* ''Series/DoctorWho'' got into this in a big way in the 1970s after spending the 1960s preferring to shoot everything, even "outside" scenes, in a studio on video.[[note]]Though even then there were occasional exceptions, with the show's first film-outside moment occurring in the last story of the first series.[[/note]] In the 1980s, as technology improved, it transitioned into doing location shooting in video as well. It's been commented that ''Series/DoctorWho'' fans are rather good at spotting the difference because of the levels of use. It would be less noticeable on black and white episodes, which only exist as film copies of the original videotapes - except that for remastering purposes a technique called [=VidFIRE=] was developed, in order to restore the smoother 'video look' exclusively to scenes shot in the studio. Ultimately, due to a combination of difficulty with some film stock towards the end of his first season, as well as a severely reduced budget, starting with Creator/ColinBaker's second and final season, and lasting the whole of Creator/SylvesterMccoy's tenure, the series was shot exclusively on video.

** "Twice Upon A Time" caused some InternetBackdraft from a few highly esoteric corners of ''Who'' fandom due to the 1960s footage being used in that story not having been [=VidFIREd=].

* ''Series/SapphireAndSteel'', though only one of the six serials had location footage.

to:

* ''Series/SapphireAndSteel'', though only one ''Series/SapphireAndSteel'': The third serial, revolving around a strange family living in an apartment building, uses film for establishing shots of the six building and for a sequence set on the building's roof, and video for all interior scenes. (The other serials had location footage.are video-only, with even the outdoor scenes being studio sets.)

* ''Film/OverdrawnAtTheMemoryBank'' is all on video except for a sequence using footage from a nature documentary, as lampshaded by ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000''.

'''Crow:''' And I'm on film suddenly!



* ''[[{{Anime/Robotech}} Robotech: The Movie]]'' had a strange variation of this. The entire movie was film-based, but because it spliced in footage of two anime series, ''Anime/{{Megazone 23}}'' and ''Anime/SuperDimensionCavalrySouthernCross'', it was a messy mix of both 35mm and 16mm (blown up) depending on the scene. ''Megazone'' was originally an OVA and was animated on 35mm while ''Southern Cross'' was a less expensive TV anime animated onto 16mm, having a much grainier appearance as a result.



* Easily the most distracting thing about ''Series/FullerHouse'' is when they use stock footage from its parent series, ''Series/FullHouse''. In the opening, when they reuse shots from the original opening of the original show for the women, it's painfully clear what was originally shot on film and what the shots are that are upconverted from the videotape masters the rest of the show was shot on as seen [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5p6FYShbTBg here]]. Then there's the episode where they fill in the gaps of after Steve took DJ to their prom where they reuse the footage from that episode, then cut out the two of them when they kiss & put them against a high school wall to show them doing the same at their school. It ''really'' doesn't hold up to today's HD standards that well when you have something shot on video tape at 4:3 with a haze put around it that's then upconverted, then poorly put into a fame where the actors, shot in HD, at their current ages when filming are then green-screened into the same frame as that image. It's really jarring to watch.
* ''Series/TheXFiles'' was shot almost entirely on 35mm film but many of the visual effects and stock footage only exist in SD on the videotape masters. When the show was remastered for its Blu-ray debut, the film could be scanned in HD but the videotape elements had to be upscaled, creating some very obvious shifts in quality which were not noticeable previously.
* Many US sitcoms from the 70s-90s were shot on videotape, but their opening sequences were shot on film, including ''Series/{{Roseanne}}'', ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'', and the above-mentioned ''Series/FullHouse''.
* ''Film/SteveJobs'' was shot in ''three'' different formats: 16mm film for the first third (which took place in 1984), 35mm film for the second third (which took place in 1988), and digital video for the last third (which took place in 1998).

* The early seasons of ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' mixed video in the scenes with American actors with film in the Japanese SuperSentai footage. And fitting the trope name, most of the former is on soundstages and the latter on outside locations (specially [[BBCQuarry the quarry]] every single Toei production uses for fight scenes!).

** An even more obvious example came from ''[[Series/PowerRangersInSpace In Space]]'', ''[[Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy Lost Galaxy]]'' and ''[[Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue Lightspeed Rescue]]''- all three had various interior sets (mainly the Astro Megaship and the interiors of Terra Venture's command tower and the Lightspeed Aquabase) which would be shot on tape, but however they did it, it would have even smoother-looking footage than the normal American stuff.
