    Help! Developed color film in Rodinal. How to fix?

    I probably should have checked this out earlier, but I'm just playing around, and the film's nothing critical. I have seen some nice results with color film and Rodinal, so I decided to try. I have some cheap expired Fuji 800 which I exposed at 400, and it's sitting in developer now. I do 90-minute stands most often with my B/W, so I figured I'd try that for starters. So in about an hour, I'll need to fix it. All I have is Clayton RF-19 Rapid Fixer. I just put a test strip of the film in this fixer and it doesn't seem to do anything! The fixer is fresh, and I gave it about 4 minutes and still couldn't see it clearing.

    What are my options here? Thanks!

    You need to clean/strip off remjet backing I think.

    Eh...maybe it's clear, now that I look more closely. Maybe it just looks different than the B/W cleared stuff I'm used to loking at. Anyone know if RF-19 would be expected to fix C-41 film?

    Does 35mm film for SLRs even have Rem-jet? Seems like a thing for movie films, from my initial Googling.

    No, I've no idea why Newt_on_Swings thinks it would have either

    I don't think c-41 films use remjet, but they do have an antihalation coating. You may be observing the orange mask in the film. Your fixer should have been sufficient.

    No consumer film has rem jet backing. Kodachrome was the last.

    It will be deep orange in color though, but there are ways to remove most of that posted on Kodak's web site.

    Thanks, guys. I'm going to assume the fixer fixes, and see what my scans look like.

    Very interesting. I had no idea you could process c-41 in rodinal and get anything at all. Curious to know how your scans came out.
