Reply to "be made "ing""

I think that, though dangling in a strict sense, participles are not so objectionable if used to describe the method in which things are or were done:

1.a) The movie was made (by) using a lot of special effects. (The use of a lot of special effects made it possible to make the movie.)

2.a) The top of the crate was pried open (by) using a crowbar. (The use of a crowbar made it possible to open the crate.)

Hi, Gustavo, appreciate on your additional comment.
