Scanning negatives or scanning paper... this is the question

Film Discussion and Q & A - www.thephotoforum.com
Hi,

very short question but probably very not-so-simple question.

Is better to scan analog negatives or better to scan post-enlarger printing?

In my opinion the result starting from printed paper is very very better, for some reason negative scanning in quite troubleful and the result is not so good.

The point is that often i dont' want to waste paper and time, and I'd prefer to get a digital version directly for the negative...

Maybe is there a technique (or photoshop processing...) that allows you to post-produce a scanned negative and get a result similar to a printed one?

Thanks a lot!
