How a UFO video is faked


Senior Member.
Don't knock the hubcap trick, it may be primitive but it still works:
Sometimes bad fakes are the best. The one in the OP is a pretty good effect from a technical standpoint, but it's about halfway down the wrong side of the uncanny valley - it just doesn't seem right, for all its detail. The hubcap trick gives no digital artifacts, no uncanny valley effect from not-quite-perfect CGI, provides smooth and natural movement, and accounts for camera movement.
