Example resolutions

Beeldverbeteringen

Bij het digitaliseren van uw films kunt u ook voor beeldverbeteringen kiezen. Hierbij worden de beelden gecorrigeerd op helderheid, beeldstabilisatie, kleuren, scherpte, ruis, vuil en vlekken waardoor het resultaat mooier wordt.

Zie de voorbeeldscans hieronder voor voorbeelden. Wij rekenen hiervoor een toeslag van € 0,75 per minuut.

Schimmelreiniging

Indien de te scannen films vlekken hebben die door schimmels zijn veroorzaakt, kunnen wij de films speciaal reinigen. Met onze schimmelreinigingsmachine kunnen we tussen de 85% en 100% van de vlekken uit de films halen. Zie de voorbeeldscans hieronder voor voorbeelden. Wij rekenen hiervoor een toeslag van €2,25 per minuut. Indien er schimmel op een spoel met film staat, dient de hele spoel ontschimmeld te worden.

Ook is het mogelijk om alleen uw films op schimmel te laten reinigen zonder deze te laten digitaliseren. Extra kosten hiervoor (bovenop de toeslag per minuut) is €7,50 per spoel.

Opmerking: schimmel is niet met filmreiniger te verwijderen uit films!

Schimmels komen vaak voor op films van Agfa.

Wetgate

Wetgate scannen: hiermee worden krassen of verticale lijnen in de film bij het scannen verwijderd.

Met behulp van een wetgate pomp wordt een dun laagje Isopropanol op de film aangebracht, net voordat de film het scan venster passeert.

Door dit dun laagje vloeistof worden krasjes in de film opgevuld en zijn die een stuk minder zichtbaar tijdens het scannen. Voordat de film weer op de rol komt, is de vloeistof verdampt en heeft verder geen invloed op de film.

De toeslag voor wetgate scannen is € 0,50 per minuut film.

 

Choices in cropping the film

With our scanners, we can scan the entire film image. No information/edges drop out during scanning.

You can choose from

  1. Full format Overscan. In this, all the information of the image is visible. Includes image that belongs outside the standard projector frame, including perforation holes. Film markings such as KODAK K40 etc. in the edges are also visible here.
  2. Matted (image normally visible when projected, with black edges on the sides)

By default, we deliver the films in Matted.

Our process

Preparation, scanning and output.

  • Every film gets an unique number.
  • If you deliver several small films (15 meter films), they will be put on large reels (120 meter) one after the other.
  • If absent, a film leader will be attached to the film.
  • The films are cleaned and any bad welds are repaired.
  • If necessary, we can remove mold from films. This is an option.
  • Scanning is done image by image and (stereo) sound is transferred lip-synchronously. Wetgate is an option.
  • After scanning and applying optional image enhancements, the images are delivered in the desired digital format.
  • Each scanned coil becomes a digital file.
  • You can then edit these files yourself afterwards.

Technique

  • We scan 8mm and super8 films with the Filmfabriek Pictor and Pictor Pro. The Pictor has a maximum resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. and the Pictor Pro has a maximum resolution of 2728 x 1536 pixels.
  • Wetgate scanning is optional to minimize vertical scratch marks.
  • Normal scan and overscan is possible. In case of overscan, the perforations of the film are also visible and the markings on the edge of the film.
  • We offer fungal removal (mostly common on super8 films)
  • Each frame will get a separate recording.
  • We can handle every speed in which the film is recorded (for example 16, 18 or 24 frames per second).
  • If there is sound (mono or stereo) on the film it will be transferred too.

Frequently Asked Questions – 8mm cine film

I do not know how my projector works. Do you also have manuals?

We have manuals available for most projectors. See our spare part finder.

Could I request a sample scan?

Yes, that is possible. You can request your free sample scan here.

Can I still edit the digitized film (or have it edited) afterwards?

Yes, you can edit the film yourself. More info: Editing video files – with free software.

We can also do the editing for you. In consultation we can change the order of films, cut out pieces, add music, etcetera.

When copying large files I get an error message

The problem when a large video file cannot be copied is usually that the file system of the hard disk or USB stick is still in FAT32 format. Files larger than 4GB cannot be stored on a FAT32 volume. Formatting the flash drive in the exFAT or NTFS file system will solve this problem.

You can find more information about this:

Can I still buy double8 / super8 / 16mm films?

Yes, you can! Kodak has even reintroduced new Kodak Reversal color film in 2018. In the Netherlands you can go to super8.nl.

Can I still have super8 films developed?

Yes indeed, that can still be done. There are still a number of specialized laboratories that do this. We work with super8.com ourselves. For newly shot films, this is still very affordable!

This is also possible for films that have passed their sell-by date, although it is a bit more expensive (
€ 100,= per film of 15 meter.
). Also, the quality of these will generally be lower. These films can often only be developed in black and white. Due to the long lying of the undeveloped film, the images often become very blurred.

Does it pay to put my own movies on DVD?

It is possible to digitize your 8mm films yourself. However, the quality achieved is considerably less than if it is done professionally. For more information on how to transfer your own films, see our page about digitizing your own films.

What to do with soured films?

Somebody told me that if I take soured films through a projector and play a non-soured film through the projector afterwards, the non-soured film will also sour. Is that true? Is a soured film contagious? Is there anything you can do about it, like clean the film?

That is definitely a risk. When a film is soured (acetata decay, vinegar syndrome) the substance “acetic acid” is released (smells like vinegar). This substance can affect other films. Cleaning films with vinegar syndrome does not help.

The decay of the film can be slowed down by storing the film in a cold place (preferably in the freezer). Special bags can also be placed in the film cans to slow down the acidification process: Kodak Molecular Sieve.
It is best to copy or digitize this film directly.

For more information, see the film preservation guide.

What kind of cine film do I have?

Type of film

Click here for examples of single-8/super-8, normal-8, 9.5mm and 16mm film.
For more detailed information on types of films: www.filmcollector.nl (Dutch).

Can I rent a projector or movie viewer so I can watch which films I want to digitize?

Yes, you can. We rent and sell film viewers and film projectors.

How many minutes of film are on my reels?

This depends on a number of factors, including the number of frames per second (18 or 24), whether it is normal8 or super8, and so on.
Below is the table for the most commonly used format (18 frames per second and super8):

Reel diameter Minutes
7 centimeter 3,5 minutes
13 centimeter 14 minutes
18 centimeter 28 minutes
21 centimeter 40 minutes
25 centimeter 53 minutes

Click here for the complete table with the duration of films (Dutch).

What type of 8mm film do I have?

There are two types of 8mm films:

1) super8 / single8

super8 films
super8/single8 film format

super8 films are usually put on coils with an inner diameter of 12 mm

2) regular8 (also called: normal8, standard8)

Double
Regular 8 film (also called standard 8 or just 8mm film)

regular8 films are usually put on coils with an inner diameter of 8 mm

USB stick is not working on TV

Sometimes a USB flash drive with video files does not play properly on a TV.
If this is the case, please contact us. Please provide the TV brand and type number, then we can solve the problem for you.
If you are technical, you can often solve the problem yourself. Here are some tips:
  • The USB stick is not recognized: TVs sometimes cannot handle all formats of USB sticks. Sometimes they cannot read NTFS or exFAT. You can find out which format USB sticks your TV can read in its manual.
    If that is the case, you can create a USB stick in the correct format and transfer the video files to it.
  • The USB stick is recognized, but the (video) files do not play properly. We create the files in a format that plays well on as many TVs as possible. However, some (old) TV’s may not be able to play the files in this format. In the manual of your TV you can find which formats / codecs are supported. These video files need to be transferred to a format that is playable on your TV.

Which video codec (.h264 / Prores) is suitable for me?

By default, we deliver digitized film in .H264 format. This format is the defacto standard for video. If you want to perform heavy edits such as color correction etc. yourself, we recommend Prores. Read more: http://van-eck.net/en/video-codecs/

Editing digitized video and movies – what programs can I use to do that?

There are several ways to edit digitized videos and films yourself.

For cutting and pasting only, I recommend LosslessCut.The advantage of this program is that the video does not need to be re-encoded and thus no quality is lost. If you want more, such as adding titles, music, transitions, etc. then you need a somewhat more comprehensive program. See here for my top five recommended free video editing programs:

Bewerken van video bestanden

If you have even more requirements, then a paid program is recommended. Some examples: Final cut pro (Apple) and Adobe Premiere / Magix Video for the PC.

Download – not enough free space – adjust download folder

By default, when you download to your c:disk. There is not always enough room there.

In the browser you use, you can set to download to another partition or drive (e.g., external hard drive).

Herewith tips to adjust this setting:

How do I recognize mold on my film?

See the film clip below for this:

If the films to be scanned have stains caused by moulds, we can specially clean the films. With our mould cleaning machine we can remove between 85% and 100% of the stains from the films.

Note: Mold cannot be removed from movies with film cleaner!

Mold is often found on Agfa films, but sometimes on other brands of films such as Kodak or Fuji.
