We DO NOT use Frame-by-Frame Transfer

Two of the worst methods of converting cine film to DVD are “Frame by Frame” and “Projector and Camera” both are very similar in their process. Frame by Frame, due to the process is harmful to your cine films. Each frame is projected and a photograph, hopefully digital, is taken. Each photo is than linked together in a chain and the frame rate is adjusted by doubling some of the frames. They are doubled because film is around 18fps (frames per second) and TV is 25 fps, this is why many films flicker and the "doubled" ones don't look natural.

If a projector bulb is used your films can become burnt from the heat. It only takes a few seconds from a hot bulb it irreparably damage your cine films. Projector & Camera is very similar, except your cine is projected onto a wall and recorded with a video camera. The results are awful, washy, blurred, dark and skewed.

Customer Review of Cine to DVD

Here are some quotes from customers who had either super 8 cine or 8mm film transfer to DVD

8mm Film to DVD - "Thank you for the transfer of our 8mm films. I wanted to go locally but my husband convinced me you were the best. I'm glad to say he was right (for a change). The local firm did do a free sample for us and we have just compared these with your films which are much better. I am pleased to send you the rest of our collection next month ...."
Jane York - Northampton

Super8 Film to DVD - "We was quite worried about sending you my grandparents films as it was a surprise gift for their anniversary present.... Just like to thanks you for a splendid job but further more a big thanks for letting us know that half of them were damaged beyond use. This honesty is quite refreshing. I can assure you that the money you have saved us will be recouped from all the extra business I will get you from referrals"
David Seldon Essex - Bury
