I'm wondering if I shoot super 16mm (I have a super 16mm camera) for projection on regular 16mm will any problems arise? Basically I'm thinking I'll shoot and then edit as though it were regular, syncing up sound. Even though I shot super, can I still add an optical sountrack in post to create a regular sound 16mm print?

I know that there will be no benefit to shooting super if I do this, I just have a super camera currently and I want to get started shooting.

Thanks!

You'll be shaving off one side of the image with the optical track, creating a miscentered and cropped image, that's all. Unless you get it optically printed down to a matted 1.68 : 1 image in the regular 16mm projection area.
