I think it's more a lighting thing. [In reply to] Can't Post

This problem's been around forever. Studio lighting is almost never good enough to match outdoor natural light, and the studio foreground will clash with the "outdoor" background. It always looks best when scenes that require either special effect or real outdoor backgrounds are shot outside in front of a green screen and not in the studio. PJ usually gets this right, but not always, and i'm not sure why. I just watched King Kong tonight on TNT and for the most part they did a great job. And the LotR trilogy looks good most of the time (Pelennor Fields), though if you look at the Dead Marshes, or Frodo and Sam's trek across Mordor, you can see that some shots were definitely shot outdoors, and some were obviously shot in the studio. The studio can look fine in night scenes, or in overcast scenes, or in a dark forest, but bright, sunny scenes shot in the studio always catch the eye.

As for how 3D affects this, i wouldn't know as i've never seen a modern 3D film. Curious as to what those that have have to say though.
