Editable .MOV Digital Files

Instead of an encoded DVD, you may wish to order an an editable computer file for home editing. We can supply you with an editable .MOV file for editing on PCs and MACs. An MOV file is approximately 1gb per minute. So if the running time of your cine film is 30 minutes we will need to put it on a 32gb USB stick. Customers can provide their own external hard drive or large capacity USB stick for this purpose or we can supply them in store at cost.

Image sequence files are also available for advanced users at 50% extra

Extra DVDs - £6

Although DVDs last a lifetime without deterioration in quality one scratch or scuff mark will render it unplayable. For this reason we strongly advise you to order an extra DVD back up copy of your cine transfer work - the cost is only £6 per 2 hour DVD.

Time and Length

The easiest way to find out both the running time and the film footage of 16mm film is to measure the diameter of the reel

  • 3" diameter - 50ft, 2 minutes
  • 5" diameter - 200ft, 8 minutes
  • 7" diameter - 400ft, 15 minutes
  • 9" diameter - 800ft, 30 minutes
  • 12" diameter - 1200ft, 45 minutes

Please note that running times are approximate as they depend on the frame rate
