You won't believe your eyes, literally. Video tracing.
VideoTrace is a system for interactively generating realistic 3D models of objects from video—models that might be inserted into a video game, a simulation environment, or another video sequence.

If video becomes so easy to manipulate with such little effort, it seems like we'll no longer be able to trust that what we are shown is real...

Seems so easy to be able to copy and paste a 3D model of a person and place them into another video, so much could be done, especially given how online videos have taken off.

Removing things from video has always been possible and easier than placing something from another source and making it look real. Could give out of context a whole new meaning.

There should be some kind of watermarking feature to ensure this doesn't happen, guess from now on we can only believe what we see only with our own eyes, except for blue-beam and other holograms lol

this is silly. yes, computer and video animation have advanced to the point where it may become difficult to tell what is real and what is not. however, this little software program is not the reason for that. rather, it is the massive new technologies which are responsible for that.

whoever produced this video was trying to lull us. the tracing would not cause the sydney opera house to also have color, shadows, texture etc. the computer does all this on its own. the tracing stuff is just some kind of a prank.

The point is, video technology has evolved to the point that you simply cannot trust that what you see on video is real.

The scene in which they cloned the SUV and showed the same vehicle in two parking spots was pretty amazing.

5 stars for you, OP.

I'm sure the people who needed such services in the past found a way to do so, this is more about this "little software program" being accessible to anyone and everyone which would start a cascading effect of video editing objects and people in and out of videos with basic knowledge required in video editing. For the most part we're able to take what we see in video as truth, even if it is presented out of context. Realistic CGI right now requires high end software and know how and CGI is still at a point where people can easily tell if something is fake.

Seems like video will soon be merely for entertainment. People tend to prefer fiction over truth.

You can go to the website and sign up for beta if you don't believe the video (hah).

Amazing for indie devs such as me and people who are interested in making fan movies of games like fallout (such as me) and will help a lot in the special effects parts and guns.
