The only thing that makes me think green screen...

I posted it in the Oin/Gloin thread: If you compare the backgrouinds of Oin/Gloin and Nori/Ori/Dori, you find that they're the same but slightly metamorphosed between the two (the shapes have changed organically and have shifted in position relative to one another.) To me, it indicates that the background was either action-footage of some kind of fog wall or else cgi of a moving pattern, with the two photos being several frame elapses apart. It's not something that would have occurred as a result of 'shop blending, to my eye.

Of course, it is still possible that they used individual frames of footage and inserted them into the white background as you describe... wand, lasso, feathering, etc.. But the edges still have a different look that I'm not used to, and I just thought they might be taking advantage of some of the new capabilities they're using for editing composite shots in the film.
