The only thing nobody's really mentioned so far is a reminder that you
you're limited in being able to "play around" with moving a cut 2 frames
one way or another, over and over, to correct rhythem/match/etc. -- the
splice you make is pretty much the splice you're gonna have permanently.
(This may be more or less of an issue depending on what your footage is
like, and how much working it needs in the editing.) So you might want
to make a (can be rough) video transfer and edit that, and then match
the film to it when you're happy with it.

Also, you might want to think about getting a good interneg from your
finished film before you run it too much, so you've at least got a
fallback to what it was at that point. No arguments with the comments
about the aesthetics of print wear upthread, just ... it *can't hurt* to
be able to change your mind later.
