  Work print

In 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.
