2nd Hobbit trailer footage from Comic-con Can't Post

Hello everyone.

I noticed people saying that there was some footage in the second trailer that they already saw at Comic-con. Is it possible that that is the reason the CGI does not look as perfect as some part should ? I wasn't really stunned by Gollums eyes for example and the look of Rivendel. I loved everything else. What do you guys think ?

Yes part of the trailer has scenes shown from CC [In reply to] Can't Post

but i didn't notice anything wrong with the cgi effects. Or maybe i need to look at it again.

Rivendell, the trolls and Gollum look finished to me... [In reply to] Can't Post

Seeing as these were some of the first scenes shot for the movies, they've had more time to work on the CGI, and they really do look like finalized effects shots. Obviously, the final grade for the whole movie hasn't been done yet, so they could still have a slightly different look.

The trolls don't look finished at all to me [In reply to] Can't Post

If you remember the Comic Con trolls, they had lots of facial hair. I can barely see any facial hair on the trolls in the trailer.

This leads me to believe that there is still some rendering to do. Not surprising, as hair is notoriously difficult to draw.

I suspect they were just models though [In reply to] Can't Post

Made to *look* like the Trolls, but not identical.
