[filmscanners] Re: 3 year wait

Austin is correct, from the research I've done here.  There use of the
word "lines" in there resolution description probably originally came
from "raster lines" since many film recorders used a high res monochrome
CRT screen (through colored filters) to create the image.  The raster
lines usually go from top to bottom, but I think it just became a
standard word usage with film recorders.
