"Blue and green-screen effects pioneer Petro Vlahos dies

Mr Vlahos helped perfect the ability to superimpose actors on separately filmed backgrounds

The visual effects industry has paid tribute to Petro Vlahos - the pioneer of blue- and green-screen systems.

The techniques allow filmmakers to superimpose actors and other objects against separately filmed backgrounds.

He developed the procedure for 1959's Ben-Hur and then went on to win an Oscar in 1964 after creating a related process for Disney's Mary Poppins.

The death of the 96-year-old was announced by the company he founded, Ultimatte."

Bring back the Gallery!!!! please
We shall conquer and prosper, for WE ARE MOAI!!!

What color should we wear to the services?

Never trust a bald barber, a skinny chef, and never ever do card tricks for the group you play poker with.

Well don't wear green or you'll look like a floating head. On second thought, wear green.

Sometimes it's dark and stormy in my porthole.
