Many optical printers have provisions for Bi-packing for FX work, we
just got a Producers Service Aireal Optical printer and all three
parts (The Aireal, Main Projector and Camera) have provisions for Bi-
packing. Bi_packed mattes are how bluescreen is done without
computers, for example. Contact printers are inherently a 'Bi-Pack"
but that is different..
