What I have found most often is that the "creative editor," as opposed to
the "button pusher" [:-)] is not only just too lazy to go back into
off-line and generate a correct EDL*, but doesn't even want to bother
writing down the numbers/description to give the on-line editor.

I have never been given a good reason  for duplicate TC. I'm not sure if
"We'll find it." is good enough, but it will have to do.


*I am aware that there are times when the client is going immediately into
edit and can't go to off-line, but that doesn't explain not even bothering
to write down the new offset numbers.
