Hi again,

first I would like to thank the forum-ers very much for the valuable help they are providing me.

I have another little problem (again, all related to 16mm), I have started filming in Orwo NP7 double perf, then for some scenes, I used kodak double-x (single perf).. Can I splice the double with the single perforation films together prior to telecine? Does anyone think that the telecine places would mind? Many thanks.

If you're doing a telecine for editing, then you shouldn't be splicing it at all - you just let the transfer house take care of transferring each of the rolls.

We prefer rolls to be made up in lab rolls of about 1200 to 2000 ft before beginning the transfer. They are spliced and cleaned before transfer. If you bring individual rolls we will ask if they may be spliced together. if not a minimum charge of 15 minutes per roll will apply.

Mixing single and double perf is no problem.
