Film to DVD - Keys to a Successful Conversion to DVD/Digital

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. 

  1. Insist on the very finest equipment! Today’s technology includes custom made machines that:? 
    A) Do not use the delicate sprockets on your film – insist on Zero Image Contact area. No sprockets, claws, or pinch rollers should touch your film – to prevent damage by design. Aging, brittle film, is very delicate and must be treated with the utmost care. 
    B)  They are designed to be used for professional film to DVD projects – not just home use.
    C) Automatic exposure adjustment is included in every scan.
    D) Today, solid state capture equipment insures that you get the highest quality film transfer possible.
     
  2. Every frame of every reel in a film to DVD project must be thoroughly cleaned. This requires microfiber cleaning cloths and antistatic cleaner designed specifically for 8mm Film to DVD and 16mm Film to DVD projects.
     
  3. When converting Film to DVD, every frame must be captured – not a percentage of them. Furthermore, each frame needs to be scanned for the best quality, not projected into another camera. 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. Leader and unexposed film at the beginning and end of each reel (every 50 feet for 8mm Film to DVD and every 100 feet for 16mm Film to DVD), needs to be removed electronically after the scan so that you have the cleanest version possible of your final project. 
     
  6. Your film deserves basic custom menus and scenes included in the basic price for that professional transfer look and feel. You may also want the option of creating custom menus for your project. 
     
  7. Depending on your needs, you need the choice between SD and DH video.

Converting Film to DVD? Turn Your Old Tapes into Secret Spaces!


By Jamey Nordby - December 22, 2019

Are you thinking of converting film to DVD? Are you wondering what you’re going to do with all those old tapes? The good news is that you can put them to good use in your home. Old videotapes are the perfect secret space to hide important things. Perhaps you want to find a safe spot to store precious jewelry. Or, perhaps you have secrets that you need to hide from your family or friends. Either way, you can use those old tapes to keep things safe from prying eyes. So, how do you start? 

What Will I Need?

First, you’ll need to get together a few simple items:
  • Glue
  • A screwdriver
  • Cutting bit and rotary tool
  • Fabric
  • Plastic, thin wood or cardboard
  • Scissors
  • An old VHS tape

Taking Apart the Old VHS Tape

The first step is the take your old VHS tape apart:
  • Rewind the VHS until the whole tape is on one spool.
  • Flip over the tape. Remove all the screws.
  • Remove both spools from inside the tape.
  • Cut the tape. This will separate the spools.
  • There will still be a piece of clear tape connected to the middle of the spool without tape on it. Pull it to break it off.
  • Draw a line over the spool.
  • Cut off the empty spool’s top layer.
  • On the other spool that contains tape, melt the tape as you cut it. Use a rotary tool for this.
  • Set your rotary tool to its highest speed. This melts the tape while it cuts and stops the tape from coming off its spool.
  • Cut through both the spool’s top layer and the tape itself. Don’t cut the bottom layer.
  • Return the spools to the case.
  • Rotate the spool so you can see the uncut parts through the window.
  • Remove the mechanism that controls the spools’ movement.
  • Remove the raised plastic that protected the mechanism.
  • Remote the metal strip on the case top.
  • Cut two pieces of plastic, wood, or cardboard to the same length of the cuts on each spool.
  • Glue them onto the cuts. This stops the hidden items from moving into a place where you can see them through the case windows.
  • Glue the spools into the bottom half of the case. Make sure you position them properly so you can only see the spools’ uncut parts through the window.
  • Fit the upper half of the case onto the bottom half.
  • Screw the case together again using the four screws – one in each corner.
  • Return the tape to its cardboard or plastic cover.
  • Hide any item of your choice inside.

Why Convert Video To Digital?

Useful though old VHS tapes are for storing precious items secretly, why else should you consider converting film to DVD? VHS tapes degrade rapidly. Over time, your old home movies become damaged and, eventually, will be unwatchable. If you transfer them to digital media, you can be sure you will have preserved those memories. Arrange to have your videos transferred to a digital format now and save your family moments.

Want to Convert Film to DVD? A Guide to Measuring the Footage


By Jamey Nordby - October 18, 2019

Are you looking for a way to convert film to a DVD so you can preserve precious family home movies? More of us are thinking about how we can keep old recordings and videotapes safe for future generations. A conversion company, such as Reborn, could be the answer you’ve been searching for. We can take the content from your tapes and transfer it to a DVD. This ensures you have preserved your memories before damage can occur to the tapes.

Over time, film reels deteriorate and become worn. This is because of environmental factors, such as heat, moisture, and dust. This causes the sound and image quality to fade away. Eventually, you will lose the images forever. If you haven’t digitized your old videotapes yet, it’s time to act. So, what do you need to do to prepare your tapes for the conversion process?

Why Measure the Film

When you choose to digitize your tapes with Reborn, we’ll transfer old reels of film to DVDs for you. The process is secure and safe, and we guarantee you’ll be able to preserve your footage. During the process, we carry out all the necessary editing, color correction, and cleaning. This will make sure the footage stays high quality. However, you’ll need to be aware of how long the film is before you send it to us for conversion. This will enable us to quote you the correct price. Before you send us your film, you need to measure the reel. This will determine an estimate of the footage.

How to Measure the Reel

You can use a measuring tape or ruler to take the film reel’s diameter. Usually, most film reels have a range of 3 to 7 inches across their middles. There are a few larger reels, however, they are very rare.

If your reel measures 3 inches in diameter, this will be around 50 feet of film. A reel that measures 5 inches in diameter will give you about 200 feet of film. A 7-inch diameter film equates to about 400 feet of film. You can use these measurements as a useful guide to estimate your footage. This will help you to get the most accurate quote for your conversion possible.

Digitizing Your Home Movies with Reborn

It’s never been simpler to transfer old memories to DVD and digital formats. Here at Reborn, we’re experts in the field. Just send your media to us and we’ll do all the hard work for you. You’ll soon receive a digitized copy of your media files that you can watch again and again. We guarantee that you’ll be delighted with the results.

Our professional service represents the best way to convert film to a DVD. We’ll handle your precious home movies as if they were our own. We’ll keep them safe and make sure we have converted them to digital media safely and to the highest standard. Then, you’ll be able to show future generations recordings of special moments and celebrations for many years to come.
