Race scaling visual effects Can't Post

I think one of the most impressive effects in this new set of films is the absolutely flawless integration of scaled actors in the same shot. There are too many to point out, but one great example is the shot where Gandalf is counting up the Dwarves at Bag End. They happen frequently in DOS, and it's clear that the techniques used to achieve the illusion are vastly improved (and different) from their 2001 counterparts, which I still love. To anyone who has the blu ray, do they go into any detail on how many of these shots were achieved?
