By far, the best method for capturing 16mm, super8 and 8mm film to DVD is a frame by frame scan of your film. By using a system that will capture each individual frame of the film to a computer, this will ensure the best possible quality and avoid the frame blur that you will get with traditional methods. After the frames are captured, a frame repetition and pattern is used to duplicate and reinsert frames to convert the film from 18 frames (or other lesser common frame rates) to the 30 frames per second required for standard NTSC DVDs. You will notice the quality difference in particular when you pause your movie and look at a the paused frame. It will be much cleaner and clearer when the film is captured with a frame by frame capture system.
