Hello, Im using a Moviecam for the first time, I was going through the manual and doesn't say anything about film "loop markings" on the mags. Since it is active displacement tipe I think it should maybe, unless I have not read calmly( otherwise be like Panavision mags on Millenium model?). Would you care to give me some advice on this? I will appreciate it very much.
Thank you very much indeed.

There are no loop markings. You thread it like you would a Panavision mag, with the exception that instead of "99" it is "9P".

it doesn't have any marks, you form the loop when threading

The loop is made when the 1st AC threads the mag into the camera.

The "99" and "9P" refers to the way the film winds in and out of the mag.
It looks like this:

No, the loop size is set by the AC once the film is threaded through the movement. It's very nice and simple.
