Film to DVD Conversion Process
It takes 3 steps to get film to DVD. First the film is converted by LED process to disc and during this process it is monitored for focus, light/dark images, then the digital disc is loaded in our computer system and the reels are meshed together and our tech goes through and cleans up the film images removing any bad areas, the last step in the process is to add our opening, titles, and music for your completed film to DVD transfer.
Any digital material can be transferred to an external Hard Drive or Flash Drive at our $10/hr rate.
