Re: Retro 8 retro scan playback isssue

I have a retro 8 pro and scanned some film. I exported to 420p. Some of the movie files will not play back, however. I get a 2048 error code from QuickTime. I uninstalled QuickTime and reinstalled it and even download a mpeg-4 codec. Even deleted the file and re exported it, Nothing will play these...

Re: Customer review: RetroSync Studio Sound Module

Another nice RetroSync user review: .......The sound quality is totally a function of your playback machine (projector's playback electronics), not a function of the RetroSync unit. It is true that the sound quality is dependent on the projector you use. However, since the function of the RetroSync...

Re: Customer review: RetroSync Studio Sound Module

Re: Customer review: Universal 2K

I would also like to see some films scanned, scanned films. I have posted many videos of my self developed movie film on my YouTube channel. Too bad the idea hasn't caught on yet. It is very easy to do. Only takes a few minuets. Doesn't cost anything. Unfortunately, clips viewed on the Internet rar...

Re: Customer review: Universal 2K

Awesome! Glad it's working well for you. You should have the spacers you need to crop as required as we included an extra 10mm tube. To fine tune the crop, just turn the focus barrel one direction or the other and then use the column knob to refocus. You will find that you can subtly "zoom in and ou...

Re: RetroSync software offline temporarily

Almost embarrassing but there's yet another new RetroSync update version 1.0.0.5 which finally addresses some pesky install issues we had in the last version(s). Crazy. Anyway, this new version works just great, very stable and we also added a sync option for users that have the old Bell and Howell ...

Re: Bauer sound projector question for the gang...

Update on this mystery. This info from Van Eck: In reverse the motor runs in the different direction, this means that the cooling from the fan is not reaching the part that burn the film. This is why in reverse the film is in more danger off burning. With kind regards, Thijs de Kort Repair departmen...

Re: RetroSync software offline temporarily

Okay, the RetroSync beta software is back on line. There was a problem with a corrupted installer. The new 1.0.0.1 version seems to be okay. Sorry for any inconvenience to any new RetroSync users.

Re: Bauer sound projector question for the gang...

Hi Roger, the Bauer projector has a three bladed shutter at all frame rates. The extra set of blades is for reverse motion. In forward motion, the two sets of blades align, so the light output is maximized. In reverse motion, the smaller set of blades shifts a bit to create a longer dark interval. ...

Re: Bauer sound projector question for the gang...

Here's what the shutter blades look like: http://www.moviestuff.tv/bauer_blades.jpg Again, I think the smaller set moves in between the regular blades when the unit is in the 18fps mode. This would reduce the visible flicker by increasing the effective flicker rate to the eye. But I could be totally...

Re: Bauer sound projector question for the gang...

I've looked at the manual and it says nothing about the shutter blades, which is odd. I can't find anything about them.

More information from Bob: A review of the new UltraLite retrofit kit for my RetroScan Universal. I received my new UltraLite kit, installed it and took it for a spin.

Customer review: Universal 2K

This is from Bob Nichols with pingpongmedia.com out of Arizona: I installed my new 2K camera with the UltraLite and the new LEDs in the perforation hole sensor block. In addition to "Grandma's" movies, I do a lot of high-end work for archives, film makers and museums. So, I'm really, REALLY picky ab...
