Inverting a 16mm Color Negative in Premiere

I've used my DSLR to digitize a film I shot on Kodak Vision 3 color negative film. What is the proper way to invert the film in Premiere to get a positive?

if its an actual neg, you just use invert effect or flip the curves points opposite(or only bring them as far as they exist in the histogram)

then color correct normally as below

[Chris Wright] "if its an actual neg, you just use invert effect or flip the curves points opposite(or only bring them as far as they exist in the histogram)"

If it's a true film color negative this alone will not work, because you will have to account for the orange dye masking that was used to counteract deficiencies in the magenta and blue dies. This orange cast is visible when you handle most color negatives, still or motion.
