I strongly feel the only way forward for ilfochrome in analog is Ilfoflex reversal.
Mottle seems to be/have been an issue with Kodak Radiance R3 papers as well. So it's all about the Melinex polyester base... But what about the satisfying color balance? How do you manage that? Shame this thread is about to get buried since most people gave up on optical printing of slide film.
And really, where does one obtain Ilfoflex in Europe?
