This forum is so helpful, thank you all for bein' so kind with your help.
Ok, my new issue is the editor feels strongly that the sound should be synced at telecine, 'cause if assistant editor does it and it goes out of sync there won't be a way to easily sync it. I'm thinking it would be a waste of money if I had the colorist do it 'cause I'm paying him $450/hour and my editor gets $500/day. Unless the colorist could do it really quickly. We used the smart slate. What's the right way?

You may need to post more details before your Qs can be answered. Are you using the old timey platter editing or are you doing it digitally? It is sensible to maintain sync from the beginning of post. While your picture guy is working the images, your sound guy can be massaging the sound. With a platter cut, you have to keep very accurate paper records of the pic cuts so your sound guy can conform. If your going digital, then conforming is a little easier.

I think getting synch sound on the Telecine tapes makes it a whole lot easier to coordinate between picture and sound editors. Colorists should not be the ones handling sound synch. The only exception I can think of is where a DI facility like ourselves will often take the *finished* soundtrack and simply line that up with finished picture to create a digital cinema master.
