JC, I wish it were like that here.  Sometimes the effects-box artists
do take care of it for me, but many times they want the film
pin-registered to have it as steady as it can be for them, so that
they don't have to do as much stabilization.  I sometimes think it is
actually a political decision-- that if there are problems tracking a
matte in Henry, and the film was not 'pin-registered', blame is
assigned to the transfer.

I'd like to hear more about this from other colorists.
