I know that isn't the impression they intended. But the recent Hobbit production blog seem to suggest they create the CGI as they go.

The weird part is, the Weta Workshop does great work in actually building physical props, and the New Zealand scenery is so beautiful, that I have the impression the CGI department couldn't keep up.

The production blog seem to suggest their CGI department is actually very small in comparison to the rest of the studio. That it is not like how Avatar or Transformers where the CGI was more important than anything else.
