Whole Scan Images Creating EDF Images Doesn't Work
Whole Scan Images

Information in this article applies to:

  • uScope Navigator V4.5 and Later

Users cannot create EDF images from scans. Under Multi-Layer Options on the Create Whole Scan Image dialog, when Create EDF Deep Zoom is selected, the Whole Scan Image generator hangs at 0% and never completes.

When Create for All Layers is selected, the Whole Scan Image Generator works correctly and creates a multi-layer Deep Zoom image.


EDF (Extended Depth of Field) scanning requires a separate license to operate. Without this license, uScope Navigator hangs waiting indefinitely for the EDF License to register.

Please contact our sales department for more information about the EDF Software license.


To resolve this problem, do not select the Create EDF Deep Zoom option if you do not have an EDF Sofftware license.

This problem is corrected in uScope Navigator v4.6.
