Your film is history.
Part of your family history is tucked away, recorded on 8mm or Super 8 film. And, there is a good possibility that you no longer have a working projector to watch those memories. That’s not to mention that those old films are also becoming too old to project through a regular home projector without risking destroying them. Luckily, Pictures to Digital is here to convert your movie film to DVD or video files.
Time is of the essence.
8mm and Super 8 film are reaching an impasse. The film and dyes that make up your film are disintegrating. Depending on their age, condition, and how they were stored they are in some stage of disrepair. As these films age they become brittle, fade, the color changes, and they may even become host to mold colonies.
The beauty of transferring your film to DVD or video files is that you essentially stop the forces of time from acting on your home movies. Digital movies on DVD or video files, are basically immune to any further degradation. Even copies made of digital movies will be exact duplicates with no decrease in quality or content!
How we convert your film.
We use a method called Frame-
Movement in the movie looks normal. No one appears to be in slow motion or moving
too fast. Different movie cameras recorded film at different and varying speeds.
Because we reassemble the film frames one-
Our process also has an enlarged gate which means we capture the full frame of the movie. In other words, the edges of your movie are not cropped off as the original projector would have done, and as some other services may do.
Also available: Reels converted to MPEG or AVI video files. MPEG video files, 16¢ per foot. Your video files will be transferred to a portable hard drive, which you must supply or may purchase through Pictures to Digital.
