So I just started using NLP this week - loving it so far! I just wanted to ask what the best method and workflow is for Flextight scans.
Here’s what I do:
- Scan negatives as 3F format.
- Rename files from .fff to .tif
- Import to Lightroom and use Tiff Prep option (using Flextight MAC).
- Convert negatives without any form of cropping or white balancing
Is this the correct way or am I missing out on something? The colors are usually pretty good, but always in need of some tweaking. I’ve seen some conversions which look really nice with basically one click conversions.
This made me wonder if there is a way to convert with better accuracy. I read that you can leave some of the orange mask in before converting, but what about the completely blank areas outside of the actual film area? Will that throw off the color analysis?
