Precision in marking up picture will help assure the best possible synch. In 35mm there are four perforations per frame (as opposed to the one in each 16mm frame). This allows us greater accuracy in positioning the sound opposite the closed slate to determine the best synching position. Here is how we differentiate between two possible cases -- one in which there is a clear slate and another in which the slate is blurred.

In this example, there is a slate which is clearly open in one frame, and clearly closed in the next. You should mark an 'X' on the completely closed slate's frame. In this example, there is a slate which is clearly open in one frame, blurred but also closed in the next, and clearly completely closed (without a blur) on the third frame. You should mark an 'X' on the non-blurred completely closed slate's frame.

 




Though I've tried to accomodate other browsers THIS SITE IS DESIGNED FOR BEST USE WITH IE for the PC, SAFARI for the Mac, and FIREFOX for both the PC and the Mac. It also looks reasonably good on the iPhone. Lucked out on that!
