I am thinking about the possibility of producing some film titles using desk top publishing software on my computer, then filming them from the computer screen on 16mm film. If it can be done successfully, as an alternative to using the traditional type of titlers which several camera manufactures used to make or simple "d.i.y" title boards, it seems to me that all sorts of things become possible.

Of course, it could be a silly idea!

I have checked out previous threads on the possibility of filming a computer LCD screen, but haven't found any feedback from anybody who has done this.

The advice I have picked up on seems to be that it is best to use daylight film, or tungsten film using an 85 filter, but I am wondering if any anybody can advise on whether one should over or under expose and, if so, to what extent, or, alternatively, suggest a suitable exposure setting for daylight film rated at, say, 250ASA.

Needless to say any general advice on filming LCD screens would be greatly appreciated.
