    I just bought a mega-boatload of Kodak movie film, and I've processed it (Vision 500T) according to instructions found here on APUG - namely, pre-washing with a washing soda (or baking soda) bath and agitating fiercely to remove the remjet, before C-41 processing as normal. The pre-wash water was indeed gray. Unfortunately, the film still looks as black as ever, only with barely discernible images and a slight orange hue, too dense to scan through. Am I doing something obviously incorrect?

    Yes soak for 5 mins in washing soda at 20c then hang and wipe the non emission side with new sponge wash sponge frequently rinse in three changes of water last change with surfant.

    Best to scratch mix an ECN instead of c41.

    I processed some Kodak EXR 100T the other day and I didn't see that it's that dark, can you post a photo of the negatives?

    It is hard to diagnose this problem as the film is not intended for C41 processing.
