Renting the the Reflecta Super 8 scanner from Scanexperte you have to consider that this scanner initially creates JPG frames, which must then be combined into one AVI video file. To do so, all you have to do is click "Next" and then click "Combine" after the scanning process is completed. The software takes some time to combine the frames into a video file. You will also be asked if you want to keep the frames in addition to the video file. You should definitely click on "Yes, keep individual frames" to make sure that no data gets lost during assembly. While combining the frames into a movie it is not possible to digitize another movie. The scanner must always be connected to the computer if you want to start the software and combine frames. If you want to put together the movies after you've sent the device back or while you're digitizing the next movie, you'll need another method. Below we've listed some options for combining you movies. Please note that those are external software suppliers for which we can't provide technical support.
Combining with VirtualDub
Many customers use the program VirtualDub, which can be downloaded from the following website: virtualdub.org.
With this program, the individual images can be combined to form a .AVI file.
Combining with Windows Movie Maker
The program Windows Movie Maker is already installed on most Windows devices, but can be downloaded later:
1. Open the Windows Movie Maker program.
2. Click on "File" and then on "New project".
3. Then click on the icon below "Add videos and photos".
4. The file manager will open, you can select the images you want to put together. Select all here and click "Open". This step may take some time, depending on the computer's performance.
5. Then go to the "Video Tools"> "Edit" tab and enter "0.05" in "Duration" to set 18 frames per second (Super 8 speed).
6 Click File> Save Movie> Recommended Settings> Recommended For This Project. Please be patient as this step also takes some time.
Important: We would like to point out again that we can not provide support for external software and that these two solutions are only intended as alternatives. We would always recommend to use the scanner's own Cyberview S8 software as the assembly is very easy.
