    Default Yellow vs. White screen exposure times.

    First off, I'm sorry if this has been posted before and I'm reasking the question, but here it goes anyway.


    I had one of my frames re-screened from white to yellow (misstakenly).

    My white screens, expose in 5 minutes on the nose with my setup.



    With yellow, does anyone know if the exposure time gets cut at all, and if so, about how much can I expect?

    Make sense?

    (I'm lazy and don't want to have to waste emulsion to test the exposure time)

    yellow = more time

    try an extra minute or two.

    So do you have an example?

    Like if you had a white screen and a yellow screen same set up/emulsion/everything, about how much more time would you be burning for? (approx.)

    Don't buy it.
    It's a scam.

    In fact, with yellow mesh, you only have to expose for 1/8 of the normal time that took 30 seconds off of the original other 7/8 time to expose the yellow mesh in the first place. Pretty simple really.

    Oh, Hi Steve! Thanks. How long is your exposure time for white?

    AndyMac will probably come on here eventually and say that it's about 1/2 again longer than a normal exposure for white mesh. I'm pretty sure that's what he told me.
