As a beginner, you have two methods to transfer old films to DVD:
#1: Projecting onto a wall, and record it with a simple camera:
Advantages: You need a projector, a camera, and a computer.
Disadvantages: The picture will be distorted because it is impossible to record from the center of the picture. Image must be cropped after recording. Sides of the video will be darker, and the middle is going to be brighter. Camera electronics compensates over the image, it can not accomodate as fast as the image brightness is changing.
#2: Projected on varnished glass, through prism, recorded with camera:
Advantages: You need a projector, a projecting prism, a camera, and a computer.
Disadvantages: This system gets dirty easily, if a lint sticks on the glass or the prism, this will visible in every recording. The second problem is the same as with the first method: The sides of the video will be darker, and the middle is going to be brighter. The camera electronics compensates over the image, it can not accomodate as fast as the images brightness is changing.
