Our Film Conversion to Digital Process


Upon arrival of your film transfer project, each film reel is inspected, cleaned and old splices are repaired. The projector, optical system and high quality video camera are all in one compact unit called a "Telecine Machine".

The picture quality is excellent with no trace of flicker.  The running speed is crystal controlled to eliminate the unnatural speed-up of action. The film is converted to digital video and captured into Apple's "Final Cut Pro" editing software. Any blank spots or non-viewable parts of the film are removed.  Some films require color correction, this can help bring the film back into color balance. If selected, Instrumental background music is added along with Chapter Markers.  When the video editing process is completed the video is burned to a high quality DVD-R disc. The disc is then printed with the project title and then placed in a clear plastic DVD case.
