They have a distinct... unreality about them that I can't quite explain... are they CGI'd or something, do you think?Anyone looked at the videos I mention in post #4 ?
All seem highly unlikely to me.
Good point. Not every frame is being displayed. It's a heavily compressed video uploaded to Youtube, which then applies further compression.I'm sure the mysterious crashes in INT21's post are special effects, Blender or otherwise. As for the original footage at the top of this thread, it may be more than just "blurry" video. Digital video is usually compressed in a way that doesn't create each frame from whole cloth the way analog video does, but rather just tells the system what's changed in each successive frame. (This is an oversimplification - and I'm no expert - but is sufficient to make my point.) It looks to me like the oncoming car was at first just too small a detail for the level of compression being used.
the upload name for that video is this company
They are pretty good fakes, I think.the upload name for that video is this company
Autour de Minuit is a film production company based in Paris created in 2001 by Nicolas Schmerkin. The company aims at supporting aesthetically innovative projects, and develops original graphic worlds with a solid content. Hybridization -at the heart of the artistic approach of most of the works born in the company- gives the opportunity to explore new ideas and sensations in plastic art and intent to provide with visuals never to be seen before.
so whether its their film, or just some practise video, or whatever i don't know, but it seems pretty likely its not real.
fascinating to watch though.
