Importing a Telecine Log to Create a Cinema Tools Database

Each time a shot is transferred from film to video during a telecine session, an entry is
made in the telecine log, containing the edge code start number and the corresponding
timecode start number on video. The ending edge code and timecode numbers are also
recorded. When you import a telecine log, Cinema Tools creates a database that tracks
the relationship between video clips in Final Cut Pro and your original film footage. As
you edit, you refine video clip start and end times. At any time, Cinema Tools can use
the information in the database to map a video clip start or end time in Final Cut Pro to
the corresponding edge code of the original film.
