Re: Lit nacelle trenches?

Blue screen spill is frequently caused caused by having the model too close to the screen, the reflectivity of the object (why ILM dulled down the refit), or improper lighting. If you overdrive the light on the bluescreen and don't put enough light on the model to overcome any bounce, you're asking for trouble. Also, lab work can improve/degrade a matte, so chances are they eyeballed the shot and it looked ok, but when they went to the matte-pass step it wasn't as clean as it could have been.
