Advanced Workflow Suggestions

If you're scanning several frames from the same roll of film, the following procedure will optimally set the CCD exposure and film base color (i.e. mask color):

Press the Advanced button

  1. Set Input | Media
  2. Insert film with a transparent area
  3. If Input | Lock exposure is visible, clear Input | Lock exposure
  4. Press the Preview button
  5. Adjust cropping if necessary
  6. If Input | Lock exposure is visible, set Input | Lock exposure
  7. Press the Preview button again
  8. If Input | Lock film base color is visible, set Input | Lock film base color
For step #2 above, use a film frame that has an area that would print as pure black for negative, or pure white for slides.

Regardless of the lighting conditions, shutter speed and aperture of each frame, you should use these fixed values for exposure and film base color for scanning all frames on the roll of film. Once you have the exposure and film base color fixed, you can scan the whole roll of film using these values.
