Robert, I'm going to ship this reply to the group as I think it may be
of interest (your reply went only to me).

You know, rethinking the thing for a minute, I realize that sometimes
I actually do a final xfer before offline edit, for certain
budget-minded Directors --interestingly, they seem mostly to be
Arizonans-- when they come in they have usually a very good idea of
which shots they want in their spot (good script notes and an accurate
memory of the shoot), so we transfer either close to everything or
else we skip a few obviously NG takes.  These commercials end up
showing in Phoenix for some reason I have yet to figure out.

Here in Hollywood, I think neg cutting is down to a science, I just
don't have the dirt problems with it that I used to have occasionally.
I can understand if there are no good cutters in your area.  It is
approaching a lost art anyway...
