Film List Creation Overview

In creating a film list, there are two basic methods Cinema Tools uses to locate a database record associated with a particular edit:

Cinema Tools always uses the clip-based location method when it can. If it doesn’t find a matching clip, it uses the timecode-based location method. If Cinema Tools cannot find a suitable database record with either method, an entry is logged in the missing elements list (if you chose to include a missing elements list in the film list). This process is outlined in the flow chart below.
