Work print


Any picture or sound track print, usually a positive, intended for use in the editing process to establish, through a series of trial cuttings, the finished version of the print.

The purpose is to preserve the original material intact and undamaged until the cutting points have been established. Once it has been combined with sound and picture and fully graded, it is usually called a trial print or an answer print.
