I was reading on the 8mm forum where they discussed archiving digital movies onto film.
"I work for the industry actually and i can assure you that all the digital files are transferred to film, all the serious people in the industry and some serious executivein Hollywoodknows that digital files dont last. Film is the only way to go for preserving for centuries,actually we work with fuji eterna that can survive for more than 300years,to record digital images on black and white film, the images are first separated into red, green, and blue signal data, which are then exposed and recorded onto three separate films. In other words, one digital master is saved onto three black and white films. The full-color images can be easily and precisely reproduced to the exact standards as the originals by scanning and digitally compositing the separate images or optically exposing them directly onto film."
What about archiving the indie digital movies on films? It must be expensive and only practical for the major productions.
Did they ever develop something similar for making negs or chromes from digital still photos to archive? I know they have inkjet film, but I am talking about wet process film.
