Dear Mr. Pappas:
 I am sorry, but when I answered Dave C.'s question I did not consult the DuArt
brain trust before I started typing. I do not speak for Duart as a whole just as
a Colorist answering a question from my point of view. Mr.Pappas you should
not be alarmed, I have transfered countless acmade jobs during my 9 years at
DuArt and
every job had accurate burn-ins and flawless "SMPTE A" 2:3 precision. 
I admit I did not give the use of acmade numbers downstream of the telecine
much thought when I framed my answer. I am always concerned that the color 
of the print transfer accurately represented the projected image in the
screening room and that all the numbers are dead nuts on. I thank you
 for your post I found it most informative.
