Hi Lynda! Thanks for your interest! We don't usually cut out footage if an image is able to be made out. If you have any blank portions of film, that will be cut out from your DVD. Unfortunately, we do not have the ability to process undeveloped film. With the premium transfer, we transfer reel to reel film for $.28 per foot. You will receive viewable only DVDs which you can watch on your DVD player or computer.
If you would like to edit your footage, we recommend selecting the expert transfer. With the expert transfer, we transfer reel to reel film for $.38 per foot. In addition to DVDs, an AVI file will be created and will be uploaded onto an external hard drive, which you may provide or purchase from us for $119.95. The AVI file is ready to edit and is compatible with any software and is available in 720p HD with film transfers. The DVDs will be in 480i standard resolution.
You can estimate your footage based upon the diameter of the reel:
3 inch reel = 50 feet
4 inch reel = 100 feet
5 inch reel = 200 feet
6 inch reel = 300 feet
7 inch reel = 400 feet
