Steven's answer reminds me that the original question didn't specify
that the discussion was limited to 35mm.  However, I've worked on very
little 16mm shot for compositing work.

Is the Oxberry used for motion control stage situations, as well as
animation stand (flat art) setups?

the fairly common Steadifilm products I'd mentioned in the previous
have two pins, one fully fitting and the other a guide pin.  That
fully fitting pin is at the northwest corner of a typical 35mm frame,
and in telecine steady tests, we usually look at the southeast corner
as exhibiting the most variation, due to the distance from the pin.
