TRUE Single Frame Digital Motion Picture Film Scanning™ (Transfer) - one frame scanned at-a-time

Each frame of the film is stopped, scanned and advanced to the next frame. Each frame can take seconds to scan not frames scanned in seconds...this is TRUE single frame film transfers.

8mm, 16mm & 35mm film that requires an output to SD or HD is scanned in 2K and output to your choice in SD, HD or 2K resolution and available in a variety of file types depending on your requirements. 4K & 5K is scanned and output in their native resolution formats.

NOTE: - If you have damaged film visit:

A single frame of Super 8mm film scanned in HD from our TMTVISION Digital Motion Picture Film Scanner. Click on the photo for a larger image.

Film scanning of 8mm, Super 8mm, Super 16, 16mm silent or sound or 35mm silent, colour, B&W or negative motion picture films for home movies, the professional movie maker or for our film recovery, restoration and archival services. Film is scanned (transferred) and can be output to several file formats for computer viewing and editing or we can create HD Blu Ray DVD or SD DVD.

Film is scanned Flat (what we also call Raw), however, we do provide "Best Light" exposure, light "Grain" reduction, mid "Shadow" detail and White "balance") each frame of film is individually scanned, uncompressed onto our hard drives. Once there, we can view the scanned files immediately and then export them in standard definition (SD), high definition (HD) or 2K, 4K, 5K compressed or uncompressed files and placed on a portable hard drive that can be plugged into your non-linear computer edit system (NLE) and then edited. There are options to provide post scene by scene color and exposure/density correction and exported as a completed movie in various files of your choice or make DVD or Blu Ray HD Master discs for playback and distribution.

After scanning, we can export your transferred movies to several file formats for either PC or Mac: 1) M-JPEG .MOV QUICK TIME, 2) NUMBERED IMAGE SEQUENCE IN JPEG, PNG, BMP OR TIFF IMAGES 3) AVI files.

EXPORT FILE TYPES FOR SD, HD, 2K. Contact us for options on 4K & 5K movie film scanning.



1) .MOV QUICK TIME video files in the MOTION JPEG (M-JPEG) codec.

Though sometimes conversationally mistaken for the MPEG codec, please note that the "M"-JPEG codec is NOT the same thing as MPEG. The preferred M-JPEG codec maintains individual data for each frame of film on a separate digital video frame while the MPEG codec uses information from preceding video frames to fill in missing information on the next video frame.

2) NUMBERED IMAGE SEQUENCE - each frame of movie film is a still image

SAMPLE OF: Numbered image sequences, otherwise known as Individual Image Frames or Image Sequences (sequential still image files) what we call NIS files. This jpeg image frame was originally scanned RAW (with no colour or exposure correction) at 24 bit in High Definition. The FLAT or RAW images here, have been reduced in size for display on the website.  We do provide "Best Light" exposure, light "Grain" reduction, mid "Shadow" detail and White "balance"). Any additional major effects such as scene-by-scene colour/exposure "correction" should be manipulated in post with either a video editing program or a photo program such as Photoshop™when using still image frames.

A folder with every frame of film scanned FLAT/RAW on an individual, digital still/image frame that is numbered sequentially. These frames can be in JPEG, TIFF, PNG, or BMP in SD or HD or HD2K. (Most common file types used by our clients are JPEG or TIFF).

Individual selected frames can be used to e-mail or create photographic prints.


AVI in SD or HD

These are compressed video files called, Audio-Video Interleaved (AVI) file used for editing in a computer or viewing in standard Windows format viewing software and compatible Mac software. We can output AVI in both HD or SD.


DVD & BLU RAY: We can create a "movie" from your films on DVD in standard definition or Blu-ray Disc in high definition with main titles & direct to disc printing for playing on your DVD or Blu Ray home player or Mac, PC NLE system with a DVD or Blu Ray disc drive. Maximum content for SD on a 4.7GB DVD-R is one hour and maximum content in HD on a 25GB Blu Ray DVD is 1 and a 1/2 hours per disc. NOTE: these are for playback & viewing only and you can not extract or copy files from a DVD or Blu Ray disc.

Exported "files" can be on a portable hard drive, SD card, USB thumb/flash drive or DVD M-Disc for file storage, archiving and later use. NOTE: Depending on your file choice, exported files can be very large and take up a considerable amount of storage space. USB flash drives, SD cards and DVDs are limited by the amount of file storage that can be placed on these three media drives. The BEST option for file storage when dealing with a large amount of files, is a portable "plug and play" 3.0 USB hard drive.

Movie files are NTSC video (North America and Japan) but we can output to PAL.




Safe on film: The film scanner features a safe scan zero image area contact at the gate and rubber guide rollers that handle the film only by the edges for maximum film safety. No sprockets, no advance claw, no capstan, no pinch roller, no belts, means no film damage. These custom built Digital Film Transfer Scanner Systems are also used for our Film Recovery, Archival and Restoration scanning (transfer) service.

Whether you need SD (standard def), 1080p HD (high def), 2K, 4K, 5K, all films are scanned uncompressed. Files are then exported to your choice of format from the original uncompressed scans for maximum clarity.  

SETTINGS FOR SCANNING: Our system will be white balanced during transfer along with Best Light exposure, light Grain reduction, mid Shadow detail and we will set auto exposure. All file formats, NIS (Numbered Image Sequence), .MOV & AVI FILE formats will have color and brightness that can be enjoyed "as is". But final brightness, contrast & gamma along with RGB control and color correction can be performed on your edit system to suit your personal taste. NOTE: If you are having TMTV create and edit a completed DVD,  BluRay disc or a "Completed" converted file after transfer, all footage can be colour, exposure, grain reduction, dust removal and density corrected by our Colorist at additional cost. Otherwise you discs or files will be RAW FILES as explained above.

SOUND FILM: Create WAV or PCM audio files from our Optical Sound Reader for 16mm or Optical/Magnetic Sound Reader for Super 8 with single or two track sound in real time from the audio track of the motion picture. NOTE: Currently we can handle only silent 35mm film.

Uncompressed WAV files are created at 48bit quality for both right and left channels. Audio WAV FILES allows for immediate use in any editing program or archival storage. We can provide complete audio restoration and re-master from the magnetic or optical sound strip (track) from Super8mm or optical sound track from 16mm film and the WAV audio file can then be synchronized with the scanned film to create a completed sound movie. THE AUDIO CAN BE ENHANCED BY REMOVING CLICKS, POPS AND CRACKLES, CLEAN & BOOST LOW AUDIO. If you are choosing us to edit your film, the sound track can then be replaced back with the film to produce clean, clear audio to go along with your moving pictures. Otherwise we can simply supply the WAV Audio Files or a .MOV sound and/or a picture reference video file for you to edit on your editing program.



FILM CONDITION BEFORE SCANNING (TRANSFER) - CLEANING & LUBRICATION: Single Frame Digital Motion Picture Film Scanning™  All films are prepped before transfer to repair bad splices and to look for potential bad film, then cleaned using our Kinetronics StaticVac Anti-Static Film Cleaner system. After cleaning all films are lubricated and a preservative added. If your film is in excellent condition, lubrication & preservatives may not be required, in this case we will only perform cleaning using the Kinetronics StaticVac. This would be determined during visual inspection when the films arrive at the lab.

OUR FILM CLEANING SYSTEM USED PRIOR TO LUBRICATION AND PRESERVATIVES: The Kinetronics StaticVac Anti-Static Film Cleaner is a vacuum cleaner to be used on film. It utilizes an electronic "bipolar" ionizing system. The StaticVac produces both positive and negative ions for complete static elimination. It will clean all film sizes up to 70mm (2.75"), including 35 mm, 120, and APS. As the film is passed through the StaticVac, the ionization system gets rid of the static on the film. Then, the gentle StaticWisk brushes wipe dust and lint away. The vacuum action draws the dust and lint into the foam filter. Even digital ICE tool software does not replace the StaticVac film cleaner for the removal of dust from both sides of your film prior to scanning.

WET GATE SCANNING: In the past we have used a "Wet Gate" as an option. We have found that this solution does provide a good alternative to cleaning and minor scratch removal however, we have found that in most cases Wet Gate provides a softer image and loss of detail in the scanned image. Using cleaners, lubricants and preservatives during the preparation of your film works much better then Wet Gate. There are alternatives to using Wet Gate such as digital software enhancements including scratch and dust removal in post that we feel works much better then Wet gate during scanning.

FILM RECOVERY & RESTORATION: Films that are in poor condition such as bent, warped or brittle will have to be put through our recovery process and can only be transferred by digital scanning to avoid further damage to the film. Click here if you think your film requires "Recovery" or Restoration.  

PROCESSING TIME: Average processing time for TMTVISION Digital Single Frame Scanning is 5 business days. This does does however depend on how large your order is and how busy the lab is at the time of your films arrival at our lab. Please contact us before sending in your footage for specific delivery times, especially if you are facing a tight deadline for a particular project. RUSH ORDERS CAN BE ACCEPTED but this depends on current work load and the size of your order. This would determine the length of time it takes for transfer. Additional charges apply for rush orders. We have several scanners to handle large orders in a short period of time.

NOTE: Customer supplied media must meet our specifications for ANY file formats. Please contact us BEFORE sending or including your media with your order.

Once we have scanned your film, we record it onto your choice of media. When choosing your recording media, it is helpful to think of your film in terms of data. More data means more quantity. A hard drive stores the most data, which is why we highly recommend having your films transferred to an archival file format and those files placed on a portable hard drive. Saying that, you then need the computer and hardware to be able to handle the large files, the computer software and knowledge to be able to edit your films that gives you the freedom to rearrange scenes, and add titles and or music and then export to your desired viewable file or media.

HARD DRIVE: For file storage. Are pre-formatted in NTFS (not Mac/Fat32 or EXFAT) on a portable, plug and play 3.0 Superspeed USB hard drive.

IMPORTANT: Customer Supplied Drives: You may provide your own new portable hard drive, it must be: USB 3.0 "PLUG AND PLAY" MAC & PC compatible but currently formatted for NTFS. The drive must not require a power source (AC) to make your drive operate...hence "Plug and Play". Your drive must have adequate space to hold your files. Good practice allows for 40% open headroom on all video drives. Attention: The reliability and integrity of client supplied drives is the SOLE responsibility of the client and will be subject to file loading fees and there are no warranties associated with customer supplied drives other then what is provided by the drive manufacturer.

Approximate file size for your consideration if providing your own hard drive.

A 3 inch roll of film = 50 feet.   A 5 inch roll of film = 200 feet.   A 7 inch roll of film = 400 feet. 

50 foot reel of 8mm in SD = 1.6 GB to 2 GB.

100 foot reel of 16mm in SD = 1.6 GB to 2 GB.

50 foot reel of 8mm in HD = 4 to 5 GB.

100 foot reel of 16mm in HD = 4 to 5 GB

50 foot reel of 8mm in 2K = 5 to 7 GB.

100 foot reel of 16mm in 2K = 5 to 7 GB.

The above are estimates only.

Before requesting an estimate by e-mail for your film project please prepare a physical description of your film as best you can. You may also send the film to our lab for a complete hands-on inspection and no obligation quote.

Please supply the following:


Phone Number:


How you heard about TMTV?

What is the format of your film; Regular 8mm, Super 8mm, 16mm or 35mm?

Does the film have a sound track? (99% of Regular/double 8mm film is silent, some Super 8mm or 16mm film could have a sound track). If you see a brown strip or stripe on either 16mm or Super 8mm in could be sound. If your 16mm has sprocket holes on one side of the film only and not both sides there could be an optical sound track or magnetic sound track (brown stripe). If you don't know we will check for this during our inspection process.

Do you know the original recording speed of your film?

What is the approximate date? (This helps determine the type of film and possible condition).

Approximately how long is each reel? measured in feet or reel size. (See chart sizes above).

Is the film colour or black and white?

Is it negative or positive film? (8mm and Super 8mm is usually positive film).

Is the film on reels or cores? 8mm and Super 8mm film would normally be on reels. Some 16mm & 35mm may be on cores.

What file format do you require? IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT FILE FORMAT YOU REQUIRE AT THIS TIME DON'T WORRY, WE CAN HELP YOU WITH THIS DECISION. There are MANY options including: 2K, 1080p High Definition (HD), Standard Definition (SD) in the following file formats including; Numbered Image Sequence Images (NIS), .MOV, AVI, DVD in SD, Blu Ray in 1080p HD masters and/or copies. We can create copies of the masters for distribution to family and friends. The DVDs we create are not copy protected so you can make your own copies if you wish. Make sure you only make copies from the master to maintain quality.

IF wanting DVD masters will you want to add titles, credits, menus or other introductory material to the masters and copies?


FILM CONDITION: The films physical condition is important for us to provide an accurate estimate. Film can be in various condition from excellent, poor to very poor and film requiring "Recovery" if warped, curled, vinegar syndrome, white powder (mold), brittle or damaged by flood or fire. Please check your films condition and provide, as-best-as-possible an accurate description. If you have questions in regards to film damage or you suspect that your film is damaged please let us know. You can also email us photos.

Does your film smell like vinegar or have a bad odor, warped, shrunk, brittle, twisted? Then your film may need recovery before transfer. GO TO:

All film is inspected, prepped and minor repairs including replace splices for our scanning system as required, along with cleaning your film through three processes that include ultrasonic cleaning, lubrication and preservatives as required are included in the cost of our scanning. Films requiring new reels, leader, "major" repairs or extra cleaning, additional charges may apply.

The film will be inspected upon arrival to our lab and if there are any major issues we will contact you before proceeding.

FREE FILM INSPECTION: You may ship your films to us for a complete hands-on inspection and quote with no obligation. If you choose not to have your films restored, cleaned or transferred after inspection by our technicians you would only pay for the shipping to and from our lab.

SUBMITTING ORDERS TO THE LAB: If you choose to send films to our lab for transfer please e-mail or phone us before sending so we can make sure you are fully informed about the process, the options available and shipping instructions.

When submitting film to the lab please number them CLEARLY in order of sequence, Example: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. (do not use POST-IT Notes, they fall off). If you do not know their sequence please number them anyway for reference on quantity.

MIXING FILM FORMATS: R-8MM, S-8MM, 16MM with or without sound: If you have a mixture of different film formats (a combination of R-8mm, Super8, Super8 with sound or 16mm) we request that you do not mix the formats when numbering your films in the order of transfer (or splice R 8mm with Super 8mm) if possible. If you require us to switch between formats for particular reels adds significantly to the transfer time and could result in an additional service charge. To avoid this simply ensure that the order of your transfer places all reels of a certain format together (R-8mm & Super8, Super8 with sound, 16mm or 16mm with sound respectively).

PAYMENT A deposit may be required in advance of scheduling digital film scanning transfers. Once your films arrive at the lab, we will inspect your films and provide a complete no obligation quote.
