I've now inspected the print in good light and the cast is not as bad as I thought. In fact, I think I can filter it out without resorting to cyan. I might be able to have another go at printing it tonight.
This thread is timely for me as I plan on printing some RA4 with some Kodak EPP that I ran through my C41 process.
What would be a good starting filtration?
Do you start with the "normal" filter settings for what ever paper or...
seems crossing is so subjective considering the differences you get depending on emulsions.
How do you even go about starting so you can make judgements from there?
I only have limited RA4 experience but am getting a grip on correcting for a somewhat normal scene.
Yes, real RA-4 printing of E6 film processed in C-41 cross usually only lets you nail one tone, and the rest end up wherever.
To get a faster first pack, I usually toss in a blank c-41 film in c-41 developer blank rebate of film sandwiched with the crossed e-6 in c-41 neg in the enlarger neg carrier.
It will give you most of the red filtration you need to get started pretty fast with your 'normal' ra4 filtration.
I picked up on this when printing conventional B&W negs onto some (about 250' of 12" roll) RA-4 PortraB&W paper that came my way for a ($10) song. It has a slight magenta shift, but is handy to bang out quicky proofs if I have the RA-4 chems hot in the processor.
