Super-8 to DVD Tags: DVD Players DVD Movies Macintosh Home Theatre Last response: July 12, 2011 1:34 AM in Home Theatre Share johnjlanders April 12, 2010 1:00:54 AM I have several 400 ft reels of Super-8 movies. I can pay a commercial service to convert them to DVD. However, I have a new Mac and have learned how to use iMovies. So can I get my movies converted to something (.mov or .m4v) my Mac can read? Then I could do the editing and make a new DVD for our kids to have. Thanks. More about : super dvd snowgoer1998 May 12, 2010 5:40:27 PM somewhat of an old thread but maybe I can be of assistance... I am finishing a project along the same lines. My family had old Super-8 reels which I converted. Here are your options: #1. Pay to have a commercial service transfer your 8's to UNcompressed AVI - you should be able to edit from this format #2. Set up a screen and video camera and project the image onto the screen while recording with your video camera #3. Build your own transfer equipment I went route #2...I have a high def camcorder and was able to set up my equipment so the end result doesn't look that bad. It's not professional quality...but it was a hell of a lot cheaper.. Monet July 12, 2011 1:34:44 AM A better option these days is to send it to a professional transfer organisation such as Pro8mm or DVD Infinity to transfer to high definition files and then editing those.
