Image Processing/IR Masks/Neg Conversion etc

Automated white balance, and conversion from Interpositive or Negative stocks is also an issue that would need to be addressed. Kaliscope addresses some of these already

Also of interest, a good document outlining the math behind a decent conversion from negative stock.


I stumbled on the Kaliscope project recently. Really interesting stuff. I need to look into their github a little more closely. The OFX plugin software stuff is really powerful.

This article on negative conversion is EXACTLY what I’ve been looking for. Thanks so much for this.

Is anyone successfully transferring negative film stocks with their builds?

This seemed like a very difficult challenge to do well about 10 years ago when I first started looking at DIY telecine.

I’ve only ever shot reversal for this reason, but wouldn’t mind buying some Vision 50D Super 8 film if I thought I’d be able to do a decent transfer on it at home.
