35mm actually allows up to 6 tracks on full-coat, with many other varients:
I've seen one-track, 3-track, 4-track and 6-track 35mm mag-film recorders and dubbers.
I've never seen a 16mm full-coat mag-film, just 17.5mm. I'm sure 16mm exists, I'm just not sure of
any standard formats as far as tracks. I assume single-track was definitely an option.

In my experience, there is usually just one track on 16mm fullcoat. 35mm fullcoat allows room and
width for three tracks or stripes if it's been coated that way.

Does anyone have information about the standard used to record audio on 16mm full coat film. A
project came in where the audio for the film is on full coat 16mm and I wonder how many tracks could
there be or how many formats. Any info or links will be appreciated.
