Very interesting article! But I think you got some quotes mixed up in your first post - I advocated holo panels.

King Daniel Into Darkness - Yeah, that floor painting is truly a piece of work!

So is your combination of two separate shots into an "IMAX" sized one.

The floor painting turned up (partially) in TWOK as well, during Kirk's inspection of Engineering. As for what it looked like from other angles, wonder no more:
I'm not that sure, wasn't the "intermix tower" view down a genuine matte painting? (and those painted on FP struts on the studio floor mostly guidelines for this matte painting?). Had the whole thing been a matte painting that "crack" in the line half a level down (bottom right) probably wouldn't be there.
