You could always shoot it off the wall onto 16mm color neg, process normally
and then you will have a work print to make a loop from and a negative to
make more, no optical printer necessary. Depending on yr subject matter ?
should be fine. Nothing is wrong with super 8 as a loop per se, what do you
mean by "worth it"? You might want to think about the length-- are you
building a looper or will you just run it through the projector taped end to
end? There is always wear and tear on film loops,I dont think it's less for
Super8 than 16mm.
