transfer 8 mm film to dvd


ubiediting

Question

Hallo to fellow members of this forum.

I would be grateful for advice on the best way to transfer, mainly Kodachrome colour movie 8mm film, dating from 1950 to 1960, of family memories , to DVD or MiniDV, after editing in Roxio 7.1.189.

I realise that this work can be sent out to a professional but would like to do it myself if possible.

Thanks in advance, ubiediting

There are 3 ways to do this.

 

The backscreen projection that I mentioned.

 

Frame by frame scan (very expensive)

 

Or some just project onto a wall/screen/piece of paper and capture with a video camera kept as close to the projector as you can. (reduces parallax)

 

The quality? No better than the projected image, which we thought was pretty good all those years ago…

 

I have some to do this week, but I am waiting for a new bulb for my projetor...

Hallo again james_hardin

Sorry about the long time to reply but I wanted to try your suggestion of projecting my 8mm film onto a surface and video it, which after at least 3 days experiments!, and many broken splices, I finished up with a pleasing digital copy which I am editing in VW 7.1.1.189. Also took some time to find a supplier of film cement (www.hama.com) in case you ever have need. Thanks once again for your help,ubiediting

Since you have the video on your PC, simply bring the video into DVDBuilder, set up menus and burn to a DVD. You would be better to post your question in the EMC 7/7.5 forum where questions like this are covered. I have no idea what the capabilities of the program "VideoWave Movie Creator" are.

Hallo james_harden

It is good of you to send this information and I would like to know the way to do backscreen projection, as. I have a 8mm eumig projector,also a sony digital camcorder with firewire connection. Am I correct in thinking that you project onto the mirrow and record on the camcorder? also the angle of camcorder and projector to mirrow, assuming they must both be straight in front of the mirrow?

Might I ask if the image quality was O.K., or not, as I hope to archive the results on either a DVD or MiniDV tape, which would you think best?

Much oblighed for your help. ubiediting
