Q:

You answered most of my question regarding which option to use to being able to edit the 3" reels - I have nine reels and have no idea if they are partial or full - what would the cost be if I go over the total lineage footage

marge c.  asked on  Nov 24, 2012

A:

Marge - The price for any overage is $0.28 per foot. For a 3" reel the cost of a full reel is about $13. Thanks for your interest in our offer and please let us know if you have other questions. Happy Holidays!

Q:

Just reviewing the mailing directions, which indicate the items to be transferred are mailed to the company and then they mail the items and the DVDs back. How is postage taken care of? Does the customer pay postage? Also, a second question, I have 3/4" VHS professional tapes that I would liked dubbed. Does the service also include these? Thanks!

Rebecca E.  asked on  Nov 24, 2012

A:

Rebecca - The cost of postage is the customer's responsibility, but you can apply your voucher credit towards these costs. Our site is integrated with UPS and we offer UPS ground at a flat rate of $10 each way. Unfortunately, our services focus on consumer formats so we do not process the 3/4" tapes. We can process any VHS, hi8, VHS-C or miniDV tapes for you though. Thanks for your interest in our offer and please let us know if you have other questions. Happy Holidays!

Q:

I've 20 MiniDV tapes. Does this deal cover them? How many could I transfer with $300 deal. Would I be able to get them in the AVI format for further editing? Thank you.

Tobias W.  asked on  Nov 23, 2012

A:

Tobias - The $300 voucher covers 15 tapes at the normal transfer level ($19.95 per tape). For AVI files you'd need to opt for our expert transfer ($29.95 per tape). Under the expert option, the $300 voucher would cover 10 tapes and that would include DVDs along with the digital files in AVI format. Thanks for your interest in our offer and please let us know if you have other questions. Happy Holidays!

Q:

I have 6 VHS tapes (a couple that are torn or twisted), 3" movie reels, and some slides. Would the larger package be better for me? Also the damaged VHS tapes can still be put on DVD's correct? Karen

Karen D.  asked on  Nov 23, 2012

A:

Karen - Sounds like the larger voucher would be better for you. We can try to repair the damaged VHS and then, assuming we're able to repair it, transfer it to DVD. Thanks for your interest in ScanDigital and please let us know if you have other questions!

Arnie S.  asked on  Nov 22, 2012

Q:

What if I have a lot of 3" reels but the reels aren't full reels. Can you tell me how many linear feet of super 8 film makes for a 3" reel and can we submit 6 lengths of 3" reel as long as we don't exceed that total amount of linear footage. Also, if the super 8 films are put on one CD, will I be able to edit the CD and move sections of film around if they are not in chronological order. Thanks. What software does your CD support for doing this editing -- PC and Mac?

Dan M.  asked on  Nov 22, 2012

A:

Hi Dan - We actually charge per foot, not per reel. When we transfer your film footage, we will get a count of all the film that is actually transferred, and charge you for that amount. 3 inch reels can hold 50 feet of film. Our DVDs are created to be viewed on any DVD player, but you aren't able to edit them. If you plan to edit your footage, I recommend you select the hard drive transfer option, and we will provide you with video files that you can use on your computer. Our premium film transfer creates mpeg files, and our expert film transfer created avi files. As long as your editing software supports the resulting video file format, you should be able to edit it. If you have any questions, please feel free to post on these boards or email us. Happy Thanksgiving!
