How to Transfer Old Home Movies to DVD THIS ITEM IS NOT FOR SALE AND IS FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY:

THINGS YOU'LL NEED-

- VINTAGE FILM PROJECTOR
- MODERN VIDEO CAMERA
- COMPUTER THAT CAN BURN A DVD
- COMPUTER SOFTWARE THAT CAN EDIT DIGITAL VIDEO

Step 1: There are conversion services available to convert your 8mm films to DVD, but for the most part, they charge $3 to $5 per minute or 15 to 25 cents per foot, with a minimum charge as well. If money is no object, that's the way to go. However, if you want to do it inexpensively, then continue reading.

Step 2: If you have 8mm films, chances are that you also have an 8mm projector. If you have Super 8 film, chances are you already have a Super 8 projector. If you don't know what type of film you have and you don't have a projector, take a look at my store index and you will see a category on how to identify the difference between Regular 8mm film and Super 8 film. A Dual 8 projector will show both sizes of film. You can select any of these types of old vintage projectors from my store by choosing the Film & Slide Projectors category from that same index. Then, look under the sub-categories listed to find which used projectors are presently available for purchase.

Once you have your projector set up and operating, you can begin by projecting the images on a flat, white, smooth surface. A wall isn't generally good because the textured surface blurs the image. Use a white art board and project the image to a width of about two feet. Much larger and you'll reduce the quality.

Sometimes it is very good to buy a vintage projector that has a variable motor speed feature. This will help eliminate the 'bar syndrome' on some video cameras as you can sync the speed of the projector with that of the video camera.

Step 3: Now set your video camera on a tripod on a level with the projector's lens, and as close to the projector as possible. Then simply video tape the entire 8mm film, Super 8 or 16mm films that you want to convert by capturing the screen image (projected image) with your video camera. Don't worry about bad portions of the film - you'll be able to edit those out later in your computer.

Quality in resolution can be improved by purchasing a video transfer box. These black boxes have a mirror inside set at an angle so one can point your video cam direct at the screen. I sometimes have these boxes for sale used in my store. Check under the projector accessory category on the main index.

Step 4: Now transfer the video tapes from your camera to your computer's movie maker program. For example, Apple Computers come with an iMovie program. Microsoft has a program available at no charge also called Movie Maker. Using your movie maker software, you can now edit your video, add titles, credits, and sound. Then as a last step, burn a DVD from your edited video.
