How do you convert film? What is the quality?

  • Updated

We are very proud of our film digitization process. After testing a lot of different options, we arrived at our process. We think it's the best way to create high quality videos, minimizing some of the jumpy, flickery effects we found common in other film transfers.

We use a special frame-by-frame scanning technique that is absolutely central to the process. By scanning each frame of film individually, film flicker and jitter are greatly reduced. Our film captures are set to capture film at SD, standard definition, 480p, which is enough resolution to see every last detail in the original frame.

For good quality film, it creates a high quality video file to watch with your family. For film that is damaged, but still able to run through our process, we have found that the frame-by-frame technique is by far the best process to recover as much of the original video as possible.

Our film transfers are wonderful for a thumb drive, Digital Access through Google Drive, or DVD that can be watched by your family. Since most film reels are generally short in length, your films will be combined onto as few DVDs as possible. With the thumb drive or Digital Access options, you will receive a separate file for each film.
