Hi everyone,

I'm aware that this is a very common topic but I can't seem to find my answer anywhere...everything is with regards to the NTSC format. I'm shooting my first short film on Super 16 next week on the Aaton XTR Prod. Can someone please advise about the things I should be aware of while shooting a PAL TV screen(if any) and how to overcome flicker problems. (We are shooting on 25fps)

Thanks!
Mei

As you´re shooting at 25fps the only thing you have to do is to phase the scanline from the screen, that is if you´re shooting a crt television. If you set the mirror to 180 the scanline should be at the same position as you see in the vf. If you´re shooting a lcd or plasma it´s even easier.
