Don't start with your one-of-kind-footage that you want to project, start the experiments with some slug that you can afford to lose,
because this is a scenario where lots of film might get chewed up before you perfect it.

jk. sorry for being so cheeky ;)
you should just try it out! and you will soon see what the issues are and adjust accordingly. I have found its a matter of distance between and slack and as Deco says depends on the machines. The fun part is actaully working the machines and attempting to see what works best. have fun!

love, J

Depending on which projectors you are using, there may be a rheostat in one that will let you slightly adjust the FPS up or down... You can adjust and set this while they are running and it would help you tweak the slack if they were running slightly differently from one another.

I am trying to rig up an installation involving one 16mm film loop that runs through two projectors simultaneously. Does anyone have any advice on how to synch the 2 projectors so that the slack remains constant on both sides? I think I either need to rig up a slave motor or slave one projector to the other.

Any advice?
