if editing an original on 16 with a hot splicer, don't forget that the splices will show up in the frames, because you make your cut in the middle of the frame not at the edge.

whenever i have to edit an original in 16 without an a/b roll, i opt for tape splices because if you're careful and smooth enough, the tape lines line up with the frame lines and you don't see it. then i just warn the lab that i've tape spliced my neg.

good luck,

 A few more questions for you...
 Does anyone have a Maier Hancock hot splicer to sell for 16mm?
 Also, out of curiosity, how are the B & W reversal filmmakers doing? Still working in reversal, I hope?
 And does anyone edit their original? I'm still trying to find my way... just researching some alternative (of course economical) working methods. (Also I just got a bunch of tri x 16mm so I'm trying to determine what I should do with it).
