Transferring original sound
Sound is reasonably common on Super 8 film and 16mm film
Occasionally Standard 8 film will also have a sound stripe which will have been added post processing, sometimes by amateurs sometime professionally.
The sound formats are as follows:
Magnetic copper sound stripe on the opposite side of the film to the sprockets.
As per super 8
Optical sound track on the opposite side of the film to the sprockets, sometimes magnetic sound strip.
For 8mm films the sound is transferred on Eumig S910 and S810 projectors and then mixed and synchronised on the computer with the video that has been captured on the telecine machine.
For Super 8mm films the sound is transferred on our dedicated sound telecine machine guaranteed 100% synchronised.
For 16mm the same process is used for magnetic sound as the standard 8mm film, optical sound which is most common, is transferred in real time with the video as the telecine machine has this capability.
Once transferred the sound is enhanced and converted from single channel mono to dual channel mono, volume is adjusted if necessary.
