One thing that is interesting when I do a SMOOTH luminance level
(i.e. brightening) of the video so that I don't accentuate the
JPEG-image like macro-block compression artifacts that are
present in the video.....is that the creature CRAWLS OVER
THE ROOF'S EDGE !!!!!
It's NOT noticeable in the original video or any subsequent video
permutations, but you can clearly see arms/legs reaching OVER
the roof-ledges and grabbing onto the walls of the building
and ONLY THEN coming into view!!!!!!!
Most hoaxsters are pretty blase about putting too much effort
into a fake video and would NOT USUALLY BOTHER with doing
that much added realism into the dark/unseen areas of the video.
In my opinion the motion of the arms is MOSTLY non-linear
(i.e. accelerated motion of arm movement) that does NOT show
the characteristic X-number of pixels between each arm/leg
movement that is part of the smooth and linear in-between
frame renders when using lower-level animation software
such as Blender.
i also SEE a consistent MACROBLOCKING and consistent pixel
brightness and pixel-speckling that is part of the VIDEO NOISE
that is present in the walls and on the LEGS/ARMS of the creature.
This is NOT TO SAY the video is of a REAL creature but I DO SAY that
the animation itself (if it is one!) is MASTERFULLY MADE...with realistic
non-linear motion, full emulation of pixel and video noise and basically
PERFECT LIGHTING EMULATION where the creature's lighted portions
MATCHES the lighting of the building.
So it's either REAL...or done with a real High end piece of software such as
Autodesk Inferno/Flame Premium and at almost $100,000.00+ (with hardware), they're NOT CHEAP!!!!!
See Link to Flame/Inferno
The animation itself was probably done on Maya/SoftImage
I'm NOT DISMISSING that this could have been done using the
open-source Blender 3D program, but the operator would have
to be REAL SKILLED with a great sense of direction, timing and
composition! This means they're PRO and EXPENSIVE to hire
which means this MIGHT be a viral video attempt at
a movie promotion!
See Blender link:
It's darn good no matter what!
