I'm making my first attempt at scanning and importing a score into Finale Guitar. The score is actually a 4-part score for unaccompanied voice(s); that is, a vocal quartet. But I would be satisfied if it ended up looking like a piano score. I scanned the first page as a .tif file and read it into Guitar using the File/Smartscore Lite function. What I get is the first 4 measures of the score and nothing more.
Does anyone have any idea what I might be doing wrong?
Can I expect much better results if I upgrade to Allegro?
I understand that I'm not going to get 100% accuracy and I expect to have to do a lot of editing. I'm hoping for 85-90% accuracy.

|Guitar would be a 2002/2003 version, is that correct ? As far as I know the scanning software is the same across the whole range of products, but the later releases have an updated version. I had PrintMusic 2003, and the scanning worked poorly; presumably that is what you have. I found the scanning in PrintMusic 2004 a major improvement, and actually quite useful. Allegro and Finale are at the 2005 release, and have a still later version of the scanning software : I have not tried them, but some people on these forums have claimed that the 2005 version is worse than the 2004 one. |
You could try downloading a demo of one of these programs and trying out the scanning. The manual I have with PM04 has a section on scanning with tips for scanner settings to get the best results - if you don't find that in your manual, then do a search on these forums for scanning as there have been several detailed discussions of problems fairly recently.
