About the Telecine Process

During a telecine session, sections of film rolls are transferred to videotape or directly
to a hard disk. A computer file, known as a telecine log, keeps track of which film frames
are transferred to video.

In addition to keeping track of the film frame to video frame relationship, the telecine
log also contains scene and take number information, film format and speed, and, if the
audio is synchronized to the video during the telecine process, the audio timecode
from the master audio source.
