I've got mixed ideas right now.
I thought I had 2 things that would have been dificult to fake, but not I've discounted one. I'm still left with the other and the one doesn't take
away from the video's credibility.
When the object comes into view between 13 and 14 seconds it's clearly seen but small. Then it moves a little and seems to disapear. When it reapears
it's a little larger and lower on the windshield.
I had thought it was a line of glare, but I figured out that it's probably something that was added to the video after the fact. It's in the same
spot throughout the video. It's probably a tag added to the video from some site. It doesn't add or take away from the credibility of the video.
I'm pretty sure the car does indeed roll. I've seen the drivers arm move sharply to the right just after the object either hit or came very close to
hitting the windshield. It's tough to see, but it is there.
Sure wish I could get a screenshot of what I'm seeing, but for some reason I can't get Snagit to grab the video image. All I get in the output is a
black frame. If anyone can help I'll post an image of what I'm talking about.
I've got a better way of viewing the file. I'm watching it in Windows Media Player and using the play speed settings to move frame by frame through
First download the .flv video file from YouTube.
I used YouTube Downloader.
Get the Vista Codec Pack and install it.
Then open the file in Windows Media Player. You can Right Click the file and choose Open With. I'd go ahead and click the box to always open the .flv
files in WMP.
In WMP11 there should be a drop down menu right under the Now Playing button at the top of the screen. Click the little down arrow and you should see
a short menu. Look for Enhancments and then Play Speed Settings
It should look like this.
See those little buttons at the bottom. They move the video forward and sometimes backwards one frame at a time through the video. This video won't
move backwards but it works very well for forward.
It's a lot easier to see everything that happens this way. Things move pretty fast.
