Just got a great old Bolex 16mm camera. H16 1953 with 3 prime lens. I want to animate a UFO model. Shooting model on a green screen to cut with video twilight shot of beach. My question is frames per model movement? Would sd video cut well with 16mm film footage?
are you actually animating the ufo (e.g. taking a frame, moving the model, taking another frame...)? most model work like UFO fly-bys is done by rigging some thin wire to the model then actually flying it past the camera like a puppet. this is shot in slow motion (45 - 60 fps) to smooth out the motion and make it appear more "weightless". if you are going frame by frame, i would suggest testing the motion with a digital camera or something before shooting a roll of film only to get it back from the lab and have to re-shoot
