Film Transfers

What's Included with Your Home Movie Transfer


The tiniest speck of dust or dirt will look enormous on your TV screen. We clean all 8mm and Super 8mm movie film to assure you get the clearest picture possible.


As your film gets older, the splices you may have applied years ago may not hold as well as they used to. Should those splices break, we will repair them (within reason) at no extra charge.

If you have three or more 50-foot reels, they will be spliced onto 200 or 400-foot reels. Each reel will be labeled, indicating which 50-foot reels have been spliced into it. Empty reels, with writing on them, will be returned.

Transfer & Monitoring

Trained technicians carefully monitor the entire transfer for picture framing and focus. Your film is digitally scanned, frame by frame, and captured in its entirety in high resolution directly to computer hard drive before going to our editing department for further enhancing.

Editing & Enhancement

Our editors view your entire transfer scene by scene, eliminating blank footage, and enhancing brightness, contrast and color on our exclusive transfer system.

Opening Title

We begin your home movie production with your own personalized title (Example: "The Smith Family Memories"). This same title will be imprinted on the face of your DVD.

Background Music

We will add background hi-fi Dolby digital music to the entire length of the transfer. This can be from our library of family-oriented, easy listening music or you can provide your own CD to bring your movies to life. See our additional services for supplying your own audio or custom audio to your transfer.

Your DVD

When transferring to a DVD, we use the highest quality DVD-R media that has been tested to get the maximum quality results with our equipment.

Conversion Process
Your film will be converted to DVD utilizing VBR (Variable Bitrate) encoding technology which produces an overall higher and more consistent quality level than Constant Bit Rate encoding.

Custom DVD Imprint
The same Opening Title that you choose will be custom printed on the face of your DVD.

Thumbnail Menu & Chapter Points
A visual "thumbnail" menu at the beginning, showing a picture of the first frame of each three-minute chapter point.
