I've been wondering, how far would in-camera effects have come if people had never turned to computer graphics? Like the stuff from the old Star Wars movies or Steven Spielberg's Poltergeist movie...what would special effects like stop motion and puppets and things look like today if CG never came along? I'd imagine they would've put MUCH more attention on realistic looking costumes, complex camera tricks, maybe robots or armatures, so it would have evolved by leaps and bounds in the last 20 years, yeah? I'm almost a bit saddened that we may never see the results of what could have been. =\
