Hi:

 

I am new to filmmaking. I was reading an interview by Rodrigo Prieto (DP). He said "The S4s felt a tiny bit less harsh and a touch warmer than the ultra primes. It was hard to see initially; we have to A-B project them over and over".

 

What is A-B project?

 

Thanks

It’s when you take something (in this case a lens) A and something B and compare it side to side.

Many lab theaters have or had two 35mm projectors to show reels with changeovers so you could put a print of a test in each projector and switch back & forth between them to compare something. Of course today you could load two clips and switch between them in a digital suite.
