* They're not technically Matte Shots, but the same concept appears in a lot of late-1990s RPG games. ''VideoGame/BaldursGate'' (and the other Infinity Engine games, ''VideoGame/IcewindDale'' and ''PlanescapeTorment'') and games like ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'' had what were essentially paintings for a background with characters and monsters moving on top of them. There were areas you could go (floors, steps, hills) and ares you couldn't (walls, cliffs, etc.). The action took place over top of a painting, like in a Matte Shot.

** The AlienSky of Vorbis on "The Web Planet" - a huge, expansive and beautiful backdrop for some of the [[SpecialEffectsFailure worst-looking]] [[PeopleInRubberSuits monsters]] in ''Doctor Who'' history. The Alien Sky over Skaro is this too, in a MiniatureEffects shot.

* The Schüfftan process was an earlier variation that involved reflecting the picture or piece of scenery onto a mirror, removing the unnecessary bits of reflective surface from the mirror, and filming the actors (and the rest of the set, if any) through the now-transparent glass. First developed for ''Film/{{Metropolis}}'', it also shows up in movies like ''[[Creator/AlfredHitchcock The Thirty-Nine Steps]]'' (where it was necessary because in 1935 you couldn't really shoot a huge crowd scene inside the London Palladium), and according to TheOtherWiki, Creator/PeterJackson used it in ''Return of the King''.

* ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' uses quite a few of these, most notably during the shots of the apartment building, which change depending on how bad things are (the last shot of it has ''pure black smoke'' shooting out of the top).

* The film version of ''ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'' uses this for the Briny Beach and the railroad scenes. It's a lot more elaborate though, as only the sky was matted; everything else was real, but scaled to give the illusion of distance (e.g. the crops in the field were actually made smaller and smaller as they approached the matte backdrop).
