Hi,

I have developed BW and color 16mm negs and I want to have them telecined. As most of the labs charge for swaping reels, I want to splice the negs together. So, Can I splice BW and color negs for telecine? Many thanks.

That's not a problem, as long as you're going with best light or scene-to-scene color correction. If you're going with a one light transfer, then you'll want to keep your reels separate.

So trere are no problems with the different film thickness from B+W to color ?

I've never had a transfer done so I dont know much about it - just interested (;

No.
It's that the B/W doesn't have the Orange mask, thus it requires a different "filter pack".

the main problem is that B&W has a very different gamma and light absorbtion in the telecine. I would recommend keeping all color and B&W on separate rolls, the telecine calibration is vastly different for each.
