Yesterday I processed a roll of motion picture film (it's kodak 5245) in spiral tank. I've used tetenal c41 3 bath kit.
The neg looks ok but as I expected there are some issues with remjet. I know that in ecn process removing it is one of the first steps. Unfortunately its not an option for me, as I don't have a place where I can dry the film in complete darkness. I've tried wounding wet film, but that does not work with my paterson spirals, the film is to slippery.
I've removed it with my girlfriends cotton pads after wash after blix. I think it didnt get into the emulsion, but there is some left on the spiral. I did not have time to check if the blix is messed up.
Is there some other way of cleaning the spiral than using an old toothbrush?
Is it ok for a film to develop it, stop, optionally wash, scrape off remjet, then dry, rewound on spiral and continue the process? Or alternatively do the scrape-dry-rewound after the blix?
