Oh, one surprising change I have noticed. Shoes are optional in New Zealand and most days Peter shot LOTR barefoot as a hobbit. But on The Hobbit filming he was always well shod, padding through the leaf mould and rubble of the sets in regular footwear.


Now that I find really unfortunate! That he lost weight and glasses -okay, but no more barefoot PJ... that's an end of an era!

The fact that Peter doesn't [In reply to] Can't Post

With 4K miniatures wouldn't have looked very good on screen, so it's an understandable decision. [In reply to] Can't Post

I've said it before [In reply to] Can't Post

I'd rather have more believable CGI than a miniature, despite miniatures being more awesome.

Yes, I think the old analog photographic film was around 6K (as an average) [In reply to] Can't Post

Resolution on analog film depends on exposure so it's an average.
If I rememeber correctly, the (analog) IMAX format is around 10K (average).

I suppose so [In reply to] Can't Post

It seems large sets and prosthetics also don't look very good with 4K either.

What else does 4K ruin, I wonder? Wink

What large sets and prosthetics are you looking at? [In reply to] Can't Post

'cause the stuff I've seen looks fabulous. Wink

Lets hope...that he didn't get cold feet.

We've already seen Rivendell looking just as good as it did as a miniature, and I'm yet to see anything that would suggest obvious CGI in the goblin caves, either. I don't think that you need to be concerned. Especially when Jackson keeps using practical sets whenever he can.
