My friend in Brazil posted this on facebook saying:

This video was shot by a brazilian family last sunday, guys. It's pretty creepy. I haven't seen a video shot during the day before (by the way, the kids are saying in oirtuguese: It's a space ship!! Wow! ) and the girl's voice is saying how scared she is.


I watched the video, and my initial thoughts are legit... and I'm in the 3D field, so, if I'm wrong, well, good job whoever did it...
Anyway, the reactions are great, and the footage good.
What makes me think this is legit, is that if you continuously pause, most of the frames contain the UFO and a ghost of the UFO (like an onion skin), which would be attributed to the shaking of the camera.
If this was an amateur CGI UFO video, each frame would most likely be very precise and clear, containing one asset (UFO) per frame.
Also, if you watch the blurs, they are synonymous with the blurs on the clouds.

But, alas, I bring it to you to input your own thoughts and criticisms.
If nothing else, it's a fun thought...

I am amazed about how good that google translation is. As for the UFO itself, dont know. Too much shaking.

Images recorded by four teenagers on Sunday (26) in Three Points (MG) raise doubts about the supposed appearance of a flying saucer in southern Minas. The video was uploaded by Internet users Lais Aparecida da Silva Correia to the " Vc in G1 . " Images were recorded around 15h in the backyard of a house in the neighborhood Philadelphia, where the children played in the yard with a camera.

In the video, the UFO (Unidentified Flying Object) appears between the clouds. When kids drive the zoom of the equipment, the object is in focus for a few seconds in the center of the screen. Shortly after, the object disappears quickly. During recording, you can hear the expression of astonishment adolescents. "You can see just right.'s A ship, I'm sure." Say the children.

For a jumpy camera, the object was in extreme clarity compared to the background.

CGI was my first instinctual assumption. I could be wrong but look at it trying to disprove CGI.
Kind of difficult for me.

Well, to be honest, there is not really much background. Except the sky. So any object in the foreground will be sharper than a blue sky with white clouds.

I do not discount it being CGI, I just don't want to jump to any conclusions. The ghost trail it seems to make might either be down to a crappy camera, or a crappy after effects effect.

vvv

A couple screenshots I captured at 1000% in IE with Windows built in snipping tool:




Could be some kind of craft. Could be a mylar balloon as well. Interesting nevertheless.

Its a short video of an object that appears to do little other than float in the sky , it kinda reminds me of a ....


Short , shaky , poor quality ..... yep its a UFO video

You dont have to sign up for anything to view the video.
But thanks for letting us know.

if you continuously pause the video, as I did, the object blurs at about the same ratio as the BG when blurs do occur. Other than that, yes, its pretty clear, which is why I posted it here

Ah, cynicism. The mind of a true Scientist!
Oh, wait, thats objectivism...

Its true that the object doesn't do much other than rise, like a balloon, but The lights at the bottom and reflection at the top do resemble a metallic like object.
Also, the fact that it does JUST rise gives up credible reason to rule out plane.
So yes, it could be a balloon, but if its not, then what is it?
Do all UFO videos have to have objects making loops?

Mylar balloons are metallic , I'd say the lights are reflected light ,

No but it would help , it would also help if they didn't look and act like balloons or lanterns .

Fair enough.
I'm not discounting balloon... but I'm ruling out CGI, unless someone else has some good evidence to the contrary.
So, if its not CGI, maybe its a balloon... but, maybe its not...

(Jump to the end for TLDR summary) I don't see anything here that couldn't be done in a 2.5D environment with a flat sky picture and a node/layer for the UFO? Not much to do with being in the 3D field I' say.

Besides, ATS has plenty of smart folks ... it will stand or fall without credentials attached.


What makes me think this is legit, is that if you continuously pause, most of the frames contain the UFO and a ghost of the UFO (like an onion skin), which would be attributed to the shaking of the camera.


Or, it could be attributed to someone having the wrong frame rate in their composition, or attempting to time stretch an element because they screwed up. It could be something like rolling shutter effect from a mobile phone but it really doesn't look that way to me.


If this was an amateur CGI UFO video, each frame would most likely be very precise and clear, containing one asset (UFO) per frame.


I wouldn't assume just because someone can make a camera shake that it would be 'pro' CGI job. Camera shake/blur/ghosting = uber totals amateur. You work in 3D so I'd assume you know that motion blur in the most basic of instances is a mouse click away. (Also just about every amateur UFO hoax is shakey cam)

Many amateurs don't know, don't care, or don't think about their frame rates and the damage done editing temporal resolution (timing). Could easily be an incorrect frame rate (either footage or setting) mixed with frame blending to compensate done by accident. Could also be someone trying to stretch a mistimed part of composition out and resulting in frame blending. Basicish version: Computers try to guess what the user is doing sometimes and that results in 'frame blending' which creates 'ghosting' in badly set up video art.

You can actually create ghosting with bad work flows in 3D programs, also.


Also, if you watch the blurs, they are synonymous with the blurs on the clouds.


I don't see the clouds having the same behaviour as the object. In fact really not sure what's going on with the focus. Seems somewhat random, and if it's on automatic I'd expect auto exposure as well. Blurs look off a bit to me at first glance also (seem gaussian)

References around the web of people being scared and the video being uploaded by a lawyer but filmed by children. 'Lawyer Lais Aparecida da Silva Correia', yet I can't find an original version with this name attached. All UFO channels etc ...

If you're serious about looking into it and think it has legs/potential ...

It would be good if we could get the original source footage or close to it. (I've found it uploaded as 4:3 and 16:9ish for starters)
It would be good if there was background information such as camera model and location etc ... Camera settings/model answers a lot of questions.

Personally, so far first glance is enough for me just now. Shakey camera, no objects of reference, odd back story, perfect set up for silliness so far ...

TLDR Summary:
- Ghosting is usually more evidence of bad technical comp artist skills than evidence of reality
- Most CGI UFO hoaxes love camera shake, blur and anything else they can throw in to hide mistakes
- Defocus operation looks gaussian?
- Focus is all over the place/almost random yet exposure is barely touched at all for the entire video
- Odd back story
- Set entirely in the sky. Not a single other object of reference or track down to person or object. Suspect.

Sorry last post of my night so it's randomish. Hope it helps.

At first I was like "hmm, well... maybe. Possibly." and then when the obligatory UFO video music started I was more like "ah. But of course. Complete and utter fake".

if you pause the video at the 21-22 second mark it looks odd, it "appears" out of nowhere, never seen that before in a vid, look interesting to say the least.

Not saying it's an "alien" craft or a craft at all but the 20 to 23 second mark is where I would start looking for CGI

I have no software to analyze this video but that is where I would start if I could

Looks like a solid disk ship Rex Heflin type.
Since we have a few reports of this type there might not be that many other disk types.
Lighting up the air underneath just shows the wave action needed to lift the ship.

Oh, mahn, it's the holiest of Majic!
And don't chew question why a god needs a flyin' saucepan!
What is this u-toob, anyway?

Thanks for the Portuguese interpretation.
