Two Track or Three Track Transfer
In a nutshell

Two track or three track transfer consists in transferring, while listening, original dailies two track sound (¼ inch analog audio tape, DAT or Hard Drive), on16 or 35 mm perforated magnetic tape. Perforated tape rolling is paced on camera speed (24 or 25 fps), and, for 35 mm, a third track is created, mixdown of the two other (Three Track). Let's underline that before any transfer the technician searches for optimal azimuth using original tapes, and carries out level setting. These two stages are essential for signal true reproduction.
