    The link here is an example of the 8 mm reel film that I had converted to digital. Each reel is 3 minutes 30 seconds. I don’t know the term to use so I will say that the film plays with continuous flickering. I do not know the technical term so I use ‘flickering’ . Possibly spluttering, banding….

    If I know the exact term of this annoyance I would renew the google search to seek a solution.

    Is there a plug-in that can fix this? Or a special application that can possibly remedy the flicker?

    Let me know how to repair, to fix, the ‘flicker” annoyance.

    PS. I work mostly with Premiere Pro. After Effects would be a new experience with a learning curve in order to work on these films with flicker.


    This non-profit organization had over one hundred super 8 color films that we took to a transfer house. The films were all converted to MOV format. Half of the films were without ‘flicker flashes’ and the other half were as presented in this thread. This comment of the transfer from Legacy Digital:

    “8mm film with sound stripe attached- Includes synchronizing audio to video delivered in one file-2K Pro Res”

    Thanks for any advice !!

    Here is a reel that demonstates Flicker:
