    Software for Screen CÚzanne Elite FT-S5500

    Hi,

    I have the chance to pick up a Screen CÚzanne Elite FT-S5500 in good condition from a printing company,
    but unfortunately they've lost the software along with the computer.

    Is this a lost cause? Any ideas what I could do?

    Best regards and thanks,
    Martin

    Does the 5500 take the same software as the 5000?

    Lucky you, I paid a lot for my older Cezanne.

    Unfortunately, ScreenUSA scanners are not supported by Silverfast or Vuescan, so you will have to find someone selling a copy of Screen's ColorGenius software, and probably an old Mac to run it on. You can still buy the software new from ScreenUSA (http://www.screenusa.com/) but it isn't cheap - Over $1000 USD from what I've seen.

    If I were you, I would go back to that printing company and do everything I could to track down the computer and the software. Otherwise, maybe post a "want ad" on the appropriate forums online and the Yahoo Group "High-End Scanning" .

    The software for the FS-5000 (Cezanne) and FS-5500 (Cezanne Elite) are not interchangeable. If I were you, I'd try to find a friendly person with Color Genius V2.x for the FS-5500. I only know people with the regular Cezanne.
    May tomorrow be a better day.

    Thanks guys!

    Hope I'll find a solution.
    Seems that for color neg scanning, the Cezanne gets away with quite clean but hi-rez files.
    Would love to rescan my bad Portra 400 scans.

    Best regards,
    Martin

    I hope so!

    Do you know if the software needs a serial?
    AFAIK, it's "abandonware" anyway, as Screen does no longer support these scanners and it doesn't even seem possible to buy the software.
    When a guy in the German LF forum was calling Screen's support hotline about availability, they even suggested/recommended copying it from a friendly user.

    Hi EOTS,

    So did you ever manage to get a copy of the CG2?

    If so how and what was the cost?

    Thanks,
    Rob

    I have a copy of ColorGenius 2 version 2.1.1 which is easily updated to version 2.1.3. I'm currently running it on OS X 10.4.11

    I'm sure I would be able to assist for a token gesture.
