hi - just two examples of HQ video fakes to mull over :
baseball - a faked stunt alledging hitting a baseball to bounce off off multiple trampoloines - and back to the hitter - repeat
a waterslide - that if genuine would re-define ` epic `
both ` viral ` promotions
i could post a huge list - but you should get the picture
people need to understand the actuall capabilities of CGI and vid editing availiable in 2011 - and not keep using the movie ` tron `  as thier
refference point .
this is posted here - because , of all ATS fora - aliens / UFO has the higest noise / signal ratio of any ATS fora [ with regard to vid / photo
i anticipate the flurry of indignant responses claiming ` they are not the same `
but just troll Y-tube for other non UFO fakes / hoaxes - and compare the quality
these [ my examples ] deal with issues of known physics - when making claims that require a paradigm shift - the bar must be lifted higer - not
nessecarily in vid quality [ a real UFO encounter - happens in real itme - with little / zero control of ability to alter ligting / composition etc ]
- but at least in back story and provenance
bottom line - the M.M.O - [ mens / motive / oporunity ] to produce HQ fake vid of events [ of any nature ] exists - and must be dealt with
the claim ` its too hard / costly / time-consuming ` to fake vid / photos does not fly [ pun ]
and UFOogy needs to deal with it

This has caused a very big problem for all pictures of every thing. Pictures mean nothing any more. They are worthless. I wonder how long until the
police start using fake pictures to put people in jail.
Any real photos are fake by default. A real live alien from another planet could take pictures of it's space ship and of its self and post them on
line and they would be called fake. And now days a 10 year old with a Walmart desk top can make Hollywood grade CGI pictures and videos. It is sad if
you think about it. No one can now prove anything with photos or videos. I wonder where it will end. If you see a real alien or space ship or some
other out of this world event even if you have a dozen cameras why even waste your time taking any pictures. In the past few years I have seen some
really crazy things that I did not take pictures of because I thought 'what was the point?'
And that has worked so good has it not? A thousand people could all take pictures of the same thing and you would still hear the words FAKE and CGI.
Do not think so? Well how many photos were taken of 9/11? And how many of them have been called fake? It is just too easy to make good fakes now.
Photoshop/C.G.I.? Naw! Never! Impossible!
What happened to the top of (non existent) Breivik's head?
A Lobotomy for the top of me!
It's bloody everywhere and we suckers are always stupidly sucked in.
Nearly ALL 9/11 footage available was C.G.I. but back then the relevant
technology was less developed so the tell-tale signs and flaws are very obvious.
(Having said that, there are some pretty obvious indicators in footage and
photographs released from the event in Oslo and Utoya).
This is why you document where you were, what time, how long it took you to post the picture,etc. Also,you want to get rid of as much pixelation as
possible? Don't use a digital camera. Mail a copy of the pics to yourself ASAP, and do not open them unless you're in court. Get creatively
The shadow from the car's window frame and changes in perspective can totally explain the things you have pointed out in your image.
In terms of the OP, and the question of CGI fakery. It's a good question, and it needs to be discussed, but personally I think we've reached a point
where there is actually no point even considering whether something might be CGI. I'm not advocating blanket acceptance of everything but consider
this: if we're not there yet, we're fast approaching a time when absolutely any video of anything could potentially be faked, and there would not
necessarily be any evidence of this.
Sure, the hardcore debunkers will do their best to 'invent' evidence as to why a video is a CGI hoax, but many of the evidence they use for this can
be explained in other ways.
The other issue is that you can't reverse engineer CGI footage. You can look at the footage and identify elements which may be signs of
digital treatment, but this will never be proof. The only way that a CGI hoax can truly be proven is if the hoaxer reveals the elements he used to
create the hoax. Even if the hoaxer were to admit a hoax, how would this be any different to an eye-witness claiming they say a UFO? Ultimately it
becomes a question of taking someone at their word.
I cannot stress this enough: no matter how many hints and signs you might find on a video that would lead us to believe it has been digitally
manipulated, none of this will ever amount to proof. Only a 'before and after' demonstration will ever prove this.

This is typical of people on here exaggerating NO THEY COULDN'T a hollywood blockbuster would use a render farm which can be hundreds of pc's with
thousands of processors working on a few seconds of CGI that can take them hours to generate!
Yes we can now make good quality video at home but your claim is a bit OTT.

Your as bad as yankee451 so whats your best example of CGI at 9/11 or any other disaster.
This cannot happen in the real world. Full stop.
So it must represent something other than the real world.
And Yankee451 is one of the most clear thinking, intelligent
and insightful members of this forum, as can be clearly witnesses from his
latest ongoing thread 9/11 For Phychos-A Rant, one of the most important
threads written anywhere on ATS, and indeed anywhere else.
You and your like deny example after example of obvious fakery, acting as if its
incorporation into (false flag) events was beyond the realms of technological or
How obtuce and clueless of you.
Edit to add:
It is claimed that these three photographs represent the same individual.
[look at the weird eyes. Look at how ridiculously badly his neck meets his head!]
A dog with a mallet up his arse can see that this is BS.
But you can't...or won't.
C.G.I./Photoshop is screaming again.
Where are your ears man?
I await some undoubtedly unconvincing explanations from you.

"a bit OTT" you say. Well if it is it is not by much. And with more powerful computers coming out every week it seems just how long until my
statement is 100% fact? In 5 or 10 years even the experts will not long be able to tell the difference. I really hate this. I like to be able to look
at a picture and be able to trust what I see. Where will this lead?
