The Post Group was founded as "Off-Line, Inc." in 1974 by Fred Rheinstein and had become "The Post Group" five year later. They were located on Homewood Avenue in Los Angeles and are currently owned by Matt Cooper. The company started with offline editing, but quickly expanded to include online editing, telecine, graphics, visual effects (VFX), and audio.
In the late 1980s and early 1990s, the company worked on the first four seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation and the first related film, Star Trek Generations. Their pioneering CGI work on the Crystalline Entity in "Datalore" was one of the first CGI sequences used in Star Trek. It was rendered by Chris Alsop. Other shows and films included Max Headroom, Pee-Wee's Playhouse, Titanic, Independence Day, and Apollo 13.
