Multi Scan

The Multi Scan (Automatic Multiple Snapshots) feature allows you to set up a series of multiple snapshots, taken automatically. 

Multiscan


You can set it up to take snapshots on a time interval or by a motion trigger:

Multiscan view


The Timer function
Select this tab to set up for automatic snapshots according to a constant time interval.

The Time Interval parameter is set with the up/down arrows on the right side of the box. Large values can be typed into the box. 

You can do time-lapsed photography this way. For example, to take a snapshot every 15 minutes, set the value to 900 (60*15).


The visualiser software can stop taking pictures automatically after a certain number of images are taken. 

Step 1
Click the “Set maximum number of pictures” box and another number adjustment field box appears. 

Step 2
Set the maximum number of pictures using the up/down arrows on the right side of the box.Large values can be typed into the box.

Step 3
Start the automatic sequence by clicking the Start button. The dialog box will immediately shrink down out of the way of the image, and only its title bar will be shown just above the Toolbar. 

To check on the progress of the sequence or to stop it, click the up arrow on the right of the Multi Scan dialog title bar to bring up the dialog again. The Total Captures count in the upper right corner will increase each time a snapshot is taken. 


Step 4
Click the Stop button (or the “X” in the upper right corner) when you want to stop the sequence.


Step 5

Check the “Save to PDF” box to save the entire sequence of still images to one PDF file. You will find the file in the Archive under the PDF folder.

The Motion function
Select this tab to set up for automatic snapshots according to a motion that the camera will detect, such as a wave of your hand or turning a page under the camera lens. The Countdown and Trigger Reactive Time parameters are set with the up/down arrows next to the box.

Countdown is the number of seconds the camera will wait after sensing the motion before it takes the snapshot. Trigger Reactive Time is the number of seconds that the visualiser software will wait before recognising another motion. 

If you need about 10 seconds to set up each successive snapshot, and you want the camera to take a picture immediately once it senses motions, set Countdown to 0 (zero) seconds and Trigger Reactive Time to 10 seconds.

Step 1
Start the automatic sequence by clicking the Start button. The dialog box will immediately shrink down out of the way of the image, and only its title bar will be shown just above the Toolbar. 

Step 2
To check on the progress of the sequence or to stop it, click the up arrow on the right of the Multi Scan dialog title bar to bring up the dialog again. 

The Total Captures count in the upper right corner will increase each time a snapshot is taken. 

Step 3
Click the Stop button (or the “X” in the upper right corner) when you want to stop the sequence.
