A camera negative is preferable over all other material, but these are sometimes missing, damaged or destroyed. At the other end of the scale is a release print, sometimes borrowed from a collector. Discs made from release prints are easy to notice by the cue marks.
There were other prints made during the production process, how much of this material is kept after release varies. It's all done with a digital intermediate these days.
