The Movie DVD has come a long way since way back when. Before the 2000’s, most DVD’s were merely the movie and a title menu, nothing more. Now, the extras are where it is at. Despite double dipping, there are many DVD’s that are almost worth it just for the extras. This means, if a movie sucks, the extras might be enough to still be a worthy buy.
Convert 8mm Film to Digital or film to digital transfer is a fairly candid technique. It’s done in a lab, with the film being transferred to a video tape using the Elmo film chain. This device is similar to what was used during the 1990s to show movies on television. What happens is that the old film is sent into a box loaded with mirrors and lenses. This projects the film to a video camera to be recorded and stored in a digital format.
Six. Rewind the tape back towards the beginning, and then press perform. Quickly immediately after pressing play, hit record on the DVR and now your video might be recorded for the DVR’s challenging generate.
Using the camera on the computer and software, you can start creating films on your own. You may have documented a few events and happenings in your life or you may have done so as part of your gigs. Either way, the files on AVI are limited in viewing. They need an appropriate media player to view them.
There is a trick I use when going to manual exposure at an event such as a stage performance or a wedding. Let the automation help you! Before going to manual exposure, zoom in tight on an important face that is lit pretty much as you expect will be common throughout the event. The camcorder should adjust its exposure to a nice mid-point of the light on that face. Then flip the manual exposure feature on. Normally this will “lock-in” the automatic setting that you trust is OK. Do not turn the manual exposure knob — the camcorder is set to the desired value. You are now free to zoom wide and pan around the room knowing that a bright window in the background won’t close the camera’s lens down and black holes won’t cause the faces of the main stars to blister out.
MAKING YOUR FIRST MOVIE: Shooting your film is the most fun, and most important part of production. Here’s the beginning to end process as I see it, it is not difficult, complex or highly intellectual: it simply needs to be fun and effective. The first thing you’ll want to do, no matter how simple you think your movie will be, is write a script. The script is what separates the professionals from the weekend hobbyist. Even if it is a 5 minute short, write a script.
I recommend the Onkyo TX-SR605 and the TX-SR805 as they are the best values going. They feature clean, strong amplifiers and decoding for PCM/LPCM, Dolby TrueHD, and DTS-HD MA. The 90 watts-per-channel TX-SR605 is available for $400 street price and the 130 watts-per-channel TX-SR805 for $750 street price. Opt for the 705 if you have a large room needing more power than the 605 or if you want its automatic setup features.
