MOVIE FILM "RECOVERY & RESTORATION" PROCESSING TIME & FILM RETURN: (This section is for damaged movie film) this depends on the films overall poor condition and the amount of film to be recovered and restored for transfer. NOTE: No rush services available because of the type of process used to recover warped, shrunk or damaged movie film we can not give specific dates for completion. Due to the condition-specific, multi-step process for film recovery, please allow a minimum of 4 weeks, but the process could take several weeks. If you require your warped or shrunk movie films by a specific date, please do not send us your films, due to the reasons explained above. We will do everything possible to recover the films as quickly as possible without risking further damage to the films, but the customer must be patient. There are no guarantees that all or any of the film will be recoverable. Some film can be recovered, at least long enough to be transferred, but once transfer is complete the film is no longer useable, either for future transfer or projection. The film will not be returned to the customer if the film is unusable for projection. This is due to the chemical processes used in the Recovery of the film. We are not allow to return or ship chemically treated film under any circumstances. Once Recovery is completed we must scan the film immediately, if we don't the film will retain it's original poor condition within hours. Recovery is a time sensitive process when chemicals are used. The film after Recovery would be of no use and has to be discarded. Unfortunately there is no acceptations unless the film is in good enough condition that it only required "Restoration" and not the extensive "Recovery" process requiring chemicals. If you wish to have any of your original material such as; film cans, empty reels, containers or boxes returned please let us know before starting the film recovery process.
FILE OUTPUT AND SCANNING SETTINGS FOR DAMAGED FILM: Our system will be color & white balanced before transfer and we will maintain average uniform exposure. There are only two options when exporting files for "FILM RECOVERY: Both file formats, (1) NIS (Numbered Image Sequence - JPEG, BMP, PNG or TIFF in SD OR HD) and (2) .MOV file in either SD or HD formats, will be RAW files and the transfers 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 "completed" and converted "file" after transfer, all footage can be scene by scene colour, exposure, grain reduction, dust removal and density corrected by our Colorist at additional cost.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT AFTER RECOVERY AND TRANSFER: All film recovers differently so it is hard to provide you with guaranteed perfect image results from your film, however if there is an image and it can be recovered and scanned (transferred) we will do our best to make the image as clear as possible. All film is inspected visually for image after recovery. It is not always possible, even with magnification, to determine if what we see on the film will have enough detail to be captured in scanning (transfer). Our policy is to scan a film if we deem the image is discernible on some part of the film. The final scanned (transferred) image quality may still be extremely poor; we err on the side of providing the customer with the best possible salvaged image. Final RAW images can show warping, shrinkage, you may see the sprocket holes, cracked emulsion, in-out of focus, missing film frames and faded, washed out images or colour shifts. If we detect any image on your film it will be scanned (transferred) regardless of quality or quantity. The old saying; "something is better than nothing" and if there is anything we can do to recover and scan your film we will do it! Sound film that is shrunk or damaged can NOT be extracted or captured either type magnetic or optical sound. If your film has a sound stripe there is no way to capture sound from extremely damaged movie film. Your sound film will be silent.
MOVIE FILM TRANSFER & LIMITED LIABILITY Completely blank, black, white frames, extremely out of focus parts will be transferred unless otherwise specified, but can be removed in post (editing) if required or specified. Extremely over or under exposed film will also be transferred, it may have that one shot of Aunt Mary or Uncle Jim that you want. Film that is damaged and that can be repaired will also be transferred. Any film that you do not hold the copyright to will not be transferred (cartoons or commercial type films we deem have a copyright). FILM SPEEDS are determined by the original setting speeds of your film camera when originally shot. We output 8mm and 16mm home movie film at 17FPS as a general rule. Many 8mm & 16mm home movie cameras were able to shoot film at many different speeds which results in several different playback or viewing speeds. SOUND FILM; specifically Super 8 sound film can have poor sound quality. 16mm film professionally shot at 24 FPS should have good quality sound. If you do not know the original film speed of your sound film, the output speed will be set at an appropriate viewable setting. No refunds will be issued for speed related issues on home movie film. Note: Hard drives are PC/MAC compatible and USB thumb drives can be pre-formatted to either NTFS or (EXFAT for Mac), but as a general rule we use NTFS.
FILE/DATA STORAGE: We have a maximum 30 day file storage and backup to all "Mastered file formats" were "files" or "data was created or mastered from the customers original material. After 30 days from the date of invoice the files will be deleted unless we are instructed by the customer to hold onto the files/data for a longer period. Data storage fees may apply depending on how long the additional storage is required.. We store "original film files" created from scanning motion picture film only for an industry standard of 90 days from the date of creation.
