Re: Problem film flats


In a message dated 96-09-05 03:32:31 EDT, you write:

<< The reason why the pick-up edit will not work is because the keycode
distance will be 
 shorter or longer, by a perf or two, where the TC operator stopped to
reframe .  
 Therefore, the Avid, who thinks that there was no splice (because the tape
timecode is 
 continuous) would be confused when making the negative cutlist.

This is true, but we are counting only the film frames, not the perfs.  The
Avid creates a cut list of film frames not film perfs.  The neg cutter will
be cutting film frames, not film prefs.  Why is the perf count so important
as long as the frame count is continous and accurate?
