Huge question to you all, I've spent hours now, looking for a way to edit the actual frames of a video. I have photoshop premier and have sony vegas pro 12. Problem is that I video taped my grandmothers 8mm films by playing the projector and using a camcorder to record. Turned out very well. But there is about an hour worth where the film jumps up and down like the timing was off on the projector. The bulb burnt out while doing this and is $80 and out of stock since the thing is ancient.

So using my programs, or any programs for that matter, is there a way to actually see all the frames themselves in the video and not just make like frame blocks. So I can move the frames themselves up and down to even them out?

in Project settings there should be option to display video by timecode or frames
then you can use zoom to go by each frame

in adobe it called "Time Display Style"

thou with 30 frames per second video 1 minute would be


1800 frames


also

"Additional Factors to Take Into Consideration

The reason you need a film projector with variable speed control and multi-bladed shutter and a camcorder with variable exposure and shutter speeds is that the film rate for 8mm film is usually 18 frames per second and the frame rate of the camcorder is 30 frames per second.

What happens if you don't compensate for this is that you will see frame skips and jumps on the video after it is recorded, as well as variable flicker. With variable speed and shutter control, you can compensate for this enough to make your film to video transfer look smoother in appearance. In addition, when transferring film to video, you also need to able to adjust the aperture of the camcorder to match the more closely the original film brightness."

I'm using adobe premiere elements 12.
I've tried converting the video to several formats now, and none work better than another.
As far as the *additional factors you stated, yes you are dead on. I wasn't to familiar with the projector itself but for the most part all 2 hours of the video roughly, are very good, lighting is great for what it is, I added audio paino playing music to the movie, made a title, and scenes and such. Video turned out great, its just about 40 min or so the movie is jumpy, its like every 2 out of 4 frames are a tad higher than the other 2. Which is what im trying to fix.

I've looked for time display style and I really cant find it anywhere. All Ive got is a large block with the video in, I can move the i'frame thing and chop it up into pieces, but it never gets me to actual frame itself.

Is the program I am using just not made for editing videos? Are there ones that work way better. I know abobe cs and sony vegas but they are hundreds like $500+ and if I had the $ now I wouldn't mind purchasing as I would use the program enough, but for now I just cant come up with that much.

Also, don't think it matters, but I use my laptop for the editing not my pc. Typically I do this after 8pm and lay in bed with wife while she watches tv I play around with this. Laptop is a Samsung ativ book 8. Has quad core i7, 16gb ram, 1tb Samsung 840 evo ssd, and amd hd 8770m graphics card. It renders pretty quick for being a laptop. Especially since most programs allow for gpu rendering

don't have adobe premiere elements 12 on hand right now so not sure if it possible to enable advance edit on it,

you can try

http://www.virtualdub.org/

it's very powerful and if your video format is supported can edit it by frame
it's free as well
