Default StarSan residue/film?

Hey, I just recently switched to using Star San as my sanitizer instead of iodophor. On the only 2 batches of using Star San I've noticed a clear film that covers the top of the wort after fermentation has begun. Most resources say that this is probably contamination (Lactobacillus...) but the beer seems to taste okay and I have no weird odors. Is this film from the Star San? I've never had contamination issues before, just perplexed by this!

I've never seen an issue like what you describe using StarSan. Do you have a picture?

Please cancel this double thread. It's in Equipment/Sanitation already.
