RE: Problem film flats

   Of course JPB knows that only the Aaton Keylink,which he designed, offers
such a level of performance.If anyone is having trouble with the accuracy and 
dependability of Keycode reads they are not using Keylink.Thank you JPB.

Not at all, that is the best method... provided your Keycode reader can
on-the-fly detect the Keycode dot position related to the image
frame line.
(e.g. a pos.3 dot jumping to pos.1 after a splice could generate a 
one frame error in edit lists if the KC reader is not designed 
to perform instant auto-rephasing).
