Online Edit/Conform, 2D VFX/Cleanup


This series had been slated for completion using a linear tape assembly method, which was standard at the time, especially for sitcoms.  Each episode featured many split-screen effects in which multiple images appeared in different panels at the same time - a storytelling device that would later become the signature of the TV show "24".

"The show would have taken too long using a linear assembly, because all the 'boxes' would have had to have been eye-matched and manipulated using the equipment in the linear bay.  We used a non-linear conform/composite system to complete the show, which was able to automatically re-create the boxes from the offline edit."
