Hi does anybody know if it is possible to convert cine film into a dvd via a pc?

It is most certainly possible to do but it requires expensive equipment and is not a DIY project if you expect anything like decent quality. If you look in the back of camcorder/video magazines you will find companies that will do it for you.

Thanks pops, I will have a look in the mags you reccomend.

I did it with a borrowed gadget which allowed a borrowed analogue video camera to film the integrated screen in the gadget. This was recorded on a video cassette and could then be transferred to the computer as any video can be.

-pops- is right. The original cine was home stuff and much the same quality as the video camera, and I stopped with it on a cassette.

To take it as far as DVD - there is going to be a large bit of expensive software needed and paying someone else to do it is bound to be cheaper - if you are not going to make a habit of it!

These people might be able to help?
click here for their website, although there is no advert for this service on the website just ask them and I'm sure they'll help out as they converted a video to DVD for me.
