ScanTailor_multi_core

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

What it does

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


How to use
First do steps 1-5 in ScanTailor 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.

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