I see several other methods available.  What are the differences?
Film transfer on our custom engineered Ultra High Definition Rank Cintel scanners is by far superior.
We've taken our large collection of Rank Cintel Scanners and improved their scanning resolution by
over 600%. These upgrades produce images that the original engineers could only have dreamed
about.    Here is a description of the different service types that you will find:
Best Method (Our Method):
Rank Cintel modified Ultra High Definition Scanner
This is what Hollywood uses for their motion pictures!


All film is digitally scanned at resolutions substantially higher then
1080p as it runs through the scanner.  Unlike a film projector,
there is no heat from a light bulb, no stopping and starting your
film on each frame, no pressure plate that can scratch your film,
and no unnecessary handling of your film.  A highly sophisticated
optical gate acquires the images from the film, which are then
adjusted and refined digitally, pixel-by-pixel.


What makes MyMovieTransfer.com the best?
We go even further.  Your film transfer will be on our Ultra High
Definition  Rank Cintel  scanner with MetaSpeed.   Additionally,
you benefit from our newly designed
High Definition Optics.  
Our skilled scanner operators or colorists, constantly monitor
your film while it is being scanned, continually monitoring your
light levels, similar to a scene-by-scene transfer.  Our colorists
use the
High Definition DMG Color Corrector to make the
necessary color, and brightness adjustments to the red, green,
blue, white, black, and mid tones (gamma) of your film. The level
and depth of color correction that can be done as the film is
being scanned is simply impossible with other transfer methods.

The Worst Methods:

Projector & Camera
Is just that.  Projecting your film onto a wall or screen, then recording off the wall with a video
camera.

Film Transfer Box.
Same as above, instead of a wall, it is achieved in a box with a mirror.  Something you can find at a
Wal-Mart.

Film Chain.
Another device with a motion picture projector and a video camera. Usually a surplus RCA-TP66
from a local television station. Local TV stations used these to project movies, and filmed news
stories from the 1950's to the late 1970's. They were fairly reliable but never produced great
pictures. All the TP-66s were  replaced by the 1980's when television stations received all movies
for broadcast on video tape. Those videotapes were much higher quality film transfers done on
Rank Cintel telecines usually in Los Angeles or New York.

Anyone who cannot explain exactly what they are doing with your films.
They may say it is a proprietary secret, but we would recommend caution.  There is no reason why
they cannot explain how their process works without giving you "secret" information.

Aerial Image.
Similar to a film chain. Uneven illumination and hot spots in the transfer. Optical problems.
Inferior Methods:
Frame by Frame
Very similar to Projector & Camera.  Instead of running your
film, each frame is projected, captured with a camera
(hopefully digital), then linked together like a chain.  If they
are using a projector bulb, you risk damage to your film.  
The heat from the bulb can damage your film if it is left on
too long, which can be only a few seconds.
"I have to tell you that I
was amazed at the
sharpness and clarity of
the transfer. I was really
floored from the first few
seconds because the
colors really jumped out."

"Prior to using your group,
I had some film
transferred by another
company, but the
transfers that you did for
me proved how superior
your technique is - there
was no comparison in the
color quality and
stabilization."
-  Cathey W.

"I can't believe
the clarity from
a 50-year old
8mm film."
