We have been investigating the different phenomena that affect the modulation transfer function response of the gated x-ray imagers and fast x-ray imagers that we use to record subnanosecond x-ray images at different laser facilities. As part of that investigation, we noticed that there is definite nonuniformity to the recorded images, even when the incident radiation was uniform. After a significant effort to track down that effect we found that the automatic developing processors, which process the film along the length of the roll, cause the effect. Manual development, which depends primarily on transverse agitation in the developer, and automatic processors that do not use a feed mechanism but emulate this agitation, do not introduce such artifacts. We recommend that for absolutely critical missions, such as target symmetry measurements, certain automatic machines should not be used.
