8mm Film Transfer Process – Prepping the Film is half the work!
8mm Film is at least 30 years old. 16mm film is even older. That means decades of grime, dust, wear and tear. Even if you have not touched or watched those old film reels since you were a kid, the raves of time and environmental factors take a toll after decades. To transfer 8mm film to DVD or to external hard drive the right way, invest the time in prepping the film – inspecting the film, cleaning off the grime with a non-chemical film cleaner, reconditioning the film so it will run smoothly on the projector later, repairing broken splices to prevent the brittle 8mm film from snapping during the transfer process.
How will the film is cleaned and reconditioned makes a big difference to the final results.
