Oh. How can you tell if the anti-halation layer has cleared?
sometimes I think it has, and then I see when I wash the film that it
is a bit bluish. I usually don't notice this until it's already in
the wash. Can you see it in the fix and clearing bath? I noticed
today that the hypo clearing bath was noticeably blue after I removed
the films from it. I guess that means that some anti-halation stuff
came off in that bath.
