      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.

      Why do all of these videos have the same look?

      Should have hired an actor, to be more convincing..

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

      Look at your signature, now back to mine, now back to yours, now back to mine. Sadly, yours isn't mine, but if you stopped using your old signature and changed it to this one, it could look like mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're on a car forum, reading this signature.

      Didn't want to sound like an idiot (what else is new?) but, at first, I also thought the GTI and the surroundings were real and the UFOs were the only CGI bits.

      Yes it's 100% CGI. Everything: the sky, landscape, car drivers's hand, and of course the UFO's.

      Pretty damn convincing. Watching it only once I could have sworn that at least the car was real and that you green-screened the other stuff.

      Limp Mode.
      The German engineers that I know (even the Germans that aren't engineers that I know) would be disappointed to get away without getting probed.
      Lately I have been testing "tip-in events". Just the tip-in. Just to see how it feels. Response time is typically on the order of 2-3 seconds. Sometimes the injection timing is a little off...

      First: I did not work for free. One of my contract jobs is as in in-house director/vfx supervisor for a Los Angeles visual effects school. This was an experiment in full CGI scenes. And yes I am paid.

      Second: There is no "real footage". Take off the tinfoil hat.

      Third: "intelligence agencies", whatever that means, do not "pay designers" to do films like these. I suggest you ease off on watching X-Files on Netflix.

      Then again, You're probably just joking. Man I hope you're joking.
