Transferring your cine film to HD QuickTime ProRes 422 Files

 

We can now transfer your old cine films (super 8, standard 8mm & 16mm) to a set of HD digital files. You would need to
supply us with a portable USB hard drive so we can copy the large files onto for you. For quality we find QuickTime Pro Res 422 to be the most suitable format to supply. As your cine films are in the old 4:3 (square ratio) and HD formats are 16:9 (widescreen) your file will be presented with black bars at the both sides of the image, rather than top and bottom. You can find out more about transferring your home movies to HD Digita files here. This service is only provided for Super 8, 8mm and 16mm film, not standard def video tapes.

The photo above shows an example of the cine film frame formatted within 16:9 ratio.
