During the first season of the TV series, the visual effects of the cliffhanger ending were created using a "magic wall" which consisted of black-and-white electrical tape pasted across a piece of wood. The effect was achieved by shooting on a set that was only painted with the tape and used the camera's blue color filter to seamlessly transition between the light and the darkness. Special-effects techniques were not used during the season-one finale. For season two, most of the visual effects were purchased from Teleset, using Digital Fusion and Adobe Photoshop. These effects included the white/blue wire effect from the dummy pulsing sequence, the black lit crow effect, computer generated prison bars, and the spirit's power signal light. All of these effects were able to include clones of local extras and the remaining scenes were filmed where the main prison scenes were filmed. The effect of the wire was then combined with a "magic wall" in post-production to achieve the continuity of the events that had taken place so far in the series. All of the light was added into the dark scenes in post-production. The wax-effect of the barrier window was established by waxing a section of a real window, which was then scanned in, duplicated and then inverted to create a negative image of the real window.
Much of season two of Prison Break was filmed inside real prisons in Chicago and Joliet, and one prison cell block was built for the construction of sets on the show. Among these were three tiers of cells, a rooftop area, a forced-entry area, and the yard area, which doubled as the new prison infirmary. Some of these sets were already in use for other purposes at the time, so a small amount of the detention area was built using sequences from the first season. d2c66b5586
