Pupik I get it. We are all in a matrix. So where is our Neo?

We're not in the matrix. That's why those mistakes (disappearing wings, missing shadows and unnatural movement) make no sense.
And that's not even an golden eagle.

"David Bird, a McGill University professor of wildlife biology, doubts the video's authenticity. He said the bird looks more like an osprey than a golden eagle.
"Bald eagles and golden eagles both have fairly broad wings. That bird there has long narrow wings," he said."

I haven't read any link just watched the two vids, its not a doll, dolls don't put their hands down to break their fall.
If you were gonna fake a video, you'd fake it better than a bird picking up a kid for 1 second.

Im calling real for now. However, I haven't seen the site that claims to prove its fake yet.

No dolls. CGI. Notice the movement in the video I posted.
And these weird glitches in the matrix: [url="http://i.imgur.com/kZg5S.jpg"]http://i.imgur.com/kZg5S.jpg[/url]

Also hit the news: [url="http://wtvr.com/2012/12/19/viral-fake-out-golden-eagle-snatches-kid-is-cgi/"]http://wtvr.com/2012...hes-kid-is-cgi/[/url]

edit: Damn you streetwolf for posting that link seconds earlier than me :)

could be due to compression though, the video quality is bad enough to allow for such artifacts. For example the shadow is moving from a dark area to a lighter one at the moment it dissapears and reappears, that could very well be caused by a block compression. Also the arm of the child seems to be moving upwards to his head just before the drops, which seems to invalidate the opinion that it's a doll as I wouldn't be expecting an upward motion at that moment from a ragdoll.

I don't know if it is fake or real, but the evidence for it being fake is rather thin.

How's your french? Here's an article saying it was made by four students from a 3d animation school in Montreal.

edit: Here's a quick translation by microsoft translator:

A video put online Tuesday to see a baby grab by an eagle in flight on the Mount Royal is a hoax. The music video, seen by nearly 3 million people in just a few hours, is the work of four students in animation 3D NAD school in Montreal.
The work is a work that they had to produce to a course entitled [i]Simulation of production[/i], given by Professor Robin Tremblay. Each year, its students create 'real' filming movies, and they are encouraged to produce clips that have viral potential.

"The video was shown Tuesday. Students have realized that they had hit a circuit rising Wednesday morning, when they found the number of clicks that they had collected on YouTube, says Mr. Tremblay.[/quote]

Honestly, the only way you could think it was real is if you've never seen an eagle before. :laugh:

OK pretty convincing video. What was shown is fairly plausible. Nice work. (Y)

I don't see what I'm supposed to be looking at in the "Fake" video?
[/quote]

If an eagle was really snatching the kid, the cameraman would have stood still and filmed it better instead of running to help.

Nicely done fake, I wonder how they knew the bird was going to go for the doll.

It's a captive, trained bird.

Oh, yeah, all eagles are *******s. I've seen that video before, but you'll notice he doesn't go [i]up[/i] much once he grabs him. If the video was an eagle knocking a baby off a cliff, I'd totally believe it.

Ahh, I get what you are saying. I took it as eagles don't go after them. Gotcha. ;)

It's fake. The guy who did it was doing an interview in late news here. It's a school project about viral video. They needed 100 000 hits to get A+.

Nice excuse there :) Even when it was zoomed in and full of pixels back in the [url="http://www.neowin.net/forum/topic/1126646-eagle-snatches-kid/page__view__findpost__p__595403118"]video that I posted[/url], it was crystal clear that this isn't real.

Wow! This stuff really looks great!
