That comes down to experience and what you use. I can very easily dial in a convincing sound and reverb quite quickly. Much more quickly than. it would take me to go out and sample it in a different space. When you watch TV and film, nothing sounds synthetic there... unless its intentional. That's because they're very good at what they do too.

On the whole, the industry will always choose the most quick and cost effective way of doing something. No-one wants to spend more for less. So if the industry on the whole is doing it in the studios and not running around to locations and doing it everything there it will be because it isn't quick and it isn't cost effective, unlike doing it in the studios.

Its very easy to. look at one scene and see how easy it might be, but if you look at the wealth of sound possibilities and scenes within a production, how much the requirements vary from moment to moment, how the spaces and parameters vary, it would tell a different story. It's actually quite astronomical.
