Cine Film to Video Professional Suite - Version 1.9

Cine Film to Video Professional Suite is a new development based on Microsoft C# with .NET 4.0 which takes advantage from the experience gathered with CineToVid ( Java based ). The product allows to digitize 8mm, 9,5 mm (Pathé) and 16 mm cine films utilizing a good photo flatbed scanner. For 16 mm cine films it allows in addition the digitization of the optical sound track (mono or stereo) if existing with a sample rate of 48 kHz.

CineToVidPro is the base product. It's main task is the extraction (and optionally sharpening) of the frames of a scanned film strip. In addition CineToVidPro controls a number of supporting products, so that all relevant tasks of a digitization project can be controlled from a central place.
New since August 2012 is ImagePan. ImagePan provides pan shot generation form still images. These pan shots can be integrated in movies generated with CineToVidPro.

Recommended supporting products are:

  1. The ScanController, a Windows program, that controls the automatic scanning of film strips. The ScanController supports TWAIN controlled flatbed scanners. The program supports a variable strip length (depending on the width of the transparency unit (TPU) of the used flatbed photo scanner). The achievable resolution also depends on the resolution, the exploited scanner supports.
    To use the ScanController, it is required to build a suitable transportation device (there are no such devices on the market). Detailed instructions how to do that is provided in the CinToVid Wiki .
    The most recent version of the ScanController can be downloaded from here.
  2. The free PNG optimizer tool optiPNG, to store the generated movie frames as lossless compressed PNG (Portable Network Graphics) files, if PNG as image format is selected.
  3. The free command line tool FFmpeg, is a collection of Audio- and Video-Codecs to convert media-files into a different format. FFmpeg is used by CineToVidPro to generate the MPEG 2 video file from the various movie frames extracted by CineToVidPro. CineToVidPro provides the GUI (graphical user interface) and the required parameters for the program invocation.
    FFmpeg for Windows can be downloaded from ZeraNoe.com .
  4. The free and operating system independent audio editorAudacity. Audacity generates from the PCM raw data provided by CineToVidPro a sound file which conforms to the WAV specifications.
    The last stable version of Audacity (1.2.6) for Windows can be downloaded from here. Currently (August 2011) there exists a newer BetaVersion 1.3, which also can be used without problems.
  5. To play the generated videos the very versatile media player VideoLan VLC is recommended.
    The most recent version von VideoLan can be downloaded from here .
  6. To view the CineToVidPro INI file and the CineToVidPro LOG file (both files are plain text) the free text editor Notepad++ is recommended.
    Notepad++ can be downloaded from here .
  7. To view the scanned film strips and the extracted film frames the freely available image viewer IrfanView is an excellent choice.
    IrfanView can be downloaded from here .

Last changes: July 24, 2014 (CineToVidPro Version 1.9 June 2014 and ImagePan Version 2.0 August 2014)
ImagePan has been upgradet to Version 2.
The custom definition of pan shots has been significantly improved and a verification dialog for the generated pan shot has been added.
In the image cleaner dialog now 2 indicator colors are used (one for brighter pixels and one for darker pixels) to ease the distortion detection.
Now for Regular 8 films (16 2/3 or 24 fps) also the extraction of frames without fill-frames is supported. If used, the exact film speed must be adjusted during post processing e.g. with a video editor. Caution: Due to the introduction of a new filmtype, the film type of already existing projects has to be verified and probably adjusted.
For mice which do not support the middle button, now in the image cleaner dialog a double click on the left mouse button will switch to the next frame.
It is now also possible to set the start frame of a strip to 1 (usefull, if only short strips can be scanned with the available flatbed-scanner). But in this case, the strip adjustment must be performed with not 100% identical frames, which means, some areas probably cannot be matched perfectly.

Cine Film to Video Suite Version 5


   Cine Film Frame Extractor (CineToVid),
   Cine Film Image Cleaner (ImageCleaner),
   Cine Film Image Stabilizer (ImgStb), and
   Cine Film Image Sharpener (CineSharp)

Annotation: The Java based Cine Film to Video Suite will not be enhanced anymore starting August 2011. The product is replaced by the new Cine Film to Video Professional Suite - see above.

The Cine Film Frame Extractor allows to extract the frames of a cine film in order to generate a video file, that can be shown on a Personal Computer with a MultiMedia Player. CineToVid has since version 2 a native movie generator , but additional programs can be used to generate the movie file. To show the movie a MultiMedia Player is needed.
CineToVid functions as a control center to coordinate the exploitation of these additionally supported external programs.

The Cine Film Image Cleaner (ImageCleaner) is a tool that supports and eases the cleaning of scanned cine film strips from dust and dirt spots, the Cine Film Image Stabilizer (ImgStb) is a tool, that supports the stabilization of blured scenes in a Super 8 cine film, and the Cine Film Image Sharpener (CineSharp) is a tool, that allows to sharpen a series of JPG images according to custom defined sharpening criterias. This may be desireable if the sharpening of the frames was not good enough during scanning of the strips.

Prerequisites

CineToVid, ImageCleaner, and ImgStb are Java applications, you therefore need a SUN Java Runtime Environment JRE 1.6.0 or better. In addition you need the SUN Java Media Framework JMF 2.1.1e or better.
CineSharp is a C# ( C sharp) tool and needs the Microsoft .NET V3.5 SP1 execution environment.

To generate the AVI file and to watch the generated movies you can exploit external programs. To generate the AVI file "SSMM" Version 3.7 or better from Joern Thiemann, VirtualDub, or AviDemux can be used. All programs are currently (02/2006) freeware. To encode/decode the AVI file with external movie generators I recommend DivX. As a multimedia player the "Windows MediaPlayer" is a good choice.

Remark

KCsoftware KC Softwares has released in September 2005 version 2 of PhotoToFilm.

PhotoToFilm is a program, that already can be used together with CineToVid. But version 2 at the moment is lacking some functions to make the usage really integrated. These functions are planned for future versions.
Until these functions are implemented, you can use PhotoToFilm V2 as an easy to use program to generate Photo shows with integrated sound.

And here an important hint:

If you cannot afford the amount of time needed to transfer your cine films with the scanner method, I recommend the only method for amateurs, that yields very good results. For details see the page of Mr Fälker (unfortunately German only) and the page listing the required TeleCine Components.

Some hints in case you consider to digitize your Super 8 movies:

  1. Please remember: very likely CD's and DVD's are not the ideal material to archive your valuable family memories.


    How long CD's and DVD's you have "burned" on your own really last is not yet proven. It is asumed, that you can replay these media error-free for about 5 years. Some CD's or DVD's may be defect even earlier. See example.

    Film material (especially Kodak K40) definitely lasts much longer than 50 years without any loss of quality.
    Therefore: never discard your originals. Store them in tin-boxes sealed with a plastic tape and store them cool ( 40 to 50 °F or 10 to 15 °Centigrade).
    The CD/DVD is just the media to replay the movies conveniently.



  2. If you have your movies digitized commercially by a "transfer mill", please insist on the delivery of a "transfer master" (preferably on magnetic storage media - tapes normally last more than 15 years). This gives you the possibility to redo your DVD in case it is not readable anymore. A DVD should never be the only deliverable returned to you.


  3. For the creation of (MPEG-2) DVD's preferably use "progressive" sources (full images).
    The "interlaced" technique (2 half frames - captured with a time gap of 1/50 second) is outdated and no longer "state of the art". It was developed around 1930 - a time in which "electronics" still used to be "slow". It is difficult to reconstruct full frames from a "interlaced" source, because the 2 half frames have been taken at different times, that is, there has been a movement between the capturing of the half-frames.


JADE Integrated Development Environment

The JADE Integrated Development Environment is a lightweight development environment that supports the coding and testing of Java programs. JadeIDE itself is written in Java to be platform independent.

The tool allows the definition and storage of parameters which support the invocation of a code editor, a HTML editor, a XML Editor, a Java compiler, Java applications, and Java applets. In addition the tool supports the invocation of JiveLint (a static Code Checker from Sureshot), the UML Editor UMLet from the Vienna University of Technology, and the display of Java API and Java Doc files with the browser of your choice. Code templates for new classes (including individually customized templates for windows with menu bars and dialog frames) as well as HTML files for applet invocation can be generated.

Before using the product please accept the license agreement you will find in the file downloaded or which you can read here.

The code has been used and tested under Windows98, Win2000 and SUSE Linux 8.2 with KDE3 but should be also useable on other platforms providing a standard Java Virtual Machine (e.g. provided by a JRE or JDK). There might be problems with the GUI on platforms not tested. Therefore any comments about problems and recommended improvements are welcome.

JadeMOD - Java Application Modeller

The JADE Application Modeller is a tool that allows comprehensive and consistent specification of a business domain in an object oriented manner.
The tool allows to document a) the organization hierarchy of an enterprise, b) the existing business objects (documents, products, parties,...) in a structured and redundancy free form, and c) the existing business procedures and their relationships to the defined business objects.
As far as possible the model diagrams are generated and arranged automatically in order to avoid lengthy arrangement activities.
For the modelled business objects the tool allows to generate Java code templates.
The JADE Application Modeller may be enhanced by new functions in the future if there are features fitting into the concept of JadeMOD requested by JadeMOD users.

Before using the code please accept the license agreement you will find in the file downloaded or which you can read here.

The code has been used and tested under Win32 and Suse Linux 8.2 but should be also useable on other platforms providing a standard java virtual machine (JRE or JDK).

ApplyExif - a tool to apply camera specific EXIF information to scanned images.

The ApplyExif tool allows to take a sample image of a digital still camera as a template and to apply the manufacturer specific EXIF information to JFIF type JPEG images (e.g. images scanned with a flatbed scanner). You can transfer the converted image to the storage chip of your digital still camera in order to use this camera as a mini-photoalbum or you can use it as device to show the images on a TV set that provides this function.
This may work with all types of digital still cameras but tested have been so far only some Canon cameras. If you have been successfull with other types of cameras, please tell it to me in a short message via the support E-Mail address.

The tool is written in Java, you therefore need the SUN JAVA Runtime Environment Version 1.6 (or better), that can be downloaded form the Sun Java site.

Details about the manufacturer specific EXIF information entries can be found via the the homepage of Ger Vermeulen.

The code has been developed and tested under Windows XP but should also work under Windows Vista and Linux.

Latest update: April 8, 2008 (Version 1.05 - April 2008) The integration with GExifView from Ger Vermeulen has been improved. The time stamp now can be set individual. The EXIF fields DateTime Original and DateTime Digitized now also are set to the selected image time stamp. The Copyright notice can be set (if the camera manufacturer has the field provided) and a user comment can be set in the appropriate EXIF field.

DustRemover - a tool to remove dust an fluff from scanned images of transparencies.

The DustRemover is a program that is specialized to remove such dust and fluff that has been scanned together with the image itself when digitizing an analogue image using a flatbed scanner.
It is almost impossible to keep a flatbed scanner absolutely clean, and therefore there are always tiny little dark lines and spots (normally only a view pixel wide) which can be very disturbing if you view the image in full resolution. The higher the resolution of a scanned image is, the more disturbing are these little artefacts.

The DustRemover is designed to remove such small artefacts. The colour of the pixels of the dirt spots is changed to the average colour of the surrounding pixels. To do this, the tool provides two types of brushes, a drag brush and a copy paste brush. The brushes can have a width between 1 and 19 pixels.

The tool is written in C# exploiting the .NET 4.0 Library. It therefore only can be used under Windows( XP, Vista, 7) 32 Bit or 64 Bit.

The code has been developed and tested under Windows 7 64 Bit but should also work under Windows Vista and Windows XP.

RenumFiles - renumber/rename a series of files with identical file type

With the RenumFiles tool you can resort, renumber and/or rename a series of files with identical file type. Individual name modifications are also supported. Image files are presented as thumbnails to ease name finding.
The filename can be built from 3 optional components. the old file name, a literal as prefix or suffix, and a sequence number with s selectable step width. If the old filename contains numbers, these numbers can be eliminated. The position of the name components (left, center, right) can be freely choosen.
The tool is written in C# and .NET . It therefore only can be exploited under Windows( XP, Vista, 7 ).
