VLT – The Virtual Light Table


SilverFast HDRSilverFast HDR Studioの新しいバーチャル・ライトテーブル(VLT) は、SilverFast スキャナーソフトへの理想的なリンクとして活躍します。VLTによって、アーカイブ化Workflowは、完璧となります。スキャナーソフトとHDRソフトの共同作業で、SilverFast Archive Suiteの機能を堪能できます。

SilverFast VLTは、スキャンされた画像のための画像データ・ブラウザーである、バーチャルなライトテーブルです。VLTは希望のスキャン作業のステップモードにての画像最適化処理を迅速に実行させ、画像を選択するための一覧表示の機能も備えています。カスタマイズされたプレビュー機能と、画像評価と画像チェック機能で、この手順も簡単に行えます。

Archiving Workflow with SilverFast Archive Suite
  • 1. Batch Scanning into HDRi or DNG RAW data format
  • 2. Using VLT to select images for optimization
  • 3. Batch processing of image optimizations
1. Batch Scanning into HDRi or DNG RAW data format
The Archive Suite Workflow is designed initially scan all images and to do the image optimization afterwards. Depending on scanner model and the material to digitize, SilverFast's important tools iSRD and Multi-Exposure may be used therefore. Thus, all image data which is detectable at all, will be captured. An IT8 calibration in advance is recommended. Following a "non destructive workflow", image files should be saved in RAW data format HDRi or DNG. For efficiency, SilverFast's batch scanning capabilities may come in handy. Some scanners are able to automatically digitize whole magazines of slides and negatives. Batch scanning is also available for photos by scanning multiple photos simultaneously from the flatbed. After this first step, all image data is now safely stored on the hard disk.

2. Using VLT to select images for optimization
For image optimization, SilverFast HDR (Studio) is the software. Therefore, the VLT tool is perfect for sorting and selecting images, just like a real light table for mounted slides or film strips. Disk directories are easily imported using a navigation tool. An overview area shows small thumbnails of the images contained in the selected directory. There also is a zoom functionality to quickly view an image in detail. For categorization, color marks and ratings can be added to each image. Using drag&drop, those images chosen for optimization are added to the JobManager.

3. Batch processing of image optimizations
All images will now be listed in the JobManager dialog window as single job entries. Each job can be optimized as needed with the known SilverFast tools. However, the JobManager's great strength is to easily copy tool settings from one job to many others. After all settings have been adjusted, the batch processing of all jobs can be started. SilverFast performs the image optimization and saves the new image files to the hard disk.
