Discontinuous 2:3

It is common for the electronic editing process to be performed post telecine. When editing is performed to 2:3 there is a potential for disruptions in the 2:3 sequence. These can be 3 field sequences adjacent to other 3 field sequences, and 2 field sequences adjacent to other 2 field sequences. Also there are cases where we have single fields present that are not part of any sequence (Orphan fields). These disruptions caused by editing create a “broken 2:3 sequence”.
