      Hello, I had a question I am sure has been asked by am unable to find an answer.

       

      I am trying to transfer 8mm and Super 8 film to Digital. I am using what I have read is the "amateur" method. One of the issues is frame rates causing scrolling. Which appears to be a regular issue.

       

      Equipment I currently have to do this with.

       

      * Bell and Howell Super 8mm Projector

      * DHC converter

      * JVC Full HD Digital Video Camera

      * Adobe Premiere Elements

      * All proper cabling

       

      Everything is set up, I was able to get the film images clear and can do any cleanup. What I cannot do is get the scrolling out.

       

      I have read that keeping the Digital Video Cam 36 inches away from the screen of the DHC would prevent it from picking up scrolling. However, that isnt working. 

       

      Do I have any options with this equipment short of going out and buying a $3000 converter?

       

      Thanks in advance

      Is your camcorder able to capture @ 24fps?  This might alleviate some or all of the scroll.  I'm glad you brought this up.  I have some footage I was going to attempt the same thing.

       

      There is a company, Scandigital, that does this for a fee.
