    Time bubbles, Time Portals and Time Domes make up this sequence from Lost in Space. Effects were created by compositing a combination of digital set extensions, Dynamation particles, Alias models, elaborate texture maps and live action elements. Furthermore, Cinesite’s research and development teams maximized efficiency by developing a 2D technique where a 3D tool would have been the obvious choice: Cinesite developed a glass and procedural pattern tool as a replacement for a more time intensive ray tracing with motion blur solution.
