Frequently Asked Questions


The lowest profile backing on a pegbar is the best for scanning and shooting under a camera. That would be the Steel Pegbar which has a backing of 1/16". This comes in both Round and Acme.  The Aluminum pegbar has a backing of 1/8" and is still a lower profile than the plastic pegbars which have a backing of 1/4".

Pegbars are used for "Registration". Which means that they keep the drawings lined up to each other so the drawings can be filmed in the same way they were drawn. This keeps the drawings from "chattering" on the screen or bouncing around. The Acme Pegs have a round peg in the center and two elongated pegs, one on each end. The Round Pegbar has 3 round posts that are 1/4" dia.  Even though they look differnent, they both do exactly the same thing. They register the drawings, one to another. Both are in use at many schools and studios. As an example, Disney Adventures in Los Angeles and in Hong Kong are useing the Round Pegbar but Disney Feature is using the Acme Pegbar. So it comes down to your preference. Remember to select your paper to be punched to match the pegbar type that you are using. Acme punched for Acme pegbars and Round punched for Round Pegbars.

The "F" stands for "field". The field refers to what the camera will see when the page is shot under the camera. A field guide is used to mark the size of the shot. So When you order 10f size you are ordering a 8 1/2" x 11" size of paper. The 12f is 10 1/2" x 12 1/2" and a 16f is 12"x 17".
