SilverFast Ai Studio includes all of the well-known functions of SilverFast Ai plus many new, innovative tools. These new functions of SilverFast Ai Studio offer an even higher degree of efficiency for image optimization. Multi-sampling now includes auto-alignment, enabling this feature even on scanners without hardware-based support.
AACO allows the user to extract maximum detail from shadow areas, without compromising highlights. This has become an an invaluable tool, especially when working with scanners offering limited dynamic range. These two tools combined can increase the usable dynamic range of almost any scanner on the market today.
What's New in SilverFast Ai Studio 8.8:
Optimum Addition to iSRD and SRDx
An addition to the existing set of dust, scratch and defect removal tools, the SilverFast Clone-Tool is a powerful tool for the removal of severe defects. SilverFast HDR Studio 8 now features three differently focused tools for the correction of a wide variety of issues, making post-processing in other software unnecessary.
Dust and scratch removal tools, such as iSRD and SRDx, quickly reach their limit in cases of serious defects, such as wide scratches, ﬁnger-prints or large-area damage. These tools are able to detect large defects, but are unfit to correct them. With the Clone-Tool, however, you are now able to easily repair defects by stamping data from similar, undamaged areas onto the damaged areas.
The Clone-Tool complements the iSRD (infrared-based) and SRDx (software-based) workﬂow in the efﬁcient removal of dust, scratches and defects. In addition to the core functionality of correcting defects, it is also possible to use the Clone-Tool to completely change entire image areas by adding or removing details.
The Clone-Tool is ideally suited for …
… removing deep scratches.
… correcting large-area image defects.
… removing or duplicating image details.
Undo Functionality in the Expert Mode
Expert mode provides the ability to undo individual clone operations. An entry is added to the clone protocol for every clone operation. Click on individual entries to reverse the appropriate steps.
Dust and Scratch Removal of a new Generation
Photos, slides and negatives are naturally afflicted with image defects. Even if photos and slides are handled very carefully, it's virtually impossible to avoid contact with dust particles; small scratches are also not uncommon. Greater defects on treasured images can be especially annoying, because they often hide important details or even destroy the overall image. These flaws do not often get recognized until scanning, because scanning means also increasing image size in most cases. SRDx is the most efficient solution for the elimination of all these flaws.
SRDx is ideal for the following image originals
- Black-and-white Film
- Kodachrome Film
- Photo prints
- Digital camera images
Special Tools in Expert Mode
The expert mode (only in Ai Studio, HDR Studio and the Archive Suite) offers additional functionality, which helps to mark the defects to be corrected. With the Marker Tool, the correction intensity of individual image details can be selectively decreased or increased. The Eraser Tool is used to specify image areas, where no correction should be applied at all.
- Marker Tool decreasing and increasing intensity
- Eraser Tool for protecting important image areas
- Mask Tool for limiting correction effects to certain image areas
