Thank you James. The proportion i mean is related to all the matte work you do, so f.ex i understand from your answer that half of your matte painting work is 2.5d.
Question D, i meant, of all matte painting you have done (100%), how many print, tv, etc, like print 20%, tv 40%, ...

Sorry if i am unclear, should rethink the questions..


Thanks anyway, i hope more professional will answer in order to have a better overview.
