I am currently finishing up the post process on my 35mm short. I am finishing on film and I am looking the best possible way to master my film for DVD/festival purposes. I originally wanted to telecine off the cut neg however I was told that is a near impossibility do to the fact that I would have jumps from the cuts. The next best alternative is the IP, but are the quality benefits enough to offset the costs (nearly 4 times the cost of a release print).
I'm looking to make no more than 3 release prints therefore an IP to IN to release is moot. However I don't want to telecine a release print of the look is going to be anything less than professional. I've been looking everywhere for some literature on the IP process, and have had little luck. If you have any references or advice I would greatly appreciate your response.
