Which Film to Use?

One of the first steps in any film production is choosing the film format to use. Cinema Tools requirements must be taken into account when making this choice.

Cinema Tools supports 4-perf 35mm, 3-perf 35mm, and 16mm-20 film formats. See Film Basics for details about these formats.

Your budget will likely determine which format you use. Although it’s generally best to use the same film format throughout your production, Cinema Tools does not require it. Each database record has its own film format setting.
