I have this little dipute with a fellow worker about threading the platter. I say bottom up, he says top bottom. Give me your expert opinions and I will print this out and let him be the judge.

Please elaberate. Do you mean soundtrack up vs. soundtrack down? If so, then my vote is for soundtrack up. It's further away from the dirt that way. If you ever used a film cleaner, then you know the film is dirtier where it touches the platter.

When threading, it is important to keep the film off the dirty floor. Dirt that gets on the threading leader eventually works its way into the print.

Kodak's new VISION print film has a conductive anti-static backing to help keep the film from attracting dirt with static buildup.

On-line film cleaners are recommended to clean the print during each run and keep it clean and free of scratch-causing dirt buildup.
