The reason behind the fully CG Azog Can't Post

I wonder if we ever get the truth about Azog, maybe PJ will explain in the EE.
It seems to me that he wasn't originally supposed to be the antagonist in the movie. After all we have this Yazneg character who is riding the white warg in the lego set. We also have the conflicting reports of different actors portraying him.

I got the feeling that back in the 2 film days Bolg was supposed to be the main antagonist for Thorin, because he killed his father at Azanulbizar. Yazneg was one of his hunters who chased the Company in the first half of the film. I think that when the decision was made to expand the story into a trilogy, AUJ lacked it's baddie. Azog who formerly died was changed into surviving the prologue and was pasted over the filmed scenes with Yazneg, like in ROTK where they pasted the Troll over Sauron at the Black gate. This seems to be the true reason why Azog is fully CGI. The original actor played Azog in the prologue and they used Manu Bennet to mocap the later Azog to paste over Yazneg.
