    Color mask remaining on cross processed film

    I developed e6 film in c41 chemistry, the temperature was correct, the chemistry was mixed properly, and used the proper times, reccomended by the chemistry manufacturer. You can see the negative development, the image is there,

    However, there is a blue color mask on the entire roll of film.

    Ive done this thru pro labs before, and its supposed to come back with clear edges with no color mask. Any ideas of what went wrong and if I can fix it?

    Thank you for any help you could give me,
    Lisa

    It could be that the film is wet, also, the film could be fogged / old. I've had this problem whilst developing old E-6 in C-41

    How blue? Light blue that you only really see between the frames? Or deep blue?

    I wonder if you can try bleaching/fixing again?

    its deep blue, but i can still see the image frames. ive put it back in blix for a very long time and it was a bit better but not enough to salvage them as yet.

    It has been reported that some Fuji films do this. The layer that allows correction of fluorescent lighing defects seems to be the culprit according to some accounts, and others blame the retention of a new absorber dye Fuji is using in their reversal films.

    If it is not either of those, it is fog.

    There is no mask in E6 films to otherwise cause such a problem.

    I've seen this with Fuji Astia 100F, but not with Kodak Elite Chrome 200. My sample size is small, though -- just one roll of the Fuji and two of the Kodak. I was able to get good scans and/or prints from most of the frames of the Fuji, but it took some extreme filtration values to do so.

    When I worked in the local lab here, any fuji films we cross processed had a blue cast to it, and we ran it through our regular C41 machine, we did not have that problem with the Kodak films.
