I am interested in building a subpatch which I can use to synchronize my audio with a 16mm projector. My plan is to use Academy leader which contains the short audio beep at the number 2 during the countdown sequence. I will run the audio out from the projector into my Powerbook G4 with the max patch. Right now I’m just thinking of using this as a way to consistently output a bang that will be close to synch with my film.
Has anyone tried anything similar? or have suggestions for ways to approach this?
Problem with 16mm projectors is that they are not exactly frame accurate for timing. You could use an interlocked projector, but not easy to find.
In cinemas I think they used to trigger the curtains opening by putting small a metal slug on the film, that would hit a contact connected to a relay.
But I could be wrong….
