Frame Detection

The revolutionary IFF+Engine

We developed the IFF+Engine (Intelligent Frame Finding) that intelligently searches for photos, slides and filmstrips, which lie on the flatbed or in the film holder.

All image frames are now perfectly found. In addition, the frame outset option ensures that no images are cropped during scanning. Store your images on your hard drive, fast and securely with our current SilverFast Archive Suite.

Additional Expert Features

These additional features are included with SilverFast Ai Studio, HDR Studio und Archive Suite.

Frame Outset

Open the SilverFast preferences and switch to the “Auto” tab. Enter a value of 5% into the “Find Frames: Outset” text field and a safety addition of this size will be added to all frames when starting the scanning process.

Specify Custom Frame Size

Different cameras expose different wide film areas, and not every camera transports the film equidistant. Therefore, the actual image size on slides and filmstrips, and also the distance between individual images on filmstrips can slightly vary from film to film. For example, the image width can sometimes be 34.8mm instead of exactly 35mm. The new IFF+Engine takes this into account and detects even the smallest differences in image size.

Additionally, you can force a custom image size. To do so, enter the desired image frame width for your filmstrips in mm in the “Find Frames: Filmstrip Image Size” field. If you also need a specific fixed distance between individual images, use the setting “Find Frames: Filmstrip Gap Size”.

Please also take notice of our video, which examines these special additional options more closely.

High Resolution Preview Scan

The more image data available to the algorithm for frame detection, the more precisely the image frames can be found. To maximize the performance of the IFF+Engine, in the SilverFast preferences’ “General” tab, select the setting “8x” from the „High Resolution Prescan” drop-down menu.
