Christopher, your 'horror show' posting to the TIG
gave the telecine industry proof that Aaton can be wrong:
with v6.02c we over-protected the Keylink's prime
feature - its consistent frame-accuracy - by locking critical
engineering parameters up too well.
Given a choice, we would have preferred to hear your
opinion privately; this is the way another Manhattan transfer
facility engineer informed us about his concern on this subject
We immediately made him a version -6.02e- that allows colorists
to locally modify configurations attached to the film being
transferred, without altering the 'mother' configurations used
in other transfers.
For better and for worse
--jp (aka Dracula)
PS: We can make this v6.02e ftp address available to facilities
who want it.
