To indicate a straight cut, a single vertical line should
be drawn through the tape splices:
indicate an unintentional cut (when extra frames of the same
scene are added back in), 2 horizontal lines should be drawn
through the tape splice (an equal sign).
should be no frames missing in the workprint, but if some
frames were lost or damaged replace
them with the exact number of frames of leader, and draw an
arrow through the frames of leader to the end of the shot:
fades (in or out) use a V laid on its side, and drawn the
length desired with the point of the V always pointed to or
from the black:
are marked by using a single vertical line to indicate the
beginning and end, with a diagonal line drawn from the bottom
of the tape splice to the top of each vertical line.
titles are marked with a wavy line drawn over the background
hot. Use a vertical line to indicate the beginning and end.
Draw a circled number to reference a description of the effect
on a cue sheet:
exposures are cut to length into the primary shot. Mark the
beginning and end with a wavy line drawn through the cut points,
and draw a circled number to reference a cue sheet.
