-- Jim Dilettoso, president of a state-of-the-art lab and supercomputer network designer with 20 years' experience in his field, confirmed on the Sightings television program and in several phone calls I had with him that he is confident a computer was not used. See my article on The CropCircle Connector for Jim's credentials and details of his findings. www.marque.demon.co.uk...
-- Laurel Click, special effects 'expert', said on the "Strange Universe" television program that she found nothing to suggest fraud. If it's a hoax, she said, it would have taken very sophisticated equipment, much money, and a large team of professionals a long time to produce.
-- Ralph McCarron, who creates special effects for a major California lab, stated on a "Strange Universe" update that after his freeze-frame studies and enhanced image analyses, he's convinced that it's actual footage. He noted that there was consistent camera-shake throughout the sequence, and that clinched it for him.
-- Jim Stevenson is employed by Jim Henson (of Muppets fame) workshops, Hollywood special effects producers. They were impressed by the 'authentic feel' of the footage. Jim, too, said that if it's hoaxed, it took a lot of sophisticated equipment, money, and time to create.
-- Patrick Wilson is a musician, and amateur computer/video operator. He enlarged the frames and carefully examined the Balls of Light (BOLs). He made a fascinating discovery [about the unusual shape of the BOLs under magnification], and shares his findings on his website: www.mistral.co.uk...
In the United Kingdom, the following people also found that the tape is 'clean':
-- Professor of Electronics Philip Gurr & P. Head, of Exeter University's video and television department, went 'on the record' and stated that they would be unable to fake the sequence even with their advanced equipment. They found no evidence to suggest that the tape had been tampered with. In their opinion, only the 'Avid' digital editing suites would be capable of such a product.
Only two things are clear; nobody agrees on anything and nothing is conclusive. Those who are convinced it is real look for conformation of their belief, as do those who feel it is a hoax. CCCS- USA coordinator, ilyes, has produced a report which states that of the three experts known to her who have viewed the video, none can find any evidence of tampering. On the other hand two of the experts we have been in touch with disagree. Until the original video surfaces, there is no definitive answer. Several people have been bothered that the video is on single frames while all standard video is shot onto film with two frames (this is why the video on the TV monitor flickers when you freeze frame, because you see the two frames). Mr. Huckvale identified two manufacturing errors: in the final stages of the crop circle construction sequence the shadow around the wall of the central circle drops in very late (I have to say that this troubled me also); also, he claims that just as the first two UFO spheres move into frame there are two frames where the spheres have not been dragged by the computer operator in the correct sequence, but were left on the bottom right of the screen. The NASA contractor was bothered by the sound track. In analyzing the sound, the wind had definite spikes which may indicate that the camera was being turned on and off. On the positive side, the camera was hand held and the "camera shake" remained consistent throughout.
