    As Claire said, even cutting at a 90 across the film works...

    Do not cut through a sprocket hole but rather between two. If you do this you will have no problems.

    Won't work on OM's - the slot doesn't go the full film width, only about two thirds. I'll bet the "nipping a triangle off the corner" thing will work just fine, though. I'm going to try it.

    Just avoid:

    1) cutting through a perforation; and
    2) leaving a tear in the film that might expand,

    and I think you will be fine.
