I found a link that seems authoritative at http://www.film-center.com/formats.html
Its values are in inches while FrameForges are in mm so you'll need to multiply by 25.4. There seems to be some difference of opinon as to what the Super 8 aspect ratio is so you'll have to find out whether it is really 1.36 (as the above site claims) or 1.33 as other sites claim. Note that the recordable widths are different for different aspect ratios so you may need to get some verification on those numbers too.
In any case, once you've collected and verified the physical width of the recordable frame (and I supposed you could actually measure a piece of film) all you need to do is go to the FILE menu in FF3D, choose Set Film/Frame Size
, then click Create New Frame Size
Enter the name Super 8
, and the correct aspect ratio.
For Film (or Equiv.) Size
. This is only use to group the film/frame size if
you actually enter the physical width of film or CCD Aperture, which you'll need to do.
Press APPLY, select this new Frame Size and since all the Depth of Field caculations are automatically based on focal lengths, circles of confusion and so on, you're done.
