Hey everyone,

I'm shooting super 16mm on the aaton xtr and wanted to get some feedback on ways of pursuing 2.35 aspect ratio. I know it may be impossible to get ground glass, but is it pretty easy to crop just with tape?

I didn't understand the scotch tape method very clearly, sorry.

Anyway, I also wanted to know if there is an easier way / more accurate . . .

This is my first time doing 2.35 so any advice would help -

thanks =)

Scotch tape method doesn't really work that well with the Aaton cameras as the ground glass/fiber optics screens aren't easily accessible like they are in the Arri 16S, 16BL, 16SR and 16SRII.

Best,

not sure if you've shot already but I have gone to Abel Cine in LA & NY and they have fed-exed me the 2.35 ground glass for the xtr. It's pretty easy to swap out if it's available, but they are elusive, I think they only have one or two of them...
