Thanks to oktobor for supporting the TIG
Absolutely, We have had the same problems too. We have checked other capstan
based driven datacines and to our utter surprise, they all exhibit such a
"vertical weave" problem. Some more than others. We thought it was static at
first, tension then and eventually went back to the lab to analyse the base
of the film, but after satisfactorily eliminating all of the above, came to
a conclusion (perhaps prematurely) that it is the capstan based technology.
However the pin registered scanners we have were perfect time after time.
would  love to hear other users experiences.
