ArtixScan F1 faster

Postby Smythy » Tue Jul 10, 2012 1:52 am

Hi all,

I've just recently bought an ArtixScan F1 for work. We've been using in on Mac OSX 10.6 and using SilverFast Ai 6.6. As others have noticed the initialising phase before a scan takes a considerable about of time. I'm looking for a way to reduce the amount of time the initialising phase takes. At the moment I have turned autofocus off and that has brought the total time in a batch scan down to a bit over 1 minute per image.

Any tips to get this time down would be much appreciated.

Dear Smithy,

SilverFast 8 is available for this scanner.
Please download and install the demo version and try it out to see the behavior in batch scan.

Best regards
Artur Möller
