There used to be lots of ways to convert 8mm movie film to VHS video tape, and there are lots of ways to convert VHS video tape to DVDs, but there aren't a lot of ways to convert 8mm movie film to DVDs. You will probably have to use a service.

Isuggest that you convert the 8mm movie film to VHS video tape first. Going from 8mm film directly to DVD uses compression that reduces the quality of the image, while the conversion from 8mm film to VHS tape doesn't involve compression, so it will give you the best quality image.

See Telecine.

Good luck
