Please could someone explain, in simple terms how to use an Arriflex Timing Shift Box and what effect if offers? I am shooting a car commercial soon and I want to get horizontal streaks on the film while keeping the car in register. I will be using an R1 rig for some of the shots. Does the altering the timing in camera result in vertical streaks only?
Thank you

Hi-

Film travels through the camera vertically, so to speak (unless you're shooting vistavision, or holding the camera sideways...) so altering the shutter timing only results in vertical streaks.
