what is the problem that you have?

importing the scan file into jitter?
that can be done with [jit.qt.movie] or [jit.matrix].
open the help file and experiment.

triggering the scan from within max?
that depends on your platform (OSX/XP), your scanner,..
the easy way out is to use a scanner that has a scan button.
use the software that comes with the scanner to configure the scanner
button
to put a scan file in a specified folder.
from within max, check this folder using the [folder] object every n
seconds and load as above.

Hope this helps
