traditional film-based work, a work print means a film reel,
onto which the material is edited
from the positive copies made from the film negative.
Thus there is usually only one work print that, after the
editing, is taken to the laboratory
to the negative cutter, who edits and combines the original
film negative according to the work print.
In computer based non-linear work, a work print usually means
the edited version, sequence, which will be made at some point
into the so-called final version, according to which the film
negative (or digital video) are made into release prints.
