Sorry, I have been out of pocket.
I believe that Vuescan uses a different method than
FilmGet. IMHO, FARE still does a better job at dust removal than Vuescan.
In short I agree with you that Vuescan bypasses FARE.
You are also correct in that I can choose either tool to scan with.
: Interested in your exchange with George via SCSI and your mention of VueScan. Please post your observations when you've had a chance to compare it to FilmGet. I am interested to know whether VueScan accesses the FARE dust-removal technology, or bypasses it.
: As others on this forum have mentioned, FilmGet's ability to manipulate color balance, brightness, etc. prior to the scan is limited, and VueScan appears to address these issues.
: Of course, there should be no barrier to having both on your drive and using the appropriate tool as the need arises.
