Converting film reel to DVD is complicated and time-taking process.
First, the 8mm film should be cleaned with a non-chemical cleaner such as the one made by Kodak just for these old fragile 8mm or 16mm film. This is a very important Super 8 to usb step so all particles and dust grains are removed for the cleanest transfer.
Next, the 8mm film is then passed through a professional-grade projector such as the RCA TP-66, which has a video camera mounted on the front . This step converts your 8mm film to DVD format. These professional-grade projectors are very heavy (weighing hundreds of pounds) and are the same ones used by TV stations broadcast many of your favorite movies. The TP-66 also minimizes flicker because it uses a sophisticated technique to synchronize film to video, avoiding that jumping in film which is what causes flicker.
Adjusting The Light
While the conversion is taking place, manually control the color, gain and brightness by adjusting th elight. The built in feed back loop between the camera and projector allows the image to be dimmed or brightened based on the amount of light projected into the video camera during the 8mm film transfer. Further, if the film always has a scene that needs light and every film always has that one dark scene - you should shoot more light through the film so that the finished video on the DVD appears brighter. If you take the time to do this right, the appearance of your original films can actually be improved when converted to DVD.

The video and audio content is processed through digital noise reduction filters and the quality is always better on a new DVD than on original film. Next, if it's a long film, divide the film into chapters and create menus so a person playing the DVD can skip from one chapter to another easily.
Finally, choose backgrounds, add titles, and select background music for your new home movie DVD. Now your DVD is ready to be popped into any player for the whole Super 8 to usbfamily to relive the memories. Don't forget to bring a box of tissues.
