I don't want to get too far away from the subject, but... :)
Some new transfer methods use an electronic shutter on the video "camera".
 Since each "frame" of film is 1/24th of a second, and video is 1/30th of a
sec., you simply find the common denominator (120). The film & video will
sync at 1/120th of a second shutter speed. Run the film and video normally
with that shutter speed, boost the light from the projector, and you'll see
no flicker. (Trust me, I've done this..)

LD players are really cool! However, Kats haven't been released on LD
unfortunately. Whose arm do I have to twist?
