The Bell and Howell printers will mostly pass tape splices, but they always have a little registration problem when the splice goes over, even if you add a few frames of slop.
You can do it... I once conformed a 400 foot documentary entirely with a Presstape splicer (very very bad idea). But for the most part, cement splicers are very cheap today because there is little demand for anything that can't work on a modern print. I have seen Meier-Hancocks on ebay for little more than the cost of postage. I paid more for my full-size M-H splicer than I paid for my car at the time. Now it's hardly worth the cost to store it. The world is a strange place. --scott _______________________________________________ FrameWorks mailing list FrameWorks@jonasmekasfilms.com https://mailman-mail5.webfaction.com/listinfo/frameworks
