Re: 8MM CINE FILM COPYING TO VIDEO

Touch wood I have not encountered 'burn out' (yet). For transfers use a low wattage bulb 15W or 25W with a sliver of white glass or perspex between the light source and the gate, then your film cannot be burnt. But in adapting the lamp house make sure the projector is unplugged.

Re: 8MM CINE FILM COPYING TO VIDEO

Hi, In theory it's simple, taking 18fps as a starting point. You need a digital or analogue video camera set to 1/50th shutter speed. You set your 3 blade projector to 16.67 [=16&2/3rds] frames per second. Now both projector and cam are synchronised. How does this work? Well if you times the fps...
