okay... that's making sense slowly to me... just
trying to grasp it...
if the perfs are the same size... and you can run
unsplit 8 through a 16 projector... then how can the
distance be different? wouldn't it create a huge
difference over the length of hundreds of feet of
film? not sure if i'm wording my question right....

i would show it as 16mm... or actually, i'm not
looking to show the print... you see, i want to work
with these images thrugh various optical printing
techniques to create new images... but i don't want to
damage the original kodachrome... that's why i want a
dupe 16mm neg... so that i can make 16mm prints that i
can work with (using both an oxberry optical printer,
and my analysis projector for rear projection since it
shows the whole film width edgecode and all) without
risk to damaging the original.

these films were never meant to be shown as 8mm
format... that's why i didn't have them split.

16mm to 16mm....
my options are contact print, or optically print.
i would assume that optical printing would have more
loss of quality due to the intermediary lens....
correct me if i'm wrong though.

thanks again for the info.
