Hi Roger, what is the difference between “one light-prints” and fully timed prints? And is it true that Internegative prints used to be “one-light” prints?

Thanks for all your wonderfull work

One-light means that the roll(s) is printed to one set of printer lights, so usually timed to a grey card or grey scale at the head of the roll (or first roll of the scene.)

Timed means every shot is corrected.

After the final color timing of the cut negative, a color-corrected IP is struck so that any dupe negatives (IN) made from that and release prints only need to use one set of printer lights.

Okay, I see. Thanks!

How common were RGB printer lights vs CMY ?
