Pull Up definition
Pull up refers to the method of placing the sound 26 frames in front of the picture when creating a print. The term may also refer to the transfer of the sound from video sped up from video speed of 29.97 video frames/second to 24 film frames/second. This transfer has to be completed if the optical track is created after having mixed in video. The term may also refer to the transfer of the first 26 frames of sound on a reel. The frames are spliced on the sound of the previous real; this is done to prevent loss of sound once the film is printed with the sound pulled up. When the reels are attached together, 26 frames of the sound are removed.
