HOAX! - UFO Sighting - Himalayas - 03/25/2012
« on: March 26, 2012, 09:13:52 PM »


The uploader of this video has many fakes. Looks like he is getting better at it.
What do you guys think?
Look it's a bird!

I think the video looks really fake.  It also looks like they followed a Video Copilot tutorial for After Effects a little too closely. In fact, I think he used the same window grime texture, and the same 3D interior, and also the same interior reflection effect.

In other words... watch this video:

http://www.videocopilot.net/tutorial/mid_air_emergency/

Watch it at the 13:00 minute mark and after, and you will see how they made the window, the window grime, the window reflection, the fake wing, etc..   I actually recommend watching the entire tutorial because it's just awesome.

But trying to pass a fake video as real, that is not cool... Thanks for bringing this one to my attention.

That wing is almost an exact replica of the wing in the tutorial.

I think the video looks really fake.

I don't know anything about video effects myself, but I just have to pipe up that it looks so MASSIVELY fake, I don't think anyone could claim that the maker is getting "better"...

The UFO in the video has entirely mismatched focus to the environment, and it makes it stick out like a sore thumb of video artifice.

I started to make a video to show this video is a hoax, but I got side tracked with other projects and haven't finished it yet.   However, as stated in my earlier post, this video is a replica of an Adobe After Effects tutorial from Video Copilot, so I am moving this topic to the HOAX forum.
