How do I scan my LomoKino film using a flatbed scanner?
Once your LomoKino film has been developed, you can scan it yourself using a backlit scanner. Here are the steps on how to scan your LomoKino film using a flatbed scanner:
- Cut your LomoKino film roll into lengths which fit into a scanning mask such as the DigitaLIZA 35mm mask
- Scan each of the lengths – Don’t color correct your LomoKino scans or at least keep the same scan settings throughout the film – This way you are more likely to get consistent results
- When you have scanned each of the lengths, crop your scans into individual frames using an image editing program
- Save each of your LomoKino frames as separate files – Remember to keep the same order and orientation when you scan the negatives – The best way to do this is save each movie frame as a 3-digit number such as 001, 002, 003, all the way to the end of the film
- With individual files for each of your frames, it’s easy to edit your scans into a movie using video editing software such as Windows Live Movie Maker or Imovie.
