If you want to learn more, pick up The Hobbit Blu-ray says Letteri. "We go into deep detail about the visual effects," he enthuses, "really breaking down how the characters were created. Fans will get to follow the thought process that goes into the overall design through to how we created the final shots for the movie."

I wonder if it is still possible to save this very interesting interview from further scatological comments. No? Oh, well, Frown, you want a nice thing to go out into the universe, but sometimes bird poo happens.

Sorry, Lissuin [In reply to] Can't Post

But we're talking about VFX in the thread below! This is a great article, though! It always confused me that people said the CGI looked worse in 48fps. I thought it improved the CGI, for the same reasons Letteri says here. It's sharper and smoother without all that blur and juddering. I loved the new format, even if it took a little getting used to.

Thanks for sharing Smile I love all this CGI stuff and can't wait for the bonus features - and the idea of seeing Smaug soon is really becoming exciting now.

What I liked [In reply to] Can't Post

I had never noticed before the blurring on movement of 24fps. It is very noticeable to me now. The Bag End scene is a really good example of that. I really felt the 48FPS immensely helped that. Oh and remember all the talk about how "the movie is making people sick". Funny how that really didn't happen.

Just on the Blu-ray? [In reply to] Can't Post

I'll be a very ticked off Tolkien fan if the DVD and Blu-ray have different extras.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Again, I agree [In reply to] Can't Post

At one of my two viewings in 3D 24fps, the Bag End scene in particular was very blurred. The 48fps was always wonderful (about ten viewings), though – unfortunately it doesn't appear to be showing in cinemas in the UK anymore. I didn't get any of the 'placebo' effects that some of the film's detractors mentioned ('getting used to it', blurring, feeling sick, etc, etc, etc). I just love the format.
