Advanced Scanning grew out of the research and development we conducted when we were building the scanner software. We needed a way to control the fundamental aspects of the scanner and visualize the results, so we could understand what worked and what didn’t.
The main screen scanning options - “Single-Colored” and “Multi-Colored” - both codify and encapsulate the knowledge we gained through using the advanced features. These have improved with each release, and now they’ve reached a point where their results are often as good as those you’d get in Advanced. But to understand what they’re doing and why, the best way to explain is to take you through Advanced Scanning, so you can have a similar journey to the one we’ve had – learning what are the fundamental aspects of the scanner and how they affect the end result.
Understanding these things and using the Advanced features is surprisingly easy, especially when you give them a try in the software.
The concepts in Advanced Scanning apply to both Mac and Windows software. However, the two software packages currently look and function differently. We are actively working on a UX unification plan for our software.
