    Wolverine Data MovieMaker Pro reviews

    Film2Digital MovieMaker-PRO 8mm and Super 8 Converter is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 70.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from generates highly compressed MP4s The results are not as good as I was expecting.� The output is a terribly compressed H.264.� Clearly the unit is taking individual stills of each frame, why not leave those stills as a lossless image sequence instead of crunching it down (twice I suspect from the compression on the stills) and leaving the user with a heavily compressed MP4 video? I'm a bit disappointed. I'll be contacting the manufacturer, possibly a software update can improve the resulting image quality after the mp4 file is encoded???

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does a decent job I don't think there is anything else on the market at this price that will do what this is capable of. Just note that it is not fast and will take upward of 2 hours to do a full 9" 8mm reel. That being said, the end result is very good. After using it to do 3 9" 8mm reels I can give some advice to the newbie. 1. Clean the film, 2. Make sure all of your splices are in good shape, 3. Add some packaging tape to the surface of the Wolverine where the take-up reel meets any flat surface, this will prevent any scratching. 4. Keep the scanning area free of any dust particles, canned air works fine. The instructions are sparse and does not cover a lot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old Movie film to Mp4 It does all that it is supposed to do.� I have re-scanned 7 of my 8mm family movies from 1960 to 65 and so far it is working fine.� I am surprised at how well the color has survived and the film is not brittle and as yet has not broken.� The quality of the images on our 58" TV is comparable to our old movie projector and screen.� It does take a few hours to scan a 30 minute film but it can pretty much be left to do it's work while I do something else.� I has hung up a couple times and needs to be stopped and restarted after re positioning film in the scanning mechanism.� Over all I am happy with it and the price I paid.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked OK, then stopped I purchased the Pro model on Nov 22. I began converting our family 8 mm films in my spare time and was happy to see these films again. (I loaded them into my Mac and started converting them into fun videos using iMovie.) As with any new technology, it took some trial and error to figure out the mechanics of loading the films, etc.., �ut the device is generally user friendly for a patient person. However, a few days ago the sprocket that moves the film theu the device began to no longer "catch" the film, so it essentially no longer works. Inhave sent emails to the seller (B&H) and manufacturer (Wolverine) to ask for help. (i purchased a 3-year warranty with this item, too.) I will send an update about how this issue gets handled.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the best quality I bought this to transfer some old footage that I hadn't had previously transfered by a lab. The quality of the image saved leaves a lot to be desired. Very noisy viewed at actual size and worse if blown up. Considering that it records 1 frame at a time I would expect better, even if it means taking longer to record a reel of film. Also the frame adjustment drifts all over the place. It needs a lot of watching while doing a transfer, even of small reels as it has a tendency to eat any splices. I'm glad I still have an 8mm splicing block. Now to find a place to order some splicing tape. I've been making do with cellophane tape in the interim. Also be aware that it cannot use a memory card larger than 32 mb.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great, not thrilled about the resolution When I project the actual film to a screen it is a bit clearer that the mp4 on my PC; possibly due to compression.� Overall I am happy with the function and my 15 year son has helped me setup and start many of the 10 conversions I have done so far.� I would definitely recommend this product.� I have about 30 or so more films to convert.� Small detail, the destination real included is about 5 inches in diameter (as shown) .� �If the product will work with reals up to 9 inches, it would have been nice to include a real that will handle those; I'll need to buy one of those.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Marginal Quality It's a great idea but the quality of the build is something to be desired.� It does work after working out the bugs.� Make sure the splices on any spliced film are secure and properly done. Small screen is not an asset.� Reel motor is not adequate for larger reels of film.� 8mm to super 8mm adapters are really junky.� Be ready for post production work after the initial capture.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! I purchased this machine about 3 weeks ago and have used it for three 9 inch reels along with multiple smaller reels. I run a video production company and we provide video transfers as one of our services, and so far this has been a good addition to our equipment! I do wish it ran through the reels faster than it does, but for post production there is not much work that needs done...which is nice! It does require some monitoring, just to make sure the reel (if sprocket holes are damaged) doesn’t get stuck. Overall It does a great job capturing each picture and provides a nice video ready to be put into your video editing software.
