It is interesting that the bars are stationary. Does that mean that you
arranged to lock the shutter speed to the camera video rate? Also, you
could educate me- does a 5 blade shutter relate to a double flash per film
frame or does it provide a 2.5 rate specific to 24 to 30fps conversion. I
worked with film projectors in telecine film chains in my early days in
television but the details are getting hazy.
