RE: Problem film flats

 While added handling of the film is always a risk,the practice of prepping 
film in this manner poses very little risk.Many labs did this at one time,but 
task seems to have become too time consuming unless the client also
needs prints(which require re-framing).Be assured that your customers are
getting service above and beyond the norm,at least in Los Angeles.Thank you
for the added effort.If anyone tells you that they do not always get updated
numbers over such a splice,remind them that the lab can not be held
responsible for the problems created in telecine when equipment and/or
individuals do not perform as expected.

Regarding perfs slipped in camera with resultant out-of-frame registration,
it has frequently been practice in labs processing and setting up for
telecine transfer to cut and splice the film, in the fogged area created by
the cameraman's aperture check, to maintain proper framing . We, for
instance, do that at Film Craft Lab in Detroit.  Is there any potential
problem in this practice for proper KeyCode operation ?
