Lemma 13.35.2. Let $\mathcal{T}$ be a triangulated category. Given full subcategories $\mathcal{A}$, $\mathcal{B}$ we have $smd(\mathcal{A}) \star smd(\mathcal{B}) \subset smd(\mathcal{A} \star \mathcal{B})$ and $smd(smd(\mathcal{A}) \star smd(\mathcal{B})) = smd(\mathcal{A} \star \mathcal{B})$.

Proof. Suppose we have a distinguished triangle $A_1 \to X \to B_1$ where $A_1 \oplus A_2 \in \mathop{\mathrm{Ob}}\nolimits (\mathcal{A})$ and $B_1 \oplus B_2 \in \mathop{\mathrm{Ob}}\nolimits (\mathcal{B})$. Then we obtain a distinguished triangle $A_1 \oplus A_2 \to A_2 \oplus X \oplus B_2 \to B_1 \oplus B_2$ which proves that $X$ is in $smd(\mathcal{A} \star \mathcal{B})$. This proves the inclusion. The equality follows trivially from this. $\square$
