9   Completion

Once you have all of the individual components of your project completed, the elements required by the delivery instructions will determine how you will finish your project. You can deliver your show as either a film finish only (not used in television), a tape finish only, or both film and videotape. Delivering your show finished on both film and videotape does not mean that each version will necessarily be completed at the same time.

The following completion components will be discussed in this chapter:

Film finish

Videotape finish

Color correction

Color correction for digital cinema delivery

Dirt fixes

Video in, film out

Formatting

Credits and titling
