High-bit-depth and HDR scanning

In this movie, I'd like to discuss the topic of HiBit Depth Scanning. We are really not going to be working on any images here because it's not necessary. I just want to address one part of the interface and that's this little icon right here. We've been working in here throughout the course but we've pretty much been working in the top half of this. HiBit Depth Scanning means capturing an image at a high capture bit depth. For instance, let's talk about what we've done so far, and then talk about what we could do with the options in terms of bit depth.

When we captured our 1 bit black and white line art image and we convert it to vectors, we chose this bit depth: 16 -> 1 Bit. What this means is that SilverFast captures in 16 bits per pixel of grayscale, but delivers us 1 bit that is 1 bit black-and-white. In the continuous tone grayscale image, or in the detail line art image, we captured 16 bits of grayscale, but when we got done editing it in our applica...
