Telecine transfer - Negative?
Posted 22 June 2008 - 11:57 AM
Once I've shot some more film I intend to get a TK transfer onto DV.
Will it be best for the telecine transfer to be done using the original negatives or the print?
Reason being I have played the print a few times and there are a few scratches on the film. Basically I would like to know the pros and cons of using the negative for telecine transfer.
Thanks for your help!

Negative. The only con is the wear and tear of running it through the scanner, and you'll never do that more than 3 or 4 times. The print is already one generation removed from what you shot.
A print has far less information as it's higher contrast. Transfer the negative on a good telecine.
