Re: 8mm film scanners

Tom. You asked if I had any results of my film scanning. Yes I have transferred two 40 year old films and have recently included them in a show I gave at Newcastle ACA. The LAS palmas film was easiest to do and the picture quality was very good indeed. The other film of Sanfransisco was quite diffic...

Re: Adobe premiere pro CS6 rubber bands

Hi Peter. Thanks for your reply. I know about Audio Gain and have used it several times. For me it has a drawback in that it cannot be used whilst listening to the audio track and so it slows me up when I have over fifty different audio clips on the time line. I have to guess the amount of increase ...

Adobe premiere pro CS6 rubber bands

Hi. I don't know if I'm using the right terminology but I refer to the thin line that adjusts the volume on each audio track on the timeline. My problem is that at 92 my eyes are not very sharp and as the line is a pale yellow in colour against a white background I am not always can see it when I ma...

Re: 8mm film scanners

Hi Tom. I have discovered a disturbing fact regarding the guarantee of the film scanner. It would appear that this warrantee only lasts until the meter reads 200 . Even a simple test to find the right settings covering a few feet of film is registered on the meter as 1. I have only made two films wi...

Re: 8mm film scanners

Hi Tom. I have for my sins bought a REFLECTA scanner, It would seem that nearly all these scanners are made by the same factory in China. However I must say that the quality of the image made by the scanner is a vast improvement on the method I have previously used. The difference between the two ve...

Re: adobe premiere capture device

Thanks Dave for your input. Not that I'm clever enough to act on the info. I was wondering that since the capture device is not operating with the Panasonic cam. on two Pc's I wonder id it is the camera at fault. I wonder if the firewire socket on the camera is at fault. I say this because I have tr...

Re: 8mm film scanners

Tom. I forgot to mention that the LAS PALMAS film was transferred to VHS recorder as I had no online facilities and no PC. Years later when it was possible I transferred the VHS recording to Premiere pro, made a ISO copy with Encore and then burnt a DVD with IMGburn. I notice that Widescreen centre ...

Re: 8mm film scanners

Tom. I have in fact transferred 8mm films to DVD and BD's for many years. I started by using a video cam camcorder onto a a film projected on a white screen. I then used a gadjet that allowed you to project the film via a mirror onto a fresnal screen. The camcorder was then filmed from the fresnal s...
