      Yea...nope. A mothership materializing out of nowhere with no sound? I'm sorry, but there's no way to violate the laws of thermodynamics. A vast amount of energy MUST be spent to do something like that.

      Lol Ani8or, that's some nice ani8ing, but the reaction sounds were far less convicing. And camera work way too good.. but nice cgi work.

      Needs more texture work. And you should look into making small animated details even if they're barely visible. That's what makes a good cg artist closer to being a great cg artist. just take a look at the ships from id4. And that was HOW many years ago?

      PS: there is a videography forum for this sort of thing.

      Agreed. Maybe if the reactions were more crazier and the video quality was ****ier.

      They must've visited to abduct the GTI and discover the wonder of German Engineering.

      It would work out like all the other movies, something that us natives have grown use to inevitably kills the visitors for us. In this case german engineering makes all their ships throw Codes and go into Limp mode.

      The ones I was lucky to spot, were just round gray discs in the sky (no blinking beacons)....one up front and two following at a distance behind.

      Earlier, there were others that cruised with Orange lights on (solid, not blinking)...then would disappear.

      My guess is they cruise with the lights shut down, when they want to see something or whatever they light up. Were like glowing orange objects that moved up and down.

      They weren't planes, weather balloons, helicopters, Chinese lanterns, etc.



      Interesting night, others saw them as well. Very surreal, big skeptic here before that.

      Its too bad, one friend went home early that night....very much missed out.

      So, not a skeptic on UFOs anymore.

      Next up is to see a ghost, until then still a skeptic.

      Thanks everybody for the feedback.

      This was a CGI test I did with some students. The UFO's are not the only things that are fake. I'm showing it here because I'm curious to know what you think of the GTI.

      I would say that if they can materialize their own ship they can probably dematerialize the atmosphere in the location they want to put their ship and simply send it away in a wide pattern, dissipating the effect of materialization, but not negating it.

      yes, I'm sure it would take a tremendous amount of energy. Something on the order of 1.21 gigawatts.

      Well done, Anim8or.

      You need to put a waiver that no drivers, German Engineers and or the GTi got probed.

      Still nice animation, but needed some sound.

      Limp Mode.

      people who waste their time making these cgi animations intentionally dilute to pool of real footage. the intelligence agencies generally pay designers to do this. you on the the other hand are working for free.

      backlighting on the instrument panel looked a lilttle off to me. Funny you posted that specific question because noticing that lighting made me wonder if that was cgi too.

      Now that you mention it, I did not see any CEL at all. So that tells me that the cluster is CGI.
