Wayne, yes, you got it wrong: I'm not asking about any agitation method. It was the OP.
Temperature and time
And Tetenal does not advise to rise the processing temperature, but to pre-heat at 39°C.
Which would mean to heat it seperately and then at the start of processing insert it into the 38°C machine.
Which does not make sense (to me). Especially as in the C-41 manual they advise to pre-heat at 38°, which just means rotating the tank for some minutes "idle" before starting the process. And in the C-41 manual there is no reference to inverting processing.
That 39°C and the prolonged time for rotating in the E-6 manual would rather make sense for inverting the tank outside a warming bath: using higher process temp. and longer time to counteract cooling of the drum.
As I said they made a mess out of that manual.
