Scratches and dirt

  • If film was frequently used, not treaded with best care or run on not well maintained equipment, it might be scratched and dusty from abrasions
  • The optional IR camera allows Scanity to ‘see‘ the scratches and dirt and generate a dirt matte
  • This dirt image can be put in the DPX file within the alpha channel in addition to the RGB channels
  • Furthermore the internal processing can correct for small scratches and dirt during scanning, on the fly, without slowing down the scanning speed
