Oh I didn't expect it to be the same effect, it's used entirely in a different way. There are many many parameters you can tweak to get what effect
you desire. Hence the comparison, it's fake smoke, or it could be fake smog, or a fake cloud, or fake mist. The point was that it is doable in less
than a few clicks of a mouse if you have a basic understanding of the technology... which is as easy as finding a youtube tutorial.
In the case of the vid in the OP, it's been done, in my opinion, with that specific effect in mind. And being so quick, to alter it frame by frame in
AE, is too easy. But I'm not claiming 100% anything here, just to be sure. In my opinion, it's a fake.
The other video was to demonstrate that an effect similar to a fleeting ufo can also be done within the same range as that of the cloud drag effect.
I've seen far more intricate videos, but felt that this one defined what it was I needed to point out, fast moving fleeting objects do not require
even as much as a fluid background to appear realistic. As with the second video I posted, the guy used a single photo as the backdrop and managed the
camera movement, focus and shake all within after effects.

My issue with UFO footage always falls on it's ability to be recognised large scale. If it's too good to be believed, but there are multiple
separate accounts, with the same details, the same time, direction, speed, but definitely not a collaboration, then I will accept it. It's sad that
all of these cases have gone without footage to validate it. Because it's these cases that keep me looking.
When it's one guy on youtube with an easily done render of something like that, no other accounts of the same event, no media talking about the
lunatics in the hills seeing UFO's with cheesy xfiles music to then say hundreds of people witnessed it, but oh they are silly idiots because UFO's
don't exist... then it tells me more about it than I'm willing to accept as plausible.
