Before the advent of modern camcorders the mass market way of capturing moving images
was to use a cine film camera. The film came in various sizes with 8mm being the
most popular. Using professional 3CCD image capture techniques, we digitally ‘capture’
the frames, then edit the digital ‘film’’, add period relevant music that complements
the ‘action’ if the film is of the silent variety or digitally enhance the soundtrack
if there is one. The final product is a fully authored DVD complete with chapter
points and titles.
We DO use projection as we have found this to be the most economical method to convert
cine film. Audio is treated separately and then carefully reapplied to the finished
digital images fully lip-synched and matched. So if you are looking for a professional
quality conversion that offers the best value for money, look no further and give
us a try.
