The head emulsion layer was once blue delicate; to prevent exposing incorrectly the emulsions lined underneath, it contained a yellow dye to soak up all blue gentle that entered it. lower than the blue delicate layer used to be a layer of transparent gelatin. This was once vital. under that used to be a blue-and eco-friendly delicate layer, one other gelatin interlayer, and finally a blue- and purple delicate layer. hence, 3 separation latent photographs have been made while the film used to be uncovered, blue within the most sensible layer, eco-friendly within the heart, and crimson within the backside. The processing from the film constitution. First the silver unfavorable photographs in all 3 sensitised layers have been built concurrently, and the yellow filter dye was once faraway from the blue delicate best layer. The constructed silver used to be then bleached and got rid of, and the rest confident photographs in delicate silver halide have been uncovered to gentle. All 3 layers have been then constructed in a cyan dye-forming colour developer. With the cyan picture accomplished, the film was once dried, wound onto spools, and faraway from the processor. In one other processor, the constructed silver and cyan dye within the most sensible layers have been bleached; the silver was once rehalogenized and the dye 184 Kodachrome motion pictures 185 destroyed. This used to be the most important to the method and used to be often called managed diffusion bleach. by way of timing it correct and beginning with dry film, Mannes and Godowsky have been capable of bleach the head layers thoroughly with no affecting the ground layer. The gelatin interlayer that supplied a margin of security used to be one ten-thousandth of an inch thick (2. five micrometers). After bleaching, the film used to be uncovered and constructed back. Silver pictures have been constructed within the most sensible layers, and the oxidised developer reacted with a coupler to shape magenta dye. back, the film was once dried, spooled, and fed into one other computing device that repeated the method of bleaching, rehalogenising, exposing and constructing to shape yellow dye. ultimately, the entire built silver used to be got rid of. In all, 28 steps have been concerned. an enormous modification within the technique used to be made in 1938; the drying and regulated diffusion bleach have been changed with selective re-exposure for the color-development steps. the entire variety of steps was once decreased from 28 to 18 . . . the trendy schematic diagram for pictures produced via this color reversal technique seems as determine 15 in bankruptcy 1. the trendy processing steps contain  first improvement  dye improvement  bleach and fix. determine 1 indicates the sensitometry for a standard Kodachrome low-speed film. The crimson, eco-friendly and blue curves were plotted as gray curves, the place the unmarked curve represents the golf green sensitometry. This sensitometry is acquired utilizing yellow magenta and cyan dyes of a little bit assorted spectral responses, in comparison with the color unfavourable film and of color paper. determine 2 info the dye curves. smooth Kodachrome films have the film constitution as defined in determine three, the place the protecting layers were passed over for comfort. the subsequent tables list the processing ideas, that are often called K-14M.
