  • How long does film transfer take?

    Our “Standby rate” transfers will take from 1 to 2 weeks. Our “Priority rate” transfers are completed in 1 to 2 days (add $50/hr).
  • Does it cost extra for Wetgate?

    No, use of the Wetgate Dirt & Scratch concealment is included at no additional cost.

Wet vs Dry Example

The Wetgate system conceals or reduces the appearance of dirt and scratches by passing film through a liquid filled chamber where it's scanned. The fluid fills scratches and temporarily eliminates or reduces defects. Dry transfers show flaws in the film such as dirt and scratches. CinePost is the only facility in the United States with a functioning Wetgate system. Watch the video below for an example.
