Hi Bob and others interested:

Sorry to "budd in". In the DPX format the TC is imbedded in the fileheader and read by Inferno/Fire/Flame.
The EDL module recognizes this TC and "auto conforms" as if it was video. All automatic including TW's. To give
you an idea of the speed we conformed a feature with 2000 edits (200 dissolves and speed changes) in 20
minutes. No need for any layoffs.

We charge around 45.000Us$ for the transfer of 90min. material for a feature  (a cut down neg. with 20 frame
handles) plus the grading of course. Would be interesting to hear what others do.
