Ok. I checked the forums archive first and lots of info on the 2-perf subjuct, but nothing on the telecine process for this... :( Where can it be done...? Will some places do it if I send them a gate. I'm not interested in projection, just telecine to digital format tape. This old techniscope trick sounds perfect for me if only I knew of a solid place that would do the transfer for me. Any in the US? I found one place in Australia, but....that is a long way to go... ;)

Thanks for your time, Jonnie

I've heard that it's hard to telecine 2 perf.

Scanning it 2k should not be a problem.

Would be interesting if it was possible to telecine to HD.


Best regards,

Erik

Hi,

I don't know of any high end scanner with a 2 perf gate. They may exist but are not common.
A Rank telecine will need a special gate.

A Spirit or Shadow can handle 2 perf without modification, being a telecine can output to HD in real time. (HD is an option for Shadow, I think it's standard on a Spirit)

Just phone the post houses and ask them,

Here in Brisbane both 'Cutting Edge' using a HD Vialta and 'The Post Lounge' on a Spirit 2K will both transfer 2 perf to tape no problems.

I've shot some 2-perf, and I'm currently writing an article on it.

I've mostly delt with The Lab @ Postworks...

I had dailies done on a Y-Front\Ursa Diamond, but a Spirit or Vialta will also work well.

You might want the look at the archives of the Telecine Internet Group (TIG) at tig.colorist.org
