Save your old home movies before they fade with time by converting your 8mm and Super8 reels to DVD for the next generation to enjoy.
Our new and improved 8mm transfer system boasts several great features that produce high quality movies:
Scene by Scene Density Adjustment - As your film is digitized, the technician will manually adjust a scene to ensure the best possible balance of clarity and overall look.
Manual Retiming - 8mm and Super8 film used to run at frame rates ranging from 16 to 23 frames per second, while DVDs run at 29.97 frames per second. To compensate for this discrepancy, other companies speed up the reel to match current standards, which causes the "silent movie" effect whem everyone seems to be moving quickly. Instead, we capture your reels frame-by-frame so we can retime the movie to appear at a normal speed.
Flicker Free Playback – With our frame-by-frame and manual retiming methods, the flicker effect that plagues so many other transfers is removed altogether.
Full Frame Capture - We capture as much of the film as possible without resorting to stretching or distorting your movies.
Menu with Selectable Chapters - All DVDs include full menus and chapter selections so you can pick and choose what you’d like to watch.
Transfer in Order - Each reel is used to create a chapter on the DVD. If you would like them in a specific order, simply number the reels and we will transfer them in that order.
