A question: What do most people really use TAF for? Is it a daily setup
tool? Do you actually use it to set up daVinci basemems or even user
defined masking? David Tosh  dlt at earthlink.net  (CIS 72167,1376)

Well, we just use it as a ballpark tool. We find that TAF is consist-
ently inconsistent... not with other TAF but with a tyical client film.
Usually the error is that if we set up to TAF, the session neg is way 
too green. But as a general morning checkout it's as good as anything 

We generally do not engage masking. The colorists find it more limit-
ing than helpful. I am not sure I agree with this from an engineering 
sense, but the proof is in the pictures, and the guys have not had any 
real trouble attaining award-winning, awe-inspiring, god-humbling and 
generally OK-looking pix with the range of control offered by both 
Sunburst and DaVinci.
