I'm guessing that Henk wants to make a digital interpos to print on to APHS
film to make a final neg, thereby eliminating the need to make a wet-step
Henk, you could always try this and see what happens. Usually an interpos is
made with much less contrast, so that final contrast can be controlled in
the making of the interneg. You're looking to make color seps for tricolor
this way, right?
