I have a 14 year old K-M Scan Dual IV, which has been more or less working fine for all of those years. I used the stock scanning software until my old media PC died, and then switched to Vuescan since it runs on Windows 7.
It's worked more or less fine until this morning. I've scanned negatives and slides with it and it's been more or less foolproof.
However, this morning (I'm off today) I'm trying to scan my first roll of the new Ektachrome 100, which I processed last night. Since I don't project slides, I'm trying to scan the unmounted transparency film using the 6-frame carrier normally used for negatives. I set the media to "Slide Film" on the Input tab as in the screen shot below.
I'm having two issues:
1. No matter what I try, it insists on scanning as a NEGATIVE to the .tiff file! If I use Gimp and invert the colors they look more or less normal, but I would think it would be better to scan as a positive. When I open up the Color tab as shown in the second screenshot below, it gives me options for film brand and type and such, but no matter what I try I can't seem to coax it into any transparency film type and I think that has something to do with my issue.
2. On the Input tab I have Number Of Samples set to 2 and Multi Exposure checked. For frame 2, it behaves as expected, and does two separate passes as shown (as pass 2) in the screenshot, but for some reason on frame 1 it only does one pass.
I know we have some Vuescan jocks on here, and hopefully somebody knows what is going on.
Anyone see anything wrong that I may be doing?
Thanks in advance, gang!
