produce the same (better) results in NLP.
I also get greenish results if I turn the scanner’s lamps up between 200 and 300 (with the intent of keeping as much of the scanned spectrum as possible within the histogram).
when exporting to HDR raw, we can choose between tif and dng. does it make a difference?
