I get my TAF from George Gush, the telecine specialist in the LA office.
They do seem to ration it out but he comes through when I make a request.

A question: What do most people really use TAF for? Is it a daily setup
tool? Do you actually use it to set up daVinci basemems or even user
defined masking? BTW, I have been trying to find some reference material on
how URSA masking can be set to a particular film stock. What is the proper
method?

A SMPTE group (under Paul Chapman) has been kicking around the idea of
operation alignment films. The idea is that SMPTE A&R and TAF may be more
an engineering setup and evaluation tool and that purpose specific films
may better serve the needs for daily operational checkout and adjustment.
