I would like to know more about telecine. What machines are currently most commonly used? What are the basic processes and stages of transfer? What does the colorist do exactly? Once the film has been translated to a video signal how is it general captured abnd stored and then digitized? What is requred, equipmentwise to go from start to finish? Once the film has been taken into the computer, edited, had CGI added and color corrected how is it then turned into an answer print and what equipment is required to do that? These questions may seem basic but, having never seen the process, I want to make sure what I think I know about it is correct. Thanks-The Captain B)

Go to Wikipedia. Look under "telecine" and "digital intermediate." Read. Then follow the links.

Dominic Case's book is the best reference I have found from Focal Press:
