please look at the footage linked above and looking for the pulsing light on the right hand side of frame. Does anyone know exactly what the issue is?
Our current theory is that the film coming off the feed side is coning ever so slightly and scratching at some point as it is fed into the gate.
Anyone know exactly what is going on here?

2 feet is roughly the circumference of a 400 ft roll of stock, so if this is happening at the start or the end of the roll, it's a light leak hitting the outside of either the feed or the takeup end of the stock, in the magazine, during camera stops.
There isn't much that is 6 feet long in the camera - it is closer to the size of a processing rack, but it would be odd to get magazine fogging AND lab fogging on the same roll.

I also like to seal my magazine with black photo tape just as a precaution.
