Re: Animated Series Blu-Ray Plans

^Thanks for the explanation. Yeah, Filmation did a lot of in-camera, latent-image FX work rather than using an optical printer. On Space Academy in 1978 they did some impressive in-camera compositing with miniatures for their space shots. In the following year's Jason of Star Command, they upgraded to bluescreen mattes, which gave them more flexibility in how the ships moved and interacted, but looked a lot worse in some ways because of the obvious matte lines.
