Help for New Scanner

Post by gutto12 » 26 Jan 2018, 10:42

Good morning everyone!

I'm starting the construction of a The Archivist, by Daniel Reetz, with two Canon EOS T3, (1000D) cameras ... I need help for the capture and post processing software.

After browsing hundreds of pages of this wonderful and edifying community, the following questions were asked:

TwoCamControl: works only with CHDK cameras, my T3 is out. What would be another alternative?

ST: Great images processing, I've tested it several times and it has an excellent end result for captures with 2 cameras. But what's the difference of ST version 0.9.11.1 x Scantailor-Advanced.

Is there any other capture software that I can use in Windows 7?
I have a VM (VitualBox) installed, but I'm not good with programming, so I do not know, what would be better ...
Spreads maybe ??

Please help me with a stream of scanning! :lol: :D


Doing the cutting tests !!

Some books that I will scan are more than a hundred years old. The oldest, already unmasked by the time, and is of 1889.
