Helpful, yes.

But, I will try the less costly 3D Daz 3D set first.

Just thinkin’... low-budget practical can look a helluva lot better than low-budget CGI on low-budget chromakey.

yep.

But he shot the greenscreen scenes already years ago.
So I think the best comprimise might be chromokey into a practicle set.

But that Daz software looks cool, although I expect a huge learning curve to get realistic results.
(I took Maya classes in artschool. In 1 year and over 100 hours of class we just scratched the surface of modelling.)

Agreed. Even million dollar CGI can't get it right. Winter breath annoys the hell out of me. Explosions and flames always look fake or just not right as far as focus, movement, etc. Ships, craft, etc. can look ridiculous. This is with millions. Would think a combo of tricking the eye with cuts and practical shooting/locations would be much more slick/pro when done right, i.e. art direction/cinematography/editing.

There's also the third option of the set or miniature set created by a 3D printer from a 3D model. It can be painted to look more realistic.

I feel that way with robots in sci-fi movies as well. These days, even big budget films use cg robots, but they lack the realism of the old school sci-fi robots with people inside mechanical suits.
