Cutting on Workprint

There are many advantages to seeing a cut workprint of your film in a screening room. It is important to see your work as the audience will screen it. This is by far the best way to finalize your editorial decisions. Many filmmakers either cut their work print without transferring the raw footage to video, or conform a work print to their locked digital edit. Because of the ease of conforming your negative to your cut work-print (versus a video tape) it is more economical to conform.

For help in preparing your edit for a workprint negative cut, be sure to reference our workprint support pages.
