Feature Mastering Practices

Hey gang,

It has come to my attention that some colorists (and facilities) format
master tapes different than others. So my question is: Is there a
standard? (other than personal preference), and is the following used by
all facilities?

Part 1 starts with an A frame (3/2) sequence on fld 1 at the hour
Parts 2 thru x continue the sequence from where the last part finished.
(sequence and field dominace)

So if part 1 ended on a C pulldown and split field edit (say
01:58:28.05); part 2 would begin at fld 2 with a D frame edit

In the MPEG world of DVD and soon broadcast the 3/2 sequence is really a
hot issue for editorial purposes, most online systems don't know how to
make of this.

Geez, progressive sounds better all the time!!
