For a further understanding of our analysis...





I don't understand how running an emboss filter inside VLC is useful for any type of analysis and you've already been shown to be using the PTM method incorrectly.

a reply to: A51Watcher

All of your examples clearly have further processing done to them rather than just a strict upscale.

This is your image with nothing but a nearest neighbor upscale. In other words, all of the original pixels just made into larger areas with unchanged values:



If you are using anything other than nearest neighbor interpolation for upscaling, then you are adding data that does not exist in the original.

My name is not Blake, btw.

My bad. That is the name of the person posting the query on the mega debunker site.

I assumed it was you.

I will get back to you on your other concerns in a bit.

But, of course, that is part of the plan: Discuss the ships and not the agenda of the visiting ETs. Heaven forbid there should appear on ATS any serious discussion


Well then let's DO IT! Let's have a serious discussion on what the EBE's are doing here. You start it and I will join you.

You can call it:

THEY'RE HERE ~ so what are they doing?

There are hundreds of existing threads over 15 long years - here's one I spotted recently in the archives:

www.abovetopsecret.com... ... For example, aliens are coming here to steal our gold and using us as slaves to extract it.

Don't laugh - he was being serious.

Link is dead. Personally, I trust Lazar. Acing 2 polygraph tests is not an easy thing to do. He's getting old and people think he's lying because of how he acted on Joe Rogan. I don't think there was a problem but people always mention Joe Rogan and say he's a liar.

Good to know that they gave access to the original film to skilled researchers and analysts. Absolutely incredible work. It looks like the Philadelphia Experiment perfected...



I can see, what appears to me, in the main larger body part is two toroid rings laying flat, stacked on top of each other. There appears to be another current surrounding the whole craft.

Can you explain the differences in color, particularly why something is red, blue, yellow, or green? Is it an enhancement your team did or is it an effect from the video?

Also on a side note, if I were a UFO hunter, would you prefer I use old analog film or a good digital camera?


And now to answer some good questions by SouthernForkway26

Those colors are an enhancement done by the processor to differentiate the different segments of the stacked image. PTM allows you to put a digital flashlight into a frame and shine it in different directions and take a photo of the result. We first displayed these 48 separate photos one by one in slow motion, then increasing fast speed until they were finally into a single stacked frame. BAS/PTM works in B&W. So color differentiation was deemed a good idea to help separate the details.

From the processor -

"As you have noticed there is an enormous difference in quality between the old news cast video from the internet and our high definition internet video. The difference is not only determined by a huge difference in resolution, namely 320 x 240 compared with 1920 x 1080 pixels but also by bit depth. A high(er) bit depth allows for a smoother transition between colours.

We humans can see some 10 million colours or 8-10 bits per colour channel. Our internet video has been scanned with a professional 24 bits film scanner, which equals to 16777216 colour variations. So what is the reason that we scan a frame in 24 bits when we cannot see the entire colour range? It is because our software uses the additional bits to enhance the details in an image our eyes are unable to see.

When you want to go deeper into this I advise you to Google.

So to your question: Should I use analog or digital to film UFO with?

Fact is that when it comes to light sensitivity and resolution most of today's megapixel cameras are equal in image quality or even better than most analog medium size analog cameras but the large size very expensive analog cameras can reach a film quality digital cameras will hardly be able to reach.

The main difference between an analog film camera and a digital camera is resolution and how light is captured.

Analog film cameras do not have a digital sensor and therefore light is not captured and converted into pixels as with a digital camera. With an analog film camera light rays go through a lens and fall onto a filmstrip where a chemical reaction produces colours within the filmstrip. The light rays do not fall linear onto a filmstrip but under an angle and this is called angular resolution.

So what is the maximum angular resolution that can be achieved? This depends on the size of the filmstrip (camera size) and of course the quality of film. A high quality film will be more light sensitive and will have a finer grain than standard analog film. A good quality 8 mm analog film camera produces at best a film frame equal to 4-6 million pixels but a professional 16 mm film camera in combination with high quality film produces a frame comparable with a 16 megapixel digital photo. Basically, with a bigger film camera you will produce a higher resolution image but in order to have a clear image you also need to go to a film with a finer grain.

Like the digital noise (Gaussian) we see with digital cameras the analog film camera also has its own noise and limitations. The biggest problem with an analog camera is grain. When you scan a filmstrip, the digitized image will show you numerous little coloured spots around your object. Especially in images with a dark background. These little blobs are the grain of the film. What happens is that when a light ray falls onto a film the chemicals react to the photons and a colour is produced but when light rays do not fall linear onto the chemicals
or the light source is not strong enough threshold) the chemical reaction is only partial. That specific part will not show the real colour but instead mostly have a grey, green or brown colour tone. Upscaled 16 mm filmstrips with a dark background tend to look like a muddy pond. Nevertheless the regions that received enough light will be totally clear.

Finally another problem with analog cameras is frame speed as it is never constant compared to a digital camera."


So... both analog and digital have their pros and cons.


Btw, PTM has been used to recover faded Hieroglyphs from stone tablets as well as boot prints and tire tread marks from the ground.

Correction:

In my previous post I mistakenly corrected what I thought were typos in the response I received from my processor.

Several times he used the term interneg which I was unfamiliar with to read internet.

Here then is the response with no corrections on my part:


As you have noticed there is an enormous difference in quality between the old news cast video from the internet and our high definition interneg video.
