Really? We are going there with this thread? Pages debating whether a bush is an alien, AGAIN? These kind of debates are getting so frequent at ATS
nowadays I'm sure I can't be the only person who feels we're reaching the breaking point into complete retardation, where all logic is thrown out of
the book in favor of whatever childish fantasies people have.
It's such a debate about a "stick creature" that truly confirms the kind of intelligence we have residing in this forum. What twisted fantasies do you
harbor if you're really going to sit there convinced you're seeing a "stick figure alien" or something walking around in that video?
If you can't understand things moving in perspective to the camera, and slightly bizarre effects created by mediocre stabilization software, you
shouldn't be analyzing video clips.
Go out and shoot some video. Come home and stabilize it. You'll see exactly the same effect. Stabilization software works to, yes, stop camera shake,
and how do you think it does that? It adds and detracts pixels as necessary to create "new" space, to fill gaps and double frames in some places. It
warps things, and it can do VERY odd things with foreground objects, keeping them steady whilst the background moves around, and vice versa,
completely steady backgrounds and very odd foreground object conditions.
This is the second time in a week a thread in this forum has snowballed because of someone trying to convince us a stick or a bush is up and walking
around. I've seen plenty of UFO's, but this stuff, it's reaching an all new, retarded low. Threads like this make me ashamed to get involved in
UFOlogy around here.
Go and play with a video camera and some stabilization software and then come back and see if you're still seriously convinced it's a creature. I'm
not questioning people's beliefs, they are your own. But as a video editor, what's going on in this video with the so called "stick man" is really not
something hard to see or understand, even if it is to some people.
If only we could see the un-stabilized version, that stick etc would be clearer to "understand".
