Definition of the noun Interpositive

What does Interpositive mean as a name of something?


  1. A specialized type of negative film stock that is part of the intermediate process that goes from an original negative to a release element (most common in the motion picture film post-production process). The material used is itself the same as in an internegative. The differences is that an IP has a positive image on it, while an IN has a negative image.


Interpositive: An interpositive, intermediate positive, IP or master positive is an orange-based motion picture film with a positive image made from the edited camera negative. The orange base provides special color characteristics that allow for more accurate color reproduction than if the IP had a clear base, as in print films.
