We recently pulled two reels that needs to be restored. Here are the facts.
The two reels are the same 15 minutes clip, except one reel is internegative and
the other interpositive. The only problem is that the IP seems to be raw or source
reel. In other words, the clip on the IP have each scene that are separated by
2 or 4 blank cells. Some cells contains the RGB info. Each scene are usually
about 10 seconds or less. The IN, however, is complete and final with all editing done.
And the IN comes with paper works for all the IN RGB configuration.
The question is if it is worth the cost and time to convert the IP, since it is at least
one generation early or just convert the the IN instead?
