pulling the 400 or 600 ft roll, will stress claw mechanism and perforation more. Hi, Pedro! No offense, but this is something that is simply wrong and it is something that you have repeated several times in different forums. It's a simple matter of mechanics: The LARGER a reel of film is, the EASIE...

Re: Single or dual purpose projector, which is more gentle?

I need to buy a projector. All the film I have and all the film I'm shooting is regular 8. I'm trying to decide whether I should buy a newer "dual" projector or an older single purpose "regular 8" projector. Hi, Marc! What speed are you shoot at? 16fps? 18fps? 24? That can also make a difference on...

And finally, the "flicker removal" will only work on something that has already been rendered. So, do all the things I just described and render out the end titles. If they still chatter slightly save that render as a separate video clip and apply the "flicker removal" to the new clip. That will re...

The ghetto way to get the refernce sync is to simply record the spikes that happen off of the flash socket. This has its own set of issues, most notably the bleed onto the REAL audio track if you are using a common ground for both signals (as is typical with minidisc recorders.) But that's only tru...

Hi, Andreas! There are several things that will make type flicker on video. If you use a sarif type face, the sarifs are often thinner than the horizontal raster lines of the screen, therefore they "blink" on and off as they travel up or down. Try using a sans-serif type face. Also, use a bold type ...

If you shoot K40 correctly and transfer to video correctly, no one will be able to tell if it is Super 8 reversal or a 16mm print that was transferred. If you're using K40 for eventual telecine it is important to keep your lighting ratio fairly flat (unless, of course, you're striving for a special...

Totally wrong. At the same ASA, reversal film will always have finer grain than negative. to quote the filmmakers handbook, "Color negative films are significantly less grainy than comparable-speed color reversal films."(123) this statement is what I based mine on. doesnt mean you are wrong I just ...

From what I've heard, colour negative filmstock has better grain then colour reversal. Is this wrong? Totally wrong. At the same ASA, reversal film will always have finer grain than negative. However, reversal film will always be more contrasty than negative. More to the point, there is zero compar...

Re: STILL looking for someone to test sound sync software

Anybody who's got some super8 footage that was shot while recording either flash socket closures or digital pulses along with their audio, and wants to resolve the audio, I'm looking for a tester or two. Let me know... Hi, Mikkel! After talking to you on the phone, I really started getting excited ...

Hi, Andreas! As you know, we transfer quite a lot of super 8 and regular 8mm film to video for independent producers. http://www.moviestuff.tv As such, we get to see quite a sampling of footage from across the U.S. So far, we have seen jitter in well over 100 carts, ranging from K40 to Plus-X to Tri...

Re: Workprinter

Will you still be offering the universal condenser lens? I already have a projector that runs 18 and 24, but I would like something better than an Ambico to run the image through. ~5B Hi, Stewart! Yes I will still offer the condenser lens. However, you really can't use it with just any projector. T...

CineMate Dual 8mm telecine machines

Previously on the old board, I made an annoucement about the introduction of the CineMate series, which has three different shutter blade configurations for 15fps, 20fps and 24fps. Marc posted the following information about which transfer rate might be the most economical if only one speed had to b...

Dude! This is terrific! I love the fact that we can post photos (finally!). Now everyone can see what a homely S.O.B I am. Well done, Andreas. Three cheers from the peanut gallery.

Pip-pip.
