8mm to DVD
on Feb 7, 2007 at 5:59:24 pm

I have a client who wants to digitize some 8mm footage the quick and easy way. I figure I'll project it and video tape that. What should I project it on (white wall or screen) and is there anything I should take into account besides Frame rate?

I think you'll have enough trouble dealing with frame rate and flicker. Project on a screen in a dark room. Use a tripod, obviously. How do you plan on doing sound? Do your client's films have an optical sound track? Keep an eye on the film to make sure it won't seize up in the projector and the lamp won't burn a nice hole in one of the frames.
