Having a foot on both sides of the fence, may I bring my perspective
to your and Mike's 'alarmed' observations?
As a telecine code reader manufacturer we are doing our best
to properly handle Acmade numbers(1); yet as the AatonCode inventor
we promote in-camera TC recording which makes rubber-numbering
redundant in many of its applications.
(1) Keylink was for years (still is?) the only machine simultaneously
handling Acmade and Keycode transfer databases; now - further to
Jim Mann's request - it will automatically take care of
Acmade/Mag-Follower non stop transfers.
AatonCode (Aaton/Panavision/Moviecam) brings the many advantages that
Acmade offers, but it eliminates the time consuming rubber
printing, while it automatically syncs the sound.
Thus I am not surprised that a "prominent" N.Y. facility
(see BT's mail below), more exposed to AatonCode transfers
than to the good old rubber numbers, has never had to know of
the Acmade process.
I would like to thank you for your Acmade tutorial
(it's the best I ever read on the subject); it will help a good
many TiG lurkers find out more about this system which has a lot
to offer to edited-print transfer.
