Vuescan 8.5.07 miscounts negatives and muffs offsets with Nikon LS-50


P

paulbeard

I have been trying to scan some B&W negative strips and for some
reason Vuescan is unable to start the scan at the right place, which
screws up the offset for the whole strip, and it somehow counts 6
images when there are only 5. These are not thin or marginal negs. Ed
Hamrick and I have been around this one but we're not able to
communicate very well on this one.


Here's what I sent for my problem report, minus a zipped logfile and
sample image.

• A brief description of the problem
I get no previews on scans and the scans are incorrectly offset. I
can't address the offset w/o a preview.

• Things you've already tried to solve the problem
Trashed all preferences. Removed power from all components. tested w/
Nikon software (it works fine).

• Make sure you attach vuescan.log, preferably zipped

• Make sure you attach the exact procedure used to produce
vuescan.log, and make sure this procedure is comprehensive, detailed,
and is the simplest procedure needed to duplicate the problem

Power on scanner. launch VueScan, reset all options to defaults,
insert film, request preview, get
nothing after the usual sounds and motions from the scanner, request
blind scan, get the attached result (that is the first frame on the
strip).
