8mm to DVD? Not Sure What Kind of Film to DVD You Have?


The most common types of film to dvd sizes are 8mm, Super 8mm, & 16mm. The best way to distinguish the different types of film is by looking at the sprocket holes.
  • 16mm film is 5/8" wide with sprocket holes on both sides.
  • 8mm to DVD film is 5/16" and has larger sprocket holes on one side of the film placed directly on the line dividing each frame
  • Super 8mm film is 5/16" and has smaller sprocket holes on one side of the film placed in between the lines dividing each frame.


Method of transfer
The method to transfer film to DVD used at After Image Video Productions, Inc. is called Direct Aerial Transfer. We use Telecine projectors that are designed specifically to synchronize film to DVD video producing a flicker free image. Multiplexers allow us to focus directly on the film as it passes through the film gate providing the sharpest image possible. High quality three-chip studio cameras capture the film image resulting in the least amount of color or sharpness loss. All film is carefully monitored by our technicians as it is transferred assuring film will maintain best focus and brightness.
