Other Advantages of Telecine Transfers
In addition to color correction, a colorist working with a telecine has many other options
available, depending on what kinds of issues may have come up during the edit.
Â Using a telecine to pull the image straight off the film negative, the colorist can
reposition the image to include parts of the film image that fall outside the action
safe area of video.
Â With the telecine, the image can also be enlarged optically up to 50 percent
Â The ability to reframe shots in the telecine allows the director or producer to make
significant changes to a scene, turning a medium shot into a close-up for dramatic
effect, or moving the entire frame up to crop out a microphone that’s dipped
inadvertently into the shot.
