|In release printing,
it is recommended that there be a maximum of two
splices per 400 feet of 16mm or 1000 feet of 35mm.
These two splices may be insert splices, or one
of the two splices can be a raw stock splice. There
should never be two raw stock splices in the same
reel. It is further recommended that spliced raw
stock not be used in trial prints, dailies, TV spots
or recording prints. It is customary practices to
charge a premium for release prints that have no
raw stock splices.
