It does matter because people on ATS need to know which video's are "Fake" and which are "Genuine" or at least unexplained!
I can tell you however that this is fake from experience of watching a similar style of video!
I think most people could point out that it is a fake instantly when the creature makes its appearance over the road!
Anyone who claims that they can tell with certainty that this video was CGI'ed (unfortunately - you) has just permanently ruined their reputation of
Anybody with even the slightest common sense will realize immediately that the picture quality and frame rate of this video is far too poor to detect
any CGI "fingerprints".
From what I can see:
- Lighting is flawless - no inconsistencies whatsoever, even when the animal moves in front of the headlight, (you can see the headlight casting a
second elongated shadow, etc.)
- The inconsistent frame rate of the cars/everything else matches the inconsistent frame rate of the animal.
So as far as can be determined from this video, there's nothing that indicates it to be CGI. This doesn't mean that it's not, but if it is, it's
done very well and would probably be difficult to detect even if a high-res version of the video was available.
Now on the less technical side, I'd say there's no reason why this would be CGI. It's just an animal crossing a highway! What's the big problem
with it being real that you would embarrass yourself trying to "prove" it's fake?
People accusing things like this to be CGI is really a disgrace and embarrassment to any truly "unbiased" skeptic.
