        It is indeed a rather complicated function. Data doesn't come in an 
easy form. But I don't exactly see why you want to convert to planar data

        At high motor resolution, lines are staggered, ie they aren't
horizontal lines. On pixel is on a line, the folowing colunm is on another ...
        A drawing may be more evident:

        'O' are pixel of on horizontal line, '.' other lines data

        I'll test and check in your patch Wednesday morning.
