Kodak´s Cineon system of mapping color negative density to 10 bit log files has been the dominate work flow in the film industry which uses, with few exceptions, color negative. In archival work, it is common to work with material that falls outside the range of what is possible to capture with this system and this presentation will cover strategies to capturing color positives, chromogenic, tinted and painted, that have a much higher density range and different color gamut than color negatives. Some of the strategies that will be discussed are high dynamic range scanning, matching the illumination to the dye set and creating lookup tables to get back into the industry work flow in order to accurately reproduce these material in the digital realm.
