Question by Joshua: How are films that are digitally edited transferred to film for theatrical release?
I know that in the present, a lot of major motion pictures still have many scenes shot on film, then digitally transferred for editing. However, there some major films which use digital cameras exclusively. I also know that most movie theaters still project films using actual analog film, rather than digitally project it, which some theaters are starting to do for certain films. I was wondering how exactly the finished movie is transferred from a digital source to film.
Answer by biohazard
the final cut is saved on the computer and then exported to a reel, im not sure what the machine is called but it re writes the footage much like the same way footage is encoded and burned to a disc. in this case it is written to film
