Re: Pin reg differences

Rob mentioned different results from pin registration on different systems.
As Dean Humphus stated, repeatability of the camera's registration is the
key. It is also important to repeat what the camera did to have the same type
of pin movement on the pin gate as in the camera, as not all camera movements
register alike. Video Engineering lists a number of cameras whose pins
contact in the same location as the PINUP. In the event a negative was not
pin registered in camera, mechanical pin registration in telecine may even
produce a result less steady than real time would have achieved. Electronic
stabilization may then save the day.
