Bronze, Silver, Gold and Bespoke Video Editing

Vhs video to dvd transfer bronze package

Bronze Video Transfer Package

The tapes are “topped and tailed” so you only get what is between the first and last viewable frame, everything else is trimmed off.

For Bronze Computer File service – Each tape will be a separately named and numbered computer file so you will know which physical tape created which digital file.

For Bronze DVD service - A feature film is created from your archive and recorded onto best quality Verbatim “Datalife” thermal dual layer DVDs. This is the most cost effective way of getting your memories off tape and onto DVD.

Overview of Bronze DVD Service

  • All film recorded into PC in chronological order where possible
  • PC disc creation with main Menu and Authoring

The key element of the Silver Service is that I go through all of your recordings and edit out all the gaps which might show as “fuzzy”, “black” or “blue” screens.

video tape to blu-ray transfer gold package

Gold Video Transfer Package The key element of the Gold Service is that I go through all of your recordings not only cutting out the gaps but also editing out all the rubbish footage. This might include lens caps, the bit where you filmed your feet for 30 seconds on the beach, the camera waving at nothing, the bit where the camera was put in the bag but left on. It is generally tidied up to make it much more enjoyable. Many people don’t turn a camera off until it is pointing at the floor, so I will cut at the point the camera starts to go down…..Then your film has chapters added at main scene changes.

For Gold Computer File service – Each tape will be a separately named and numbered computer file so you will know which physical tape created which digital file

For Gold DVD service - I then create a feature film of up to three hours and recorded onto best quality Verbatim “Datalife” thermal dual layer DVDs. Each thermal printed DVD will include family name, tape number / date of film etc. Along with three carefully chosen still frames from the footage on that disc.

Overview of Gold DVD Service

  • All film put in chronological order if possible
  • More complex editing is included to cut out not only all the gaps but all of the feet / floor / lens cap errors / sky, the worst of the footage.
  • Chapters added at main scene changes.
  • Full on disc labelling with titles and screenshots printed on to Thermal DVD
  • Country flags / event / location logos printed if possible. So if a disc includes a trip to Greece and Disneyland Florida I will print those flags on the disc so you can quickly see major events / holidays
  • DVD Label will be photo perfect thermal printing to make it water, scratch and fade-proof
  • Stills are cropped / photo-shopped to look their very best
Video edit

I have been asked many times over the years to create a DVD or film for a special occasion. These have been big number birthdays (18, 21, 30, 40 and so on), wedding anniversaries or weddings themselves.

Typically this might involve using multiple clips from multiple sources, titles and backing music.

To get those multiple clips you might already have them as computer files or they might be on various tapes, sd cards, DVDs, cassettes, cine film or photographs which I would need to digitize.

You can then go through those files or DVDs choosing which bits you want on the final DVD or video. If you provide me with in-and-out points where you want your clips to start and stop I can create your masterpiece.

If it is the kind of special present you are thinking of, get in touch and we can talk it through.I have just finished the 4th and final “30th birthday” present for one family which I have been creating periodically over the last 7 years and it made me realise I ought to set up this page for others who might be after the same kind of thing.

Each of these “specials” will be tailored exactly to your needs and will be priced accordingly, once I have the details of what you are after I can provide a quote for the necessary work involved.
