Re: Vintage FX: Star Trek vs Lost in Space

^Right. Ideally the blue should've been completely filtered out and left only black behind, but a little bit of light did make it through the filters.

However, it should be noted that the garbage-matte halos were more subtle on the feature film screen, otherwise ILM never would've found the results acceptable. The halos became far more visible once the film was converted to video and broadcast on television, due to, I guess, the conversion process increasing the contrast somehow.
