Automatic pre-scan of film straps

Postby HolgerS » Tue May 09, 2017 7:47 pm

Hi all.

I would like to suggest a function that enables an automated pre-scans for film and negative scanners like the Reflecta RPS 10M.
After adding a complete strap of film to the job manager, one has to pre-scan every picture separately, before one can apply the special settings to the single frame inside the job manager. Unfortunately, this take a lot of time. To prepare a normal 135/36 film means about 1h to 1,5h of work while the required adjustments would only take 30sec. per picture. Most of the time is wasted by useless waiting for the next picture to be pre-scanned.
Therefore, I would like to see a function inside the job manager, that automatically pre-scanns a whole strap of film, so the adjustments might be done at a stretch afterwards and can be done in 15 to 20 minutes.

Thank you in advance
Holger

Dear Holger,

currently this unfortunately is not possible yet.
But this option s planned to be included in a future version of SilverFast.

Kind regards,
Arne

Thank you for your reply.
Is there a planned schedule for a version that will include this feature and make the job manager completely usable for film strap scanning?

Best regards
Holger

Hello, I'm interested in the same feature! Now I have to wait for complete prescan precess, and I waste a lot of time, during prescan: I can't make adjustments on pictures already pre-scanned.

Thanks!
