This super8 video is from 1969, I am showing my brother how to cross a creek.
The video on the left is a professional version done by Legacy Digital.
The video on the right is a copy using the Wolverine Film2digital MovieMaker.
The Wolverine Film2digital MovieMaker’s version was copied using the default settingfor lighting or 0 as they call it.
The contrast or sharpness as Wolverine calls it was set to low.
As you can see the Legacy Digital version has a softer contrast than the video on theright.
To make the images appear more similar I am going to change the contrast.
First I am changing the Wolverine’s version to a softer contrast to come closer to LegacyDigital’s.
I am running the video in slow motion so you can get a really good look at the two versions.
Because I prefer a film with sharper contrast I am resetting the Wolverine Film2digitalside to the original state.
Now I am going to change the Legacy Digital side to a higher contrast.
In a minute I am going to change the speed and start the video over so you can see thetwo films side by side running at normal speed.
I am changing it right about Now!Because this film does not take up the whole screen, some of Legacy’s Digital’s professionaladvantages are not easily visible.
Keep in mind, the bigger the screen you watch super8 on, the more the flaws you see.
This small screen makes the Wolverine look a little better than it really is.
On a big screen the difference between Legacy Digital’s version and the Wolverine Film2digitalMovieMaker is more apparent.
Having said that, I am still impressed with the Wolverine considering the machine onlycost about $300.
This is only part 1 of 5 side by side comparison videos I do on the Wolverine.
The 5th video is of a Reagan Rally from 1984.
First I play 30 seconds of Legacy’s Digital copy and then 30 seconds of the Wolverine’sback and forth until the end of the video.
This will fill up the screen so you get a different perspective of the two copies.
Another film is of some dark and grainy footage giving another prospective.
Now I am going to be quiet, so you can study the two films in silence.
Keep in mind Legacy Digital transfers are 1080 P while the Wolverine Film2digital MovieMakeris only 720 P despite this I will say the Wolverine does a pretty darn good job, butif you'll notice some of the Legacy Digital lighting is a little more even and their transferhas more detail especially in the dark scenes if you watch the scene where I pull on mybrothers legs, you'll see what I mean, just back it up and watch it, you’ll see exactlywhat I'm talking about.
Keep in mind the Wolverine Film2digital MovieMaker will not do sound on super eight films, itdoes copy the video portion thou A film like this, size takes roughly 30 minutes, thissize here takes roughly 2 hours, but this size which a lot of people have, this sizehere, basically it can't be done, however, there is a way to do it, if you do somethinglike this.
I have a video on how I do did this but one thing I do want to mention, I did have todestroy one of the projectors to do it the way I did, depending on what kind of projectorsyou have, is what’ll determine wether you need to do that or not.
I do have a video on how I did this thou.
Directly from the Wolverine, movies play 40% too fast in super eight, and even quickeron 8 mm.
Two videos are now playing.
Both copies are from the Wolverine Film2digital MovieMaker the one on the left is playing40% to fast.
This is what happens when played directly from the Wolverine.
The best way to solve this problem is using video editing software.
I use Video Studio Pro.
I have a tutorial showing how to slow the speed down to the correct speed whether youhave super eight or 8 mm.
If you feel the Wolverine Film2digital MovieMaker will be too time-consuming or you just wantthe best transfer possible for your family treasures.
I’ve got an extremely exciting prospect for you, I was able to convince Legacy Digitalto let me offer anyone watching this film, a limited time offer of 10% off on any transfersdone by them.
They have copied films from all around the world, and being near Los Angeles they havedone transfers for employees and executives, for CBS, ABC, Universal, Disney animationsetc.
,Despite this long list of clientele, their prices are still very competitive, it is roughly$16 for a 50 foot reel, check online yourself, that is competitive, and you'll get it for10% off of that, making it super competitive.
Keep in mind, no matter where you live, in the country, or out of the country, in state,or out-of-state, your films can be shipped to them safely.
Plenty of people have done it this way, Legacy Digital then ships your films back with anoutstanding digital copy included.
For your convenience I have included their phone number.
Just tell them you want coupon code 888 to receive the 10% discount or go to my websiteto print a coupon.
There is one more exciting thing to tell you, my films were transferred two years ago.
Legacy Digital has since updated their equipment, so your transfers should be, even better thanmine.
