But most likely, they used a Oscar & Emmy award winning, propiterary,
process called (and made by) Ultimatte. A simple way to describe it being
a high-test chroma key....but not does kinda the same
thing...but in a COMPLETELY different way...and much cleaner & more
better...(yah, yah, I'm a tech, not a writer)
More information (and lotsa tech stuff) can be found at Ultimatte's web
site <>
