Pulling a Matte

I wrote a big post about how I had to take a still image of Brian's ship and shot it with Blair's camera. It was a brilliant, witty, erudite, and enlightening post about the process. But Firefox crashed and even though I'd "saved" the post in Blogger, it is now gone.

That's no bluescreen, it's a spacestation it's a still image with the background cut out in Photoshop.

It means we're animating in 2D rather than 3D. So the disabled ship rolls slightly as it falls from camera in the shot, but it can't "yaw".
