View Full Version : 16MM to Video

05-22-1995, 01:30 AM
One of the easiest and cheapest way to transfer 16 mm film to video is
to project the 16 mm film on a white wall or screen and video the
images with a good quality video camera at 60 or 50 fields per second.
Then, advance the 16mm film, frame by frame. This will give you
multiple frames from the 16mm on many video fields. Then you can grab
the proper fields, when you notice the advance frame visually or by
any time mark. It takes about an hour to transfer
approximately 100 16mm frames. You have to make sure that you do not
grab the same frame twice. It is a manual process. However, very
inexpensive and it is insensitive to NTSC or PAL.
