How to transfer 35mm to mp3?

This might sound confusing because I am confused. My neighbor has something called a 35mm film. I don’t know what that is. I grew up with cassette tapes. Then when I was in high school something called a cd came out. Anyway, my neighbor wants me to transfer her 35mm film to digital. can audacity help me with this?

It’s a film for professional movie theaters. :wink:

Audacity is audio only and MP3 is audio only. (1) Does he have a way of playing it?

If he has a projector that can play it, Audacity can record the audio. If you don’t have a desktop/tower computer with a regular soundcard you’ll need a USB audio interface. (You need audio line-in, and most laptops only have mic-in and headphone-out.)

If he doesn’t have a projector or if wants the video and the audio, he’ll need to find a company that can digitize it.

(1) MP3 is also lossy audio compression. The quality can often be fine, but it might be worthwhile to make lossless archive copy first. (WAV or FLAC)

ok thank you. This is helpful. I looked around and some companies can do this but they want to charge some crazy amount.
