Re: Kodak stops production of Ektachrome 100D

Hey grainy, you've obviously never seen a quality 8mm to 16mm if you believe the digital version looks better. I normally would ignore such a statement, but trying to kill time during an upload.

Re: Paclab for 100D ektachrome.. Results

This was fresh from John schwind. Good stock. I've been shooting film for over ten years and always take care of the emulsion's environment. I do understand your thought, Because I've only seen this reddish hue in the black/shadows is with outdated ektachrome 160. But this was fresh.

The shadow / areas where bl...

Re: What's the best thing if I want sound on super 8 and 16m

if youre not doing sync-sound as in lip-sync, you may want to consider double system sound projection, the least expensive form. youll have the audio qued at specific point on the film leader. here you can choose whatever audio system/format you want. but if you want to marry the sound with picture ...

Re: Scratch animation

been doing this form animation for years and i use illustrator and photoshop.
mostly photoshop where i pre-design a graph to arrange each 16mm size frame in succession. easy, but tedious and time consuming.
