Hi there!

I am quite new to this forum, and this is my first post.
(but have already learnt alot of things reading the posts on K-3s)

Now, I am working on an animation to result in a 16mm film.

The animation which contains about 750 drawings,each shown one after the other, two frames each. Thus the animation will have an approximate duration of 1min. The end result: to show the 16mm film looped on a 16mm projector-in a gallery space.

I donĀ“t know if this is the best way to do:

I am scanning all the drawings into my computer, and then delivering all the digital stills to the lab to be transferred to 16 mm film or the cheaper way- to deliver an uncompressed video of all the digital files to be transferred to 16 mm. How much quality would I lose in choosing the cheaper method?

Second question: What resolution and format should my digital stills(being the scans of the drawings) have to obtain the best possible quality on 16 mm film? (I guess that it must be much bigger than the DV Pal res: 576x720 pixels/ 72dpi?)

I hope my questions seem clear and am
looking forward to hearing your advice !

Best regards,
