8mm Film to DVD - The Way It Should Be Done

  1. Your priceless film must be cared for properly and the transfer done with the correct process in order for your reborn home movies to be their very best. 
  2. Every reel in an 8mm film to DVD project must be thoroughly cleaned. This requires microfiber cleaning cloths and antistatic cleaner designed specifically to clean 8mm film. 
  3. The film needs to be captured frame-by-frame. Don’t be fooled by projector-based capture when every frame is needed for a true transfer from film to digital.
  4. Most film color fades over time. Moreover, not every film was originally taken with the best lighting and exposure. Insist on color and exposure correction to be included in the price that you pay. This includes both capture-based and post capture editing correction for back lighting and color. 
  5. Most film has blank spots at the beginning, end and occasionally in the middle – these should be edited out of the final product. 
  6. Your film deserves basic custom menus and scenes included in the basic price for that professional transfer look and fee.
  7. Depending on your needs, you need the choice between SD and DH video.

The Best 8mm Film to DVD equipment is crucial

  • Safety – you don’t want to risk damage to your film – there is no backup! The right transfer equipment is designed for Zero Image Contact area. No sprockets, claws, or pinch rollers touch your film – insuring that damage to aging, brittle film, is prevented by design.
  • Quality – a film scan frame by frame insures that the integrity of your film is preserved and that the quality of the film transfer is optimal. A true scan of your film is night and day different from a ‘picture of a picture’.
  • Video Clarity - Cutting edge solid state scanning equipment insures that you get the truest capture of your film possible. If you are incurring the cost and effort to transfer film – you only want a great home movie with the best picture possible.

Edit 8mm to Digital, 8mm to DVD Conversion

Convert 8mm film and edit your custom video

By Jamey Nordby - October 1, 2016

Taking those old films and converting them from 8mm film to digital or 8mm film to DVD is not straightforward if you desire to edit the final video before showing to your friends and family.

The most common mistake is that people choose DVD, assuming that they can edit it later - not very easily. First, DVD is a compressed format, lowering resolution and quality. So, if you wish to edit yoru fim later, then 8mm Film to Quicktime, .mp4 or .avi is a much better choice. The tools available and the quality of the video is much higher when these formats are used.

You can also choose a custom edit, where an editor sits with you to create the perfect final video for family, friends, and events.

VHS to DVD for Christmas

By Jamey Nordby - September 9, 2016

That's right!

It is not too early to start your VHS to DVD conversion project now. If you wait until Thanksgiving, if there is still time, it could cost more to guarantee a Christmas delivery!

Want to organize your project. It is very simple: Start by numbering your project in the order you want it (Sharpie on the VHS, miniDV, slide, etc). Then, determine if these can be combined onto a single DVD (If it fits). do the same for 8mm Film to DVD, as well as Scan Slides (number the carousel).

Hint: Combining video onto fewer disc now can save money for copies in the future!

8mm Film to DVD Preservation

8mm Film to DVD Conversion

By Jamey Nordby - June 23, 2016

Cool and dry are the keys to preserving film - even in a freezer!

Humidity and heat create a number of problems - brittle (and the breakage that goes with it), and the infamous vinegar smell of deteriorating film. Even mold can grow on the film, eventually ruining the picture. 

Before engaging in an 8mm Film to DVD project, the film needs to be cleaned with appropriate cleaner/lubricant that is anti-static so that the picture is the best it can be and it moves through the frame by frame scanner without a problem.
