Anamorphic Conversions

The standard optical printer equipped with a specially designed "squeeze" or "unsqueeze" lens can be used to produce anamorphic prints from "flat" images, or to reverse this function. The possibility of the "flat" or spherical film being converted for anamorphic projection without serious loss of quality has greatly widened this field of theatrical exhibition. The manipulations available on the optical printer also make it possible to scan and reposition any scenes that require refraining when converted to or from wide-screen proportion.
