Many a true word spoken in jest

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
(at NAB).
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

PS: We can make this v6.02e ftp address available to facilities 
who want it.
