This short video gives you a quick look at the most common cine film formats, including standard 8mm, super 8mm, 9.5mm cine film and 16mm cine film.

Alive Studios can transfer your cine film sound for you, but some customers prefer to capture the sound themselves - either because they enjoy the process, or to keep the budget down. If you transfer the sound yourself, you will no doubt experience some humming and hissing, and perhaps electronic interference. We have made this handy video to show you some simple techniques to eliminate these distracting sounds, using Audition from Adobe.
