wratten filter equivalent on Super Chromega
I am looking for info on the equivalent to Kodak written filters #25 deep red, #58 deep green and #47b deep bleu on a Super Chromega colour enlarger. I want to make colour separations from slide film onto tri-x film 8 x 10, to use for gum printing.
Since the wratten filters listed have a different spectral cutoff than possible with the CC filters, you are going to be doing a 'loose approximation' only.
On the color head I would try maximum Magenta + maximum Yellow for the RED
maximum Yellow + maximum Cyan for the green and
maximum Cyan + maximum Magenta for the Blue.
Thanks- will give it a try... seems soooo obvious, should have tried that long time ago.

It might be useful in some applications though, and that depends.
