Re: GamMac: a new Avisynth tool to remove color cast

Neat technique. Looks similar to some of the automatic curves adjustment tools in Photoshop. If so, watch for some odd results in edge cases where the original footage genuinely had little or no information in one or more of the colour channels. Examples would be shots of blue sky over blue water, ...

GamMac: a new Avisynth tool to remove color cast

I noticed that when we split the digital file in R, G and B and then set gamma for each channel the same, the color cast dissapears. This was my basic idea: http://forum.doom9.org/showthread...

Re: Film transfer tutorial

Yes the adverts you are getting is probably because you used a soundtrack that “belonged” to somebody. I have made the soundtrack songs myself, with Magix Music Maker, by mixing individual loops together. Anyhow, there where some mistakes in the text and I have uploaded a new corrected ...

Re: Sneak peek at the new RetroScan Universal

Wow! Great design Roger! Very good acces to the film gate and very easy to change camera position in all directions. Do you transport the film with the take up reels only or are the small guide wheels also powered? A wetgate option would be nice too!

Nearly 50 years Frank! ;) Actualy this film and similar other films have 'triggered' me to start this project, 8 years ago. Looks like you transferred at 16bit and applied g...

You 're welcome ;)

I have mentioned it because some people out there (not the Film9 people, they have always been very correct about this) are using my scripts commercial, pretending they have made it .

Re: The new Muller HDS scanner, what do you think about that

The most interesting feature for me is not the hardware, but their restoration software http://www.filmfabriek.nl/restoration.html It seems to be based on Virtual Dub, as seen in the screenshots. So this puts it in the same league as the Film9 software. I am still working to get my head around that...
