Two scanners and one iMac

Postby Markymark » Sun Nov 05, 2017 9:28 pm

I have recently ordered a Plustek OpticFilm 8200i Ai Film Scanner. Delivery in a week or so. I am currently active on my iMac with an Epson Perfection 850 Pro. Wondering if there is any experience in running multiple scanners with Ai Studio and the best approach to adding the new scanner when it arrives.

Dear user,

Please make sure you install the latest updates for all installed SilverFast versions.
The Welcome screen will then allow you to select which scanner you would like to use.

Kind regards,
Arne

Arne - thank you for your response.

I think I may have over licensed. I did get Ai for both scanners and then got HDR twice (upgraded both to Archive Suite). Based on what I am learning (and have lots to learn) I probably could have just purchased one license of HDR to optimize the output of both/either the Epson Ai and Plustek Ai instead of buying two HDR licenses. Does my logic make sense or is HDR also scanner dependent?

Dear user,

No, the HDR Studio software is not scanner dependant.

Kind regards
Arne
