Re: Silverfast 8 / Nikon SF210 Feeders

When doing a batch scan, all processing completes before the scanner loads the next slide and starts a scan. It would be much faster if once the scan of slide 1 is finished, the scan of slide 2 is started. The processing for slide 1 can continue while slide 2 is scanning. Is this planned?
Thanks!

Re: Silverfast 8 / Nikon SF210 Feeders

Found it! I removed and re-inserted the SF-210 and the eject button appeared!

Re: Silverfast 8 / Nikon SF210 Feeders

I'm having trouble locating the "eject" button in the software. I'm trying to load the first slide from the SF-210 so I can do a pre-scan etc. What do I do to load the first slide? On the previous version, I would press the eject button. Thanks!

Scan & Edit in HDR Studio at the same time

It would save a lot of time if I could edit in HDR Studio as slides are being batch scanned. As best as I can tell, I need to wait until the scanner is done before I can open HDR Studio. My computer has plenty of performance to do 2 things at once.

Thanks!

6.6.1r1 Fixes the bug!

The latest version 6.6.1r1 seems to fix the problem! Thank you for the fast response! I haven't done a lot of scanning yet, but so far the problem is completely fixed. I've not had a problem since installing the update. :D

Re: Batch Scans hang SilverFast w/ NikonSCS5000 Leopard

Leopard 10.5.7 did not help. This problem occurs even when there is zero activity by other USB devices (not counting the mouse/keyboard). I tried switching to a different USB port. The problem still occurs. It seems to be worse when there are other activities and less common when only the scanner is...

Re: Batch Scans hang SilverFast w/ NikonSCS5000 Leopard

The scanner is connected directly to the computer via a USB port in the rear. The disk was connected directly via a USB in the front. If it was only during backup, it would not be an issue. Unfortunately, I see this when doing batch scans when I am not otherwise using the system. This is a brand new...

Re: Batch Scans hang SilverFast w/ NikonSCS5000 Leopard

Yes, I'm using Silverfast 6.6.0r5 from a CD. I will try deleting preferences, but this problem occurred shortly after I installed for the first time. I tried scanning some negatives this weekend while I was doing a backup to an external USB disk. I never could get it to work while the backup was in ...

Batch Scans hang SilverFast w/ NikonSCS5000 Leopard

I'm new to SilverFast. I'm running a Nikon Super Coolscan 5000 with an SF-210 on a new Mac Pro 2009 2.66 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon with Leopard 10.5.6. Thank you for picking up when Nikon quit! When it works, SilverFast is quite splendid. Unfortunately, SilverFast will often hang in the middle of a b...

Re: Post scan multi-processing

Yes, the performance for iSRD is great. My point is that I'm scanner bound, but my scanner is only scanning half of the time. I scan a slide, then it processes, then it scans another slide. If you can overlap scanning and processing, instead of doing it serially as you do today, then there is no nee...

Re: Post scan multi-processing

I just timed it. My batch scans are scanner bound, not processing bound even with all the extras like SRD and multi-exposure. So, no need for a lot of parallelism, just do the processing in the background while scanning and we'll get 2x the throughput.

Thanks! Nice software.

Cheers,
Dick

Re: Post scan multi-processing

I'd like to echo this request. Just overlapping the scanning with the post processing would be fabulous. There are some less difficult ways to add parallelism to your application. You can replace some of your library calls with threaded high performance libraries such as Intel's IPP. When you do go ...
