Processing is the chemical bath that film goes through to make what you shot an image. It washes away the burned emulsion and produces an image. Also known as developing.

In order for your 16mm footage to be viewed on a computer, the reels of developed film must first be transferred to video, preferably to a digital video format. The process of transferring movie film to video is called 'telecine.' For a good quality telecine, the majority of people use either a Rank or Spirit machine. There is a thread about the costs of telecine on the 'Telecine & DI' section of this forum.

There are inexpensive transfer houses as well. One that I've used is Film and Video Services at 612-789-8622.
