Curious if DS8 film would project on a Super-8 projector, for DIY telecine. Anyone tried this?

DS8 film is 16mm wide and needs to be cut in half after processing. The perfs are different from 16mm so it won't run on standard equipment.

DS-8 stands for "Double Super-8". It has Super-8 perfs, though, so after splitting it will run on a Super-8 projector.

DS8 can be run with all the 16 mm wide in 3.1 format with my Bolex camera, built by a very well know Canadian specialist
