Hi, List

I'm afraid that Billy Cox's initial impression that this YouTube
video might have some validity is incorrect. It is, in an
analysis I saw a link to in one of the comments in the DeVoid
thread concerned, not a great hoax at all, but rather inept, in
fact:

See: http://thehoaxkiller.com/?p=106

This link has both a video analysis of the various masking
errors (which include a couple frames where the smoke ring,
which was added in, goes _backwards_), and a technical write-up
which provides supplementary details.


Next?

Steve
