Are most projection venues these days set up to choose either 18fps
or 24fps or is the latter speed somehow considered more universal and
thus more readily available.? If one were setting out to make a
silent film, say a scratch type film, what would some considerations
be regarding the anticipated speed of projection? One thing that
comes to mind is that a single frame projected at 18fps lasts
slightly longer on screen than 24fps and could perhaps be a desirable
