“A separate video posted by the same user, alymc01, is believed to have been shot from inside the offices of a visual effects company called The Mill. The firm creates special effects for the film industry.”

So how do you do that with a computer? What’s the program they are using?

Well that’s pretty good visual effects.

Except for the purple disk that gets between the decorative trim and soffit of the adjacent building and the camera. That "UFO" would have to be no more than about 10 feet from the camera to be real. And about four inches in diameter. And translucent.

I’m not sure they’re using software to make the disks. Those could be some sort of lens flare effect. The fuzzy-looking things that are floating by could be done by software; I could write code to insert them using my own computer. I’m sure there are numerous video editing and effects packages that can be used to do this as well.

If they had been using software to make the disks, I don’t think they would have let the purple one in the foreground slip in there.

Did not see the “purple trim” on the adjacent building. Tell me at how many seconds in the video can you see this purple trim. I don’t see it.

I’m not following your 10 ft from the camera and 4 inches in diameter point either? Sorry.. It looks like it’s way beyond 10 feet.

Well, you have been educated. It is Bigfoot. The fact that they pilot Flying Saucers explains why no Bigfoot body has ever been found. When one dies others pick up the body and take it to their home planet- Bolok!

That’s one of the most annoying videos I’ve ever watched. And yea, it’s fake; can’t believe anything coming out of England, much less London these days; they’re all bored out their skulls looking to pull pranks to stay awake long enough to collect this month’s dole. Besides that, you’ve got to know that info coming from a country where a “Yield” sign says “Give Way” is a bit “dodgy”, if you will.

So when a camera shakes then that means its fake? If it would have stayed firm (like a movie), then you would have believed it.

Did not see the “purple trim” on the adjacent building. Tell me at how many seconds in the video can you see this purple trim. I don’t see it.

Well, if you read my post #10 carefully, you will see that I made no reference to "purple trim" on a building, or anywhere. I don't know who was talking about "purple trim," but it wasn't me.

What I did refer to was a "purple disk that gets between the decorative trim and soffit of the adjacent building and the camera."

You can find this for yourself, if you look at the video between 1:15 and 1:23. At 1:15, the video lingers on what at first appears to be a white disk, but soon is revealed to be a lens flare caused by the direct rays of the sun which are fairly close to the optical axis of the camera's lens. What reveals it to be a lens flare is the achromatic fringing on its opposite sides; a little more reddish on its left edge, and a little more bluish on its right edge.

Then, just for a moment, at 1:22, you can see a reddish-purple disk, so foreshortened that it appears to be a line, just under the letter "A" on the sign at the left side of the frame. That's the "purple disk" I referred to in my post #10.

There is no flaw in Zeppo's logic whatsoever.

On the other hand, to call your reasoning "wrong" would be to give it more merit than it deserves.

Okay let’s follow the logic

All “A” + “B” = “C”

If homemade video with camera(A) plus shaking video(B) means (=) fake (C).

Complete nonsense because the premiss is flawed. Zeppo is assuming all A plus all B equals C.

It's actually pretty straightforward.

You have made at least two errors of logic.

The first one was when you mistakenly concluded that my original statement was equivalent to asserting that, "So when a camera shakes then that means its fake?"

Not correct.

Then you compounded the problem by mistakenly concluding, "If it would have stayed firm (like a movie), then you would have believed it", which is a fallacy that roughly follows in the pattern of denying the antecedent

BTW, no panties, no wad...

You’re in way over your head here.

The nonsense on this thread is 100% generated by you. Starting with your BS about the “purple trim.”

Good grief. If you think you’re going to convince me, or anyone, that you have anything to say or any point to make by dressing it up as a fake mathematical equation, or logical syllogism, or whatever in the name of Sam Hill that is, why, you just go ahead and knock yourself out.

Have you ever heard of the movie Avatar?

Does the expression Computer-Generated Image (CGI) ring a bell?

Okay here is your post,

“I especially like the phony Blair Witch Project camera shake.”

then you said,

“The first one was when you mistakenly concluded that my original statement was equivalent to asserting that, when a camera shakes then that means its fake”.

Okay well I’m still waiting other than “not correct” with no response other than that.

Please elaborate what you mean by “phony Blair Witch Project camera shake”?

Guess you have never heard of sarcasm???

The purpose of an antecedent(like sarcasm ) is to expose how flawed your premiss and logic is in your original point.

Now instead of just having fun with it.. You have your panties all in a wad. Just wondering is there anything you can do that does not get you upset? If so, then I suggest to do more of it. Lighten up good grief!

The important thing here is that no video is acceptable as evidence of anything unless analyzed by a trustworthy expert. Even then, the expert is quite unlikely be able to identify what is shown on the video beyond the fact that the image has not been created by fakery.

Second, lights flitting about the sky are not evidence of intelligent control of an object. They are certainly not evidence of passenger-carrying “ships”. They are simply unexplained lights flitting about the sky. Maybe they are living creatures. Maybe they are tricks (the most likely explanation by a factor of billions or trillions on the probability scale).

Gee. All of a sudden you've gone as quiet as a churchmouse. After criticizing people's use of logic, and telling them "they need help" and "obviously have anger management issues."

And then, you get asked one little yes/no question, and all of a sudden: silence.

Probably your best response. Logical. LOL.

It’s called you have issues and it’s why I am not responding. It is a fun post thread and nothing more. Save your energy for something serious.

At any just figured I would say this since you can’t get an OBVIOUS hint. So when I do not respond to future posts from you... You will now understand.
