- Corresponding English-language article: Slit-Scan photography
- Worth doing because: French article is more extensive information worth incorporating into the English stub

I came here expecting an article on slit-scanning as traditionally used to produce stills (photo-finish pictures, panoramic images) as described here.
I can write a first stab at this, but should it all go in this article, or should there be a "slit scanning cinematography" article with the current article, "slit scanning photography" containing info about stills, and a disambiguation page? Ukslim 10:37, 6 February 2006 (UTC)
In the paragraph "Description" it is only described how to gain the Stargate-Effect, but Slit-scan is able to give a much wider variety of effects than mentioned. --22.214.171.124 (talk) 18:22, 20 January 2008 (UTC)
It's possible to create effects like this, with hand, face, or objects, on a flat-bed scanner. Scan your hand, and as the lit scanner-bar moves downward, move your hand occasionally. You get the same effect, explained by the scanner taking a series of 1-d slices of the picture at a time.
This is not in itself a useful technique, but I was reminded of this when I read the article. As an experiment for the reader to try, it might help get the point across.
