When a reel is transferred with a hole punch representing a specific time
code number, write that relationship on the box or can that the film reel
is stored in, along with the frame rate. No guessing involved. Likewise if
a reframing is necessary mid-reel. If no hole punch is used, but instead a
specific keycode number, it's not much harder to write that down. The
colorist doing the final grading (not to mention the client:-), will be
much happier.
