No,ILM used good 'ol fashioned stop-motion for the At-Ats.I believe Go-Motion (developed by Tippet) was first used in Dragonslayer for the flying sequences and some of the walking/crawling sequences.Not nearly enough of the dragon was used/seen in that film.It is still THE BEST Dragon on film next to Ray Harryhausen's work in Sinbad.That's just me though.

Nope, Go-Motion was introduced in ESB for the Taun-Tauns and the AT-AT´s to achieve some motion blur.

That's tue, and I can confirm that Tippet says as much in one of the Blu Ray Empire interviews.
I think the Making Magic CD had a portion about GoMo already, and I think I can remember seeing the classic Tippet behind the AT-AT in the Video that came in the THX re-issue stardestroyer box as well.
