I have a DVD player that allows you to zoom out giving you more of the picture. Sometimes this allows you to see things that are not meant to be in shot or other times just a black frame. I tried it with the new Muppets Movie. To my surprise all the shots below Muppet waist level shows their legs (except Kermit) and the Muppets with live action hands - their elbows with no puppet sleeves or puppeteers in view in almost every scene. This must mean blue screen was used in almost the whole movie? Perhaps it's something to do with the technique they used to remove the rods? Has anyone else tried this? What is unusual is, if they did this, why they did not show them purposely below waist more often. Perhaps it gives too much of a CGI type appearance?
