I noticed my VALKARIE print has text info overlayed
on random scenes on throuout the entire print.

Just curious to know if all prints have this or if I just got lucky.

Based on the fact some of the caption contain the word "PAINT", I'm guessing these numbers are related to whatever program the colorist uses to color-match scenes on the digital intermediate.

The numbers on the upper right are frame numbers, as they increment one-per-frame.

I've found these numbers on various scenes throughout the print.

From their position on the frame, it appears they should be masked
by the aperture plate and not appear on screen, if the projector is
framed properly for 1:85.

This image came from the very first scene on REEL 3.

Just curious: Did anyone else notice these on their print?

Search bait: Valkyrie

That's just the filename which was left over from when it was edited in Windows Moviemaker.

Yeah, even ran it without the aperture plate, to ensure it would not accidentally get on screen. It is way out of the viewable area. Will one day be a trivia question I'm sure.
