If they get a decent effects house to animate and render that stuff it will
look great. If they get a bunch of guys who work out of their garage on
Alphas running just Lightwave then we will be truly horrified by how badly
the live action attempts to blend with the cg. Well-painted texture maps
and accurate models will not look like animated Bandai model kits. And the
real key is the compositing. The cg elements will look cg no matter how
well they're rendered if they're not massaged into the scene correctly.
