We recently pulled out quite a few 35mm reel from the vault for 4k restoration.
For some odd reason, all the interpositive were out of sequence. All the internegative,
however, were complete and in sequence. Both IP and IN do not have splices,
except for the leaders.
All of those interpositive prints were jumping from one sequence to another (out of order;
ie. you may have scene 3 then followed by scene 6, then back to scene 2, etc),
but each sequence/scene are complete, but some scene do have a few blanks
in-between the frame. Anyone know why?
Because of this, we are deciding to spend the time and cost to mainly for internegatives
at this point. Is this a good choice? Both IN and IP are using the same orange masked
fine grain stocks. Although it is one additional generation for IN, I assume the grain quality
should still be about the same as IP?
What is the best way to check the scanned grain quality? Are there software to compare
the grain quality or visually check on a monitor better?
