What were the biggest challenge and the biggest innovation for visual effects on The Chronicles of Narnia?2. How many types of creatures and species were created digitally?3. How did you decide when to use CG versus miniatures to create a visual effect?4. Can you tell us about motion capture that was used extensively on The Chronicles of Narnia?5. How would you compare and contrast the visual effects on The Chronicles of Narnia and some of the other movies (that you worked on) such as The Lord of the Rings?
