    Touche!!

    Stephen Frizza's example there is an awesome one.

    The comment about static subjects could be rememedied with a one-shot camera...

    Dye-transfer is definitely not the only way to do this and as has been discussed, is a difficult process to "jump into" due to the lack of supplies readily available. Tri-color carbon would probably be a better option, carbro, etc. Not to mention tri-color gum bichromate. Or, one could tone the separations individually with chemical and/or dye-toning to achieve loose seps that could be registered for the sake of display/scanning/printing.

    Lastly, I'd like to know more on the last comment about IR screen-plate (autochromes) photographs. I actually had this same idea but can't quite reason how it could be done. The screen would have to go thru a registration shift, since the encoding filter would have to be opaque and the viewing filer would have to be red....... [... another day i s'pose]

    hmmm...that explains a lot!

    Ah-ha, thanks holmgurgers, that was exactly what I was looking for! Now, what infrared film is closest to the curve of the cyan layer...

    I would go with Rollei Superpan and use an rm72 filter or a #87 if the subject permits long exposures. I have also had excellent success with Rollei IR.

    I have had decent success with the Efke IR films but I have also had spurious quality control issues. The Efke IR probably has the deepest IR sensitivity on the market right now, and if you like halation they have the version without the AH layer.

    One slight mark against the Efke for colour sep work (which will require several good negatives) is that it scratches more easily than the Rollei. Of course, you could simply be more careful with it...

    For me though, superpan is tops.

    Hmm, thanks for the suggestions! I think I'll probably go for the Rollei IR in 4x5 and bi-pack it with ortho film. I can't wait to see what comes out!

    Edit: Just had another thought. What if we used infrared imagesetting film? As far as I know, imagesetting film has a much narrower band of sensitivity. The only problem is that imagesetting film is naturally high contrast, but I'm sure it could be toned down with the right developer combination.

    I don't know anything about the spectral sensitivity of imagesetting film. Anyway, you probably want to use a film that can handle the blue, green, red and IR separations equally well. Then you just swap out filters and shoot the different frames in series on the same roll of film, develop them all together...

    Haha, that would be a lot easier! Now I just need to order some wratten filters...

    happyjapm64, although I think it's a cool idea I'm not sure if this bipack method will work.

    First, how do you intend to match the speeds of the two films? Is there an ortho film that is slow enough and a IR film that is fast enough to make for the same exposure times w/ this bipack? The IR has to go thru the ortho film and a red filter, meanwhile the ortho film is right on top w/ no filtration.

    And also, since the ortho would be, as you said, a record of the green & blue, it's not a true color separation by any means. Same goes for the IR layer which thru only a red filter won't be 100% IR.

    So false color it surely will be, but Color EIR it certainly can't resemble (why am I talking like Yoda?). That being said though, it could still be very interesting.

    The best method would be a one-shot camera (not practical... prohibitively expensive IMO) or just using filters and taking three individual shots. However, I do like the idea of bi/tri-packing it, but the particulars need to be ironed out.

    yes, thats exactly what I was thinking. The ortho film would most likley be the same speed, if not slower than the infrared film, but, that could be fixed in printing with a loss of dynamic range.
    I just think this is a neat experiment!
