I've adapting some Nikkor lenses to work for video/cinema. Is there a place where I can get them measured in T-stops so I can maintain consistant lighting easier?

The difference between T stops and F stops is pretty small. it's probably easier just to compensate by opening up a little, say a 1/4 stop. Modern digital cameras have enough latitude to allow for any minor discrepancies in your exposure.
