The other reels are much the same, there is a green emulsion line through about 1/3rd of one of the reels, but that can be repaired without too much effort.
Scanning it is a bloody big task though, I needed to purchase an extra SSD to keep up with the scanner, it was dropping the occasional frame, which on film is a nightmare as if you miss the frame you have to get the film back into position, capture that frame, align and insert it etc.
The capture is about 18GB per minute in its raw form, so it is quite unwieldy.
Just transferring the files off the SSD to the HDDs each time the SSD fills up can take hours. I've ordered another couple of HDDs to stripe them. A RAID0 setup should stop me having to wait so long between each scanning session for the SSD to be cleared.
That footage is straight out of the scanner, no colour correction or anything yet. I'd love it if someone had a go at correcting it.
