Not bad .. better than a lot of cgi work in mid-budget sci-fi tv shows.

Since when have UFOs been kind enough to be so clear and pose so nicely? :)

If the smoothness of the flight didn't seem a little wrong- the obviously cobbled soundtrack would give it away.
Looks pretty cool though.

Getting easier and easier for people to make semi realistic looking fakes. Not like the old "pie on a fishing line" days.

I saw on another forum about a month back someone posted pictures of a ufo doing the rounds. Obviously a CG model, nicely composited into a photo of the sky, and everyone was yelling "OH MY GOD LOOK AT THAT UFO!" .. and this was supposed to be a forum of "learned individuals".
It was a viral marketing campaign for the new Halo game, or something.
Here's a link to some of them.

The gullibility of the masses, eh.

Interresting! Are those fake? Some of them looks really hard to fake, if you ask me. :)

Hehe...well.. I had to ask... been following those UFO-documentaries on Discovery Channel and History Channel. It is a very interresting topic with endless theories, everything from space-aliens to advanced secret military projects. :) I wonder if we ever will get a defnitive answer to what those unexplained phenomenas are. :)

Ouch... I just snapped back to reality again... :D

Some guy claiming to be one of the animators has come out on another board, and said that it took them some years to do this on their off time, and finally ended up using a combination of live camerawork, Vue 6 and Lightwave. Take with a grain of salt I guess.

They were talking about this on G4 saying that the palm trees were straight out of the Vue6 promo art.

if its real then they have Palm Trees that are pretty much identical where they are. Look at approx 22 seconds on the better flyover video. The 2 palms are the same. Just slightly different viewing angles.

Haha.. I didn't exactly word that properly did I?

For some reason Zone Alarm is blocking box.net as spyware.
Let me poke around a little and see if I can fix it here, but I may take you up on that.

Thanks Mr Rid.

I got it.

Thank you for the offer tho.

Why is it that every piece of UFO footage is shot by a guy having a seizure?
His footage of his cat chasing a laser, or his bad home made porn is perfectly steady.
The suddenly he can't hold the camera still.


Jim

(it's a rhetorical question)

Lol - especially when so many modern cams have image stablisation built it, I tell ya, if I'm ever lucky enough to see a flying hot-dog and happen to have my cam in my hand then I'm going to make sure I hold that cam as still as possible and *not* use the zoom excessively ;)

If you saw something that was out of this world , wouldn't you get the shakes?. I know I would.

You should know by now that if Rid posts a vid, it's 98% CG and 2% smoke machine in backyard ... ;)

(And 100% his own work of course)

Great to hear the original is a LW/Vue product. Nicely done.
