In Topic: Questions re 9.5mm film scanning, scan-rate, shadow detail, ProRes 4444 vs 42...

07 February 2018 - 04:17 AM

Good day Guy, i have a frame by frame scanner for 9,5mm too.It is 2560x2048 pixel uncompressed TIFF output in a folder image sequence. From this image sequence you can convert in whatever video format of your choice. I charge 1 Euro/meter.Are your 2000 feet( 609 meters)  loaded in a single big reel ? My scanner can load 120 meters max, but i have not problem to customize for bigger reel.

In Topic: Super 8 wetgate Transfer to HD. Who does this?

21 October 2017 - 10:28 AM

Well, i do a sort of wet gate with diffuse light too. To me diffuse light helps with my sysyem since i have tested collimated light with worse achievement . I soak the film with vaseline oil then pass trough mechanical cleaning system. This way dust and dirt are removed and the film remains wet. Finally i scan the film emulsion for the highest quality. I can scan from sd to 2.5k  to image sequence. This system works best with reversal, with negative film the difference is not noticeable aside dust and dirt removed.

Here a brief description. (hem , the voice is robot,sorry for some weird pronunciation)

In Topic: Does anyone here have anything BAD to say about Ultra 16?

12 October 2017 - 10:29 AM

I have done conversion on all my Bolexes and never noticed steadyness issues after. The exposed area is the same more or less, the main difference is the wider aspect ratio vs S16 frame. The main issue are the codes on the side between perforations, so you can not scan all frame width.
