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
2400%. These
upgrades produce images that the original engineers could only have
dreamed about.
Below are descriptions 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 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
scanners 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."
- Tom S.

"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.
  Harahan, LA
"I can't believe the
clarity from a 50

year old 8mm film."
