    There will soon come a time when we will not be able to tell the difference between real transference of visual reality and the created illusions that serve other purposes.

    I say this in jest, because that time could very well be now...








    Of course these graphic additions (Computer Generated Imagery) are obvious to distinguish, right?

    Journalist:
    "Does it raise ethical questions about the use of government money to produce stories about the government that wind up being air without disclosure that they were produced by the government?"

    Bush:
    "It's been a long standing process by the government"





    "That's what we were told, a second plane, we saw it on television"


    Context will put more things into better perspective

    Will touch on a lot of the magic of television, but here is some other trinkets



    Reporter:
    "It was like a movie"

    Reporter speaks to a man in black suit:
    "What's your role out here right now?"

    Response:
    "Just standing by right now, can't say what role I'm playing right now"

    A day later...

    Lying With Pixels

    Seeing is no longer believing. The image you see on the evening news could well be a fake - a fabrication of fast new video-manipulation technology.

    by Ivan Amato
    July 1, 2000

    But the ramifications of this new technology reach beyond satellite imagery. As live electronic manipulation becomes practical, the credibility of all video will become just as suspect as Soviet Cold War photos. The problem stems from the nature of modern video. Live or not, it is made of pixels, and as Livingston says, pixels can be changed.

    ...

    So far, real-time video manipulation has been within the grasp only of technologically sophisticated organizations such as TV networks and the military. But developers of the technology say it’s becoming simple and cheap enough to spread everywhere. And that has some observers wondering whether real-time video manipulation will erode public confidence in live television images, even when aired by news outlets. “Seeing may no longer be believing,” says Norman Winarsky, corporate vice president for information technology at Sarnoff. “You may not know what to trust.”

    ...

    The ability to manipulate video data in real time, he says, has just as much potential as some of these forerunners. “Now that you can alter video in real time, you have changed the world,” he says. That may sound inflated, but after looking at the Katarina Witt demo, Winarsky’s talk of “changing the world” loses some of its air of hyperbole.

    Deleting people or objects from live video, or inserting prerecorded people or objects into live scenes, is only the beginning of the deceptions becoming possible. Pretty much any piece of video that has ever been recorded is becoming clip art that producers can digitally sculpt into the story they want to tell, according to Eric Haseltine, senior vice president for R&D at Walt Disney Imagineering in Glendale, Calif.

    Have seen some mention this crazy and wild idea that images from space or on the "International Space Station" are ALL CGI (Computer Generated Imagery), but of course this is impossible and far fetched to even conceive.



    I mean this looks 100% legit, right.
    Aside for the woman constantly bobbing up and down while her male counterpart seems to have more experience with this "no gravity" situation, because he fairly more composed.

    But then there is a interesting clip with George H. W. Bush talking with ISS crew members and this appears in the backdrop

    upload_2016-3-18_17-11-6.png

    Some are attempting to claim this is blue screen for CGI added effects, but not sure.
    The closest explanation was something to do with a project called SPHERES a few years ago, which was used to demonstrate how difficult it would be to land a "rover/probe" on a moving object like a comet.



    The blue backdrop just seems to have been for multiple purposes, and in the case of the clip above, to prevent the object being tossed from flying off and getting lost, if anything it would just stick to the blue Velcro if he missed the SPHERE spinning around.

    Here is more on the Rosetta mission from about a year ago

    Short PG version


    Longer Adult version

    Television has decrease the distance between men and Television itself. Now everything is possible to see what is happening in the outside world.
