RPC and Professor Pixel:
Semantically, you both just might be correct, but I do not know for sure.
Actually, what is the precise definition of 'mask' as applied to photography? This is an interesting quandary that you have brought up. I naively thought that a mask was simply a 'screen' that could impart overall color or, really, anything else. Inform us. I know that the reason for the orange is to correct the hues (blue?) which could not be fully corrected with the couplers.
(And with Professor Pixel living right next to Kodak in Rochester, he just might know something!) Of course, both of you, I do not think that I am the first to use the word in this way, but, nevertheless, I wish to be correct. - David Lyga
