I have some old super 8mm film I want to re-convert to DVD. There's no sound, which may be an advantage, this allows me to record at one speed, then adjust the speed using Adobe Premeire Pro.
I have an old supper 8mm projector, but may end up renting or buying a new one. The main thing is my old one has variable speed, but there's no way to tell the exact speed it's going, so I may obtain a new (or used one).
What I have now is a Sony HC1 HDV camcorder and a Sony TRV50 Hi-8 camcorder, but I assume the HC1 would be better to use. Both camcorders have 1394 interfaces, and I have Adobe Premeire Pro 2.0, and fast enough system for recording and editting videos on.
What I did last time was to project the film onto a screen with a camcorder recording the image off the screen. The main issue is some pulsing of the light, but I'm hoping with a slower shutter speed, this can be reduced. I'm not sure if there's some feature in Adobe Premier Pro that would help here.
I've seen some setups that appear to reflect an image from the projector onto the equivalent of a small rear projector screen, but I wonder if this fuzzes up the picture.
What I'm looking for is some advice on what type of setup would be best for converting film to video (and then to DVD), assuming I don't have the budget for some high end equipment that does one frame at a time.
