a new Version of ScanController is available - German Localisation was added, a huge Code Cleanup has been done and some GUI Enhancements were implemented. Full changelog here. Please post all issues you find in this thread.

When using the Arduino Interface please use the emptysketch.ino as a base for your own sketches - the communication between ScanController and Arduino was streamlined and is incompatible to 0.7.* sketches

Alternate use
The Scan controller works great triggering the Arduino/stepper motor transport to move to the next frame, then turn on the scanner.
As an alternate, is it possible to use the same theory to advance the transport one frame at the time, and after each frame advance trip the shutter on a digital camera?
the camera is an olympus E-PL1.
My setup using cinetovid pro works, but the scanner will not focus on the film, and resulting scans are out of focus.
Would appreciate your input.

Using digital Camera with ScanController
Hello John,

In theory it would be possible to scan the film image by image.
But this will take an awfull long time to scan a film and I am not sure, if a digitql camera shutter will survive this procedure for a long time - remember, a 30 minute long film has 30 x 60 x 18 frames or about 32400 frames.
Shutters of digital cameras are not designed for that many operations.

It is probably much cheaper to invest into a new scanner. The new high quality Epson scanners (with LED light source) e.g. the EPSON Perfection V550 is in Germany about 200 to 250 Euro.
