Working with Thomas Madden, former Senior Principal Scientist at Eastman Kodak, we researched the best way fashionable digital digicam sensors reply when used to scan movie. We wished to know if it will be theoretically potential to attain good shade accuracy with out utilizing a sensor particularly developed for movie scanning. The preliminary outcomes had been promising, so we spent the following 9 months creating a prototype that would take the uncooked values captured by digicam sensors and convert them to correct measurements of movie dye density. We used the outcomes to generate digital pictures and in contrast them to precise prints made out of the identical negatives utilizing the chemical RA4 course of. The outcomes had been extraordinarily comparable, and it was thrilling to see that our course of was capable of precisely reproduce the habits of analog supplies! Lastly, we applied the algorithms in shader code so they may run on GPUs. For a small firm like ours this was a giant funding in R&D. We’re glad it paid off!” – Abe Fettig, founding father of Develop + Repair
