4 Reduction ratio
The reduction ratio in the production of the head and foot leaders from 35 mm motion-picture film to 16 mm motion-picture film shall be in accordance with ISO 4238. 5 General specifications
5.1 Orientation and dimensions of letters and numerals in this document are with respect to 35 mm motion-picture films and are modified proportionally in accordance with ISO 4238 for 70 mm and 16 mm prints.
5.2 Information appearing in the leader which is printed lengthwise (in the direction of film travel) shall read from left to right when viewed from the projection lens towards the projector light source with the head end of the film at the right. Information appearing in the leader which is printed upright shall read normally when the reel is uppermost and the head of the film hangs down ready for threading (see Figures 1 and 5 for orientation of information).
5.3 All frames in the head-leader and trailer-leader identification sections (see 6.3 and 8.3) and in frames 1 through 171 of the head-leader synchronizing section (see 6.4) shall be masked to the nominal anamorphic projection aperture [20,95 mm (0,825 in) × 17,53 mm (0,690 in)] with clear framelines nominally the height of anamorphic projection aperture framelines [1,55 mm (0,061 in)]. Frames 172 through 218 of the head-leader synchronizing section and frames 1 through 87 of the
6.2 Splicing frame A single frame with the upright words “SPLICE HERE” and an arrow pointing to the frameline between this frame and frame 1 of the identification section to indicate where the protective section joins the identification section. The clear letters should be at least 3,2 mm (1/8 in) high on a black background.
6.3 Identification section The identification section of the leader shall be 43 frames in length. The identification section of the head leader, when viewed as specified in 5.2, shall be made up as follows:
— Frame 1 — Black.
— Frame 2 — The word “BEG” in clear letters 11,1 mm (7/16 in) high printed upright in the centre of the frame, on a black background.
— Frame 3 — Black.
— Frame 4 — The word “of” in clear letters 2,4 mm (3/32 in) high printed lengthwise in the centre of the frame, on a black background.
— Frame 5 — Black.
— Frame 6 — The words “Subject”, “Reel No.”, and “Language” in clear letters 2,4 mm (3/32 in) high printed lengthwise, on a black background.
— Frame 7 — Black.
— Frame 8 — The words “Length”, “Titles”, and “Track” with clear letters 2,4 mm (3/32 in) high printed lengthwise, on a black background.
— Frames 9-10 — Black. — Frame 11 — The words “Lab”, “Company”, and “Prod No.” with clear letters 2,4 mm (3/32 in) high printed lengthwise, on a black background.
— Frame 12 — The word “HEAD” in black letters nominally 9,5 mm (3/8 in) high printed upright in the centre of the frame, on clear background.
— Frame 13 — A 1/8 in (3,2 mm) diameter black dot in the centre of the frame on a clear background.
— Frame 14 — The word “PICTURE” in black letters nominally 9,5 mm (3/8 in) high printed upright in the centre of the frame, on a clear background.
— Frames 15-16 — Two frames in which the words “SMPTE Projection Leader” in clear letters are printed upright on a black background.
The letters shall not be less than 3,2 mm (1/8 in) high.
— Frame 17 — Four letter “X”s, printed in a lengthwise line adjacent to the 35 mm analogue photographic audio record, approximately 7,9 mm (5/16 in) from the 35 mm camera aperture centreline towards the 35 mm analogue photographic audio record. Letters shall be clear, 3,2 mm (1/8 in) high and 3,2 mm (1/8 in) wide, on a black background.BS ISO 4241 pdf download.
