4K Resolution

A number of people with much better heads than mine for this sort of thing have convinced me that the "hyper-real" quality of the Hobbit footage, which exposes the flaws of sets and costumes and makeup, has far more to do with 4K resolution than 48fps. There seems to be a bit of a consensus about this from people who know what they are talking about.

If this is the case, is it likely that PJ will be color-correcting these shots to such a degree that they will lose that fake look? Or is he looking to give us a much sharper image, with all the exposed flaws in production design that come with that?

If the latter, does this mean that no matter if we see it in 48fps or 24fps, we will have that same image quality?

For me, the 4K resolution is exciting when it comes to landscape shots (the ones in TH trailer were absolutely amazing). But it is very, very worrisome when it comes to sets and close-ups - really most of the movie.

My guess is that PJ and company will do everything they can to reduce that "TV" look that comes with 4K, particularly after yesterday's reaction. But maybe I'm just hoping as a fool does...

What say you?
