Our Cine Film Transfer Process

Unicorn Films Cine transfer Technology, was custom designed and built by Moviestuff Texas USA to create super 8, Single 8 and Standard 8mm transfers which offer the outstanding clarity that can only come from full frame scanning film transfers.

When cine film is projected on a conventional projector up to 25% of the image is cropped .This is because of the design of the projector film gate which was supposed to prevent the original 100watt /150watt projector bulb from melting the film.

Our equipment captures the full frame and is gate less no hot bulbs. In fact our bulb is only 5 watts and the image is captured using special software and hardware. Our equipment also captures the extra 25% of the film frame right out to the film perforations.

We also edit out white leader and black material from your final film. and no chance of burning your film.The sprocket less drive system ensures no film damage to your precious home movie films.
