Answer print

The first composite print made from the edited picture negative in 35mm film, or the A- and B-rolls of a motion picture in 16mm. Each shot is exposed, color-balanced, and otherwise processed. Further changes and corrections can be made in a second or third answer print, if necessary. In many contracts, the delivery of the answer print is specified because it means that post has ended and release printing can begin, although the release print is usually made from an internegative, not the answer print. The answer print is not the same as a black-track answer print which contains no soundtrack.
