    Default Burning with Ulano QTX

    I know its a trial and error process, but i was wondering if anyone can give me a rough percentage of exposing time difference between Ulano TZ and QTX. I just ordered some QTX. I used to be able to burn a screen with TZ in about 2min 15sec. I only ordered a quart of QTX because it was so damn expensive, so if i can cut down my trial and error time, that would be groovy.

    thanks

    sounds about where I'm at. There's an exposure time table on the Ulano site for different exposure units/light sources - I found it pretty accurate.

    We're using 3x500watt bulbs at about 30" and getting exposure times between 50 secs and one minute.
