Loading Previously Scanned Drawings

The Load From File command allows you to load a previously scanned drawing into the Scan module. This is useful if you want to view a drawing you already scanned.

To load a previously scanned drawing:

1. Select File > Load From File.

The Select File To View dialog box displays the directories and files in the current directory. You can load graphics in any of the following bitmap formats:

OMF: Open Media Framework image format. This format is compatible with Avid applications.
OPT: An optimized version of the SCAN image format. This format retains the alpha channel information for the image. It also preserves the quality of the image while keeping the file size low.
RCI: The drawings are in Recognition Concepts Inc. image format.
Scan: The scan image format. This format retains the scanning information about the image (resolution in dpi, drawing registration), which the Stage Module uses.
SGI: The drawings are in a Silicon Graphics Inc. image format. This format retains the alpha channel information for the image.
TGA: The drawings are in a Generic Targa image format. This format contains the alpha channel information for the image and is widely compatible (cross-platform).
VAR: The drawings are in a Variable header image format,
YUV: The drawings are in a graphic type for animations that appear in National Television System Committee (NTSC) image format,
PAL: The drawings are in a graphic type for animations that appear in Phase Alternating Line (PAL) image format.
2. Browse to the folder where your scanned drawings are saved.
3. Select the file you want to view.
4. Click OK.
