Frame by Frame Scanning

The most effective approach to transferring 16mm, Super 8, and 8mm film to DVD involves a frame-by-frame scanning technique. This detailed process guarantees exceptional quality while eliminating the blur and distortions of other methods.

Once captured, our experts strategically utilize frame repetition and patterns to duplicate and reinsert frames, adeptly converting the original 18 frames per second (or other less prevalent frame rates) to the standard 30 frames per second of NTSC DVDs.

As you pause your movie and examine a single frame, you’ll be astounded by the remarkable clarity and sharpness of our conversion of your 8mm film to digital.

Professional Grade Media Conversion Equipment

At Two Squares, our professional-grade conversion equipment conducts frame-by-frame scans in a controlled environment, ensuring each video reproduction meets our quality standards. The image above illustrates one of our high-definition 8mm/Super 8 scanning machines. Our HD system incorporates an industrial-grade camera mounted directly onto the machine, utilizing a single high-quality lens to focus on the film frame surface.

This approach results in exceptional quality compared to alternative capture systems that employ 3 to 5 lenses and mirrored surfaces between the film and the digitizer, which may introduce minor distortions, hinder focusing, and diminish video sharpness.

We’re confident you can see the difference a Two Square media conversion makes when you convert 8mm film to digital using our 8mm film scanning service.

Post Processing and Color Correction

A common challenge encountered with aging movie films is the gradual fading or shifting of colors towards green or red hues, an issue that can even affect black-and-white films. To address this concern, our experts rely on a professional-grade post-processing software package when providing services such as converting 8mm film to digital or Super 8 film to digital.

This sophisticated tool enables us to render black-and-white films in their original grayscale format while expertly balancing the colors of color films to achieve a more natural appearance. In addition, we adjust contrast and lighting levels to enhance the final product. However, it is imperative to recognize these improvements may be constrained by the inherent quality of the original film.
