That is obviously entirely CGI, the airplane wing is pretty poor and is clearly not a 747 engine pod,

I'm not an expert at photography, so others will have to go that route. But the lens flare on the window showed that this was taken through a portal. I would think it hard to CGI the UFO behind the lens flare that well, at least easily.

A traveling jet would mean that a balloon or RC model can be ruled out, unless someone has seen a 500MPH version of these.

Real or good CGI, that is the question?

Thanks for your input, any idea what kind of plane that engine pod could belong too? Any insight is appreciated...

Considering the complete lack of movement from the wing and the very unusual engine, I would suggest its a model plane.

I could be wrong, but then how many people clamp their camera to the window THEN press the button?

A common misconception of the limitations of CGI and digital compositing..
almost anyone can do this using software such as Apple's SHAKE www.apple.com... using only minor training (I did a small course in digital compositing and maya at Escape studios in London a few years back) watch any Hollywood blockbuster to see what can be done!

Never underestimate what can be done....because it probably can be

Yea, that engine sure looks strange too me too, maybe a model, maybe military. Anyone have any idea what plane that engine may belong too??

Thanks for the link. I think that settles it for me.

I learned something here. I had thought that the shading of of a flare would be hard to do. As I said, the UFO itself looked CGI, but what threw me was the lens flare.

Good job folks.

(And it helps to have the best Google finder on the planet for an FSME.

Just have a quick google about for peoples showreels, here is a random one i just grabbed for this post - this guy uses shake to do digital compositing.
web.mac.com...

Notice for example in the dinosaure clip how the dino is the otherside of the glass and you can still see the reflections on it (and see the dino perfectly well behind it)

Thanks for your input internos, even though it appears to be cgi it looks very real to these untrained eyes. It amazes me what can be done these days w/ the ol puter, but it's also pretty frustrating having to weed out cgi from the real thing.

That was a cool vid freaky, thanks for posting it, like i said it's amazing what can be done these days. So hard to tell the real deal from cgi, is it even possible anymore?
