Resume unfinished book
Go back to right where you left off to continue and finish the book. All the settings and files of the previous job will come back alive.
Turn on the Timed Lapse mode and the cameras will be triggered to fire automatically at every pre-defined intervals between 1-10 seconds, requiring you to simply flick through the pages. No button pressing.
Easy insert and replace
Don't sweat if you've skipped some pages. The program will let you go back to insert missing pages or replace the bad shots with better ones. You don't have to worry about its location and file name. The software will take care all of that for you (properly naming and renaming all the effected files).
After images are shot, you can decide to crop them right away in BookDrive Capture software. This functionality is handy if you are not interested in post image processing. There is also a keyboard shortcut for "crop and shoot" so that the cameras proceed with the scanning with your minimum effort.
