So many people are so quick to label something fake. Like the Jerusalem UFO video. Everyone is an expert at debunking. I like to ask the question,
what would it take for you guys to consider something is real? I guess admission from authorities with an official video? Eye witness account is no
longer good enough, video either by camera or cell phone is not good enough. Even seeing something on government controlled cameras, like traffic
cams, is not good enough.
This wasn't a traffic camera or government controlled camera.
And so, I would MUCH rather be cautious than gullible. I want to believe in "aliens" and all that stuff. That is one of the main reasons I joined
ATS. I believe the truth will emerge here first. Eventually.
I just don't think this is it.
If you want some credentials on why I believe it is fake, ok. I work in a big brother "ish" job. I work with camera's all day long. I work with
digital video, analog video, reeled video, and I work with exporting and editing software. For a long time I've done this. More than 10 years. 8
years in an industry is enough to get "expert" status for the purposes for commercial consulting.
Here are some reasons for my OPINION. First of all, that "reel" sound is a sound font you can find bundled in with adobe after effects and other
editing programs. It is pretty clear and crisp in the video that is over 50 years old. If the video was crappy and withered, the sound of the reel
should also be.
The shutter speed and frame rate is another issue. The video is smoother than some of your mentioned "traffic cams".
The "aging" and "scratched" effects are repetitive. Aging and scratching are also options in adobe after effects, and other multiple MULTIPLE movie
editing software that is included on standard pc's and mac's.
Youtube is an excellent venue for testing a persons "skillz" with these types of software. It is becoming less and less a credible and reliable
source of "factual" information.
I have to remain cautious and skeptical. Believing anything is panic inducing. I've worked in law enforcement as well. I have a hard time believing
Like I said, I would like to believe. I have had a few "questionable" sightings myself. The main reasons I joined this site. But the motto here is
"Deny Ignorance". Not "Close your eyes and believe everything on youtube".
I'm simply keeping my eyes open. People love to fool people.
