CinePost takes pride in the 8mm to DVD projects we work with. Many of our clients come to us with their precious home movies and simply want to get everything converted into something they can enjoy with the family and share with their friends. We try to make the process simple and straight forward, just send over your 8mm home movies and we will scan them using professional grade telecine equipment. Then one of our editors will compile everything onto a playable DVD ready to view on your home entertainment system.
- Our DVD’s all have a title and scene menu
- We include chapter stops at the beginning of each reel
- Longer reels we add chapters about every five minutes so that you can easily skip around
- With quality in mind CinePost uses Verbatim DVD-R discs with your title printed on the front
- Extra copies are no problem
- We never use any type of write-protection or DRM on your discs.
When going from 8mm to DVD we employ our Rank Cintel Turbo in addition to a Wetgate scratch concealment system and our industry standard DaVinci Color Correction system. All transfers are supervised by an experienced telecine operator who watches your film as it is being scanned. We calibrate exposure levels, color balance, and focus for each individual reel. During editing we remove all the roll up and roll out so that the DVD plays smoothly from reel to reel, no long intervals of leader passing by.
In addition to a set of DVD’s with your home movies we also offer the raw video files used to create your discs. This way you get the master copy of the film transfer to have for safe keeping. If you eventually decide to do some editing, or you want to make clips to share online these are the video files you would use for that purpose. We deliver these to you on a computer hard drive or a flash drive, depending on file sizes.
