Question by whirlpool23: Do I have to process super8 film before transferring it?
I’m new to super8 filmmaking and I’m trying to figure out the procedure for going from shooting to editing. If I have a telecine machine on hand, do I have to send my super8 cartridges away to a processing house? Or can I just transfer the footage directly through the telecine unit to my digital editing deck?
Answer by Brent Y
The film must be developed, just like any other film, before it can be scanned.
