Be Careful Using Still Frames and Speed Settings
If you use still frames, give all of your stills distinct reel names. It’s good to identify the
source clips that are taken from graphic stills.
Keep speed settings to even percentages for optimal results. For example, use 50%
speed rather than 57% speed. If you plan to export your EDL for a tape-based online
edit, this may be important. Some video decks work well at a certain range of speeds
for either slow or fast motion. Ask your online editor for a list of acceptable speeds.
Variable speed adjustments are not supported by most tape-to-tape systems.
