First Transfer Your Home Movies to DVD, then Edit them Online!
With your purchase of a 8mm Film, Super8 Film, or 16mm Film transfer to DVD, Home Movie Depot involves you in determining how your final product will look. As soon as your transferred film and screening DVD are shipped, you'll be given 30 days of free access to our online editor. Each 16mm film, super 8 film and 8mm movie film to DVD video transfer is placed into your own private online editor. Previewing your home movies online allows you to see the contents of each reel, decide on titles, choose music, customize the DVD's appearance, and determine the sequence of the reels. Even with a dial-up Internet connection you will be able to customize you home movie transfer. Once you've customized your movies, you can place an additional order for customized copies, from the same editing page!
See the Content of Each Reel: No more worrying about film splicing and movie projector bulbs, you won't need an 8mm projector! Most of our customers have labels on their reels or boxes, but often old boxes get worn, stickers peel off, or reels get mismatched with other reels. When we transfer home movies we see this all the time. We convert 8mm film to a digital format and show you stills from your 8mm movies online! We do not want you to spend the time and money preserving your 8mm movies and be unsatisfied with the final result. These 8mm movies on DVD should tell a story to future generations, and only with Home Movie Depot is this all possible.
Decide on Titles: Using your personal edit page you can add descriptive titles to each reel. Need some help from siblings or family to recall dates and faces? Not a problem. You determine who can access your page. Using our online editor will ensure that the right title and date is placed with the right home movie.
Choose Music: If you choose to add music to your movies we offer a wide variety of styles to fit any scene. Appropriate music (Christmas songs, childhood favorites, classical music and even some funky disco) makes the viewing of your memories much more enjoyable. With a few clicks you can easily select fitting music to accompany the reel of your choice. We won't limit your soundtrack! Go ahead and select a different song from our library for each and every reel. View Music Library
Determine the Sequence: If you'd like your reels to focus on a particular person or event, or if you'd like the final movie to proceed in chronological order you can easily rearrange the reels. Our online home movie editor allows you to move reels quickly and easily by clicking and dragging the reels into the order you choose.
Customize how your DVD looks DVD backgrounds can be chosen from a library of images. Our editor will generate a series of thumbnail pictures from the 16mm or 8mm movie film transfer that will allow you to select what images will identify your chapters. Many of our customers haven't seen their movies for years, or in some cases ever! The thumbnails generated by our online home movie editor make it possible to preview and title your movies without guesswork. We want to help ensure you receive your movies exactly how you'd like them. With your help we ensure that the movie you make will be the perfect gift to pass down your family history from generation to generation. View Backgrounds

Soon we will have even more features that will allow you even more flexibility in the editing process.
