Many of us have been questioning videos since about 1970! I have never understood the mindset of folks- many here on ATS!- that believe something is
true because it is on a video. Videos are nothing more than many photos strung together. Do we trust a photo? Not likely. Then why would we trust a
Well I was born in at the tail end of the 70s so my concerns were probably not photo manipulation
and you can't compare the 70s to now with CGI.
It is just not the same. What is available now compared to then for the average person is far different.
There was a time when a photo being fake wasn't the first response to explaining it but now it's like people enjoy making fakes and seeing people
squirm over it. The same goes for videos esp with certain subjects like UFOs. It's really hard to have a normal discussion when people are out there
punking the world with their creations.
I am not one to scream FAKE at everything, the fake ones just get more attention because they "got" people. Do I question certain pics or videos?
Yes I do but not all. Did I question this video? No. I wouldn't have thought it would be fake, I know nothing of what CGI looks like and to a non
expert it looked good to me but I was duped like many others...well millions. The people who made it did for a class. I dont think their intentions
were to dupe anyone and if so shame on them!
I dont doubt photo manipulation has been around for decades but it is not as easily available or as easy to do like it is now compared to the 70s.
