This thread is becoming quite nostalgic for those of us who grew up with cine film. Tom's comments about splices reminded me of how hard we used to strive to secure the ultimate pinnacle of editing achievement - the invisible splice! I finished up using Wurker splices which many workers reckoned wer...
