Scan Tailor Multi-Core


ScanTailor_multi_core speeds up ScanTailor Enhanced image processing by using multiple CPU cores.

Note: this is old software. Newer versions of ScanTailor such as Scan Tailor Advanced and Scan Tailor Experimental have built in support for multi core processing.

What it does:

Processes step 6 in ScanTailor Enhanced many times faster on computers with multiple CPU cores.


How to use:
First do steps 1-5 in ScanTailor Enhanced and do settings for step 6
Run ScanTailor_multi_core and either
(A) Save project as .ScanTailor file, select it in ScanTailor_multi_core, click "Start", or
(B) Make sure only one Scan Tailor window is open and has the project prepared and then click "Start" (without selecting a file)

Note: Mode (B) saves a temp project file to the ScanTailor_multi_core folder. If processing fails retry with that .ScanTailor file.


- Download and unzip scantailor_multi_core.
- Install Scan Tailor Enhanced
- On first run you are asked for the path to scantailor-cli.exe
