The DigitaLIZA makes it easy to scan uncommon frame sizes and to include the sprocket holes, but lining it up on the scanner bed can be tricky. This easy tipster shows you how to get good alignment every time.
The DigitaLIZA makes it easy to scan uncommon frame sizes and to include the sprocket holes, but lining it up on the scanner bed can be tricky. The Epson v500 has a small area at the top of the scanner bed that needs to be kept clear, otherwise the software will complain. It also doesn’t scan all the way down to the bottom of the bed, so sometimes it takes a few tries to get the DigitaLIZA right in the middle so that you can maximize the scanning area, but not cover the registration zone at the top of the bed. Also, if the DigitaLIZA is not perfectly straight, your scans will be crooked and probably need to be rotated in post processing. The following pictures tell the whole story. I used 3/8 inch foam core board.
