Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
CGI is distinct from blue/green screen, lith mattes, glass plates and other film process photography done in camera or lab. Glass plates are an example of the former and were used to add crowds to the stadium in 'Ben Hur', or distant houses in 'Gone With the wind'.

A large glass late is held in front of the camera, with the edges outside the camera frame. The added spectators (Ben Hur) are painted on the glass leaving a shape of clear glass through which the actual scene is visible. The master of this difficult work was Albert Whitlock"
