Watch The Hobbit Before & After VFX Shots

Nearly every frame of The Hobbit contains special effects shots, indeed some of the scenes in the movie are 100% visual effects…but to the untrained eye it’s difficult to see the transition between real elements and visual effects.

Weta Digital has uploaded a video that shows some of the magic used in various scenes from The Hobbit, including how Rivendell was digitally created and dropped in to its serene valley.

Enjoy!
