tween the feature and the short subjects is not necessary. Only sumcient regular material need be added to the second reel to allow the projectionist to rethread and re-trim the second machine (which was taken out of interlock at the end of the 3-D feature). Where 3-D short subject material is available, it can of course be put on the beginning of part one or the end of part two, if the necessary footage space is available on the reel.

As mentioned before, it is probable that some 20-inch reels will be used. This would mean two intermissions in the show instead of one. In making up studio reelsy it may be that consideration should be given to this possibility.

Stereoscopic release negatives will be coded in sync with the letter L in each footage number of the left print and with the letter K in each footage number of the right print. The letter K is being used because very few film numbering machines have a letter R.

All coding machines have six columns: some with two letters followed by four numerals; others with one numeral, one letter and four numerals.

In order that the same method of coding can be used with both types of coding machines, those machines which have a letter on the first column will

will carry the letter K in the second column.

The numbers 0000-0999 will not be used. Studio 3-D reel one, which makes up exchange reels 1L and IR, will be identified as REEL 1L and REEL 1R in the identification leader, and this left and right reel will also be indicated in the footage numbers by the use of the series L1000 and K1000. Studio 3-D reel two will be identified as REEL 2L and REEL 2R in the leader and by the use of the L2000 and K2000 series in the footage numbers. Reels 10 and above will be indicated by REEL 10L and

REEL 10R in the leader and by the 10,000 series in the footage numbers.

Care should be taken to make code numbers as legible as possible on the print, and the number should be centered on the frame of picture to which it applies rather than centered on a frame line.

TO SHOW THE NUMBERING METHOD to be used for all 8-D features the Council has provided the example of code numbers shown in the chart below used in making up a mythical thirteen reel feature. This is recommended on stereoscopic 3-D pictures only where two prints are proiected simultaneously in synchronization. the one a left eye print. the other a right eye print and used on proiection reels of 24-inch diameter. Care should be taken to make code numbers as legible as possible. and the number centered on the frame.
