I may be completely wrong, but that looks like some VFX work there
@3DAnimator, oh good. I too question the look of this.
But maybe its just the quality of the vid.
Im no expert. Just a public education graduate with squinty eyes when i suspect something.
But I digress.
@JacieTwisted, there are a couple of things that put it into question for me, but only because it is the kind of stuff that my professors would point out all the time.
First off, the lighting doesnt seem quite right, there arent shadows where there should be. The motion blur on the propellers when they "explode" seems to be off as well, a very hard thing to get right with combining video footage with digital assets.
The last (and largest) thing is the interaction, or in some parts lack of it. Pieces of propeller seem to light ans floaty to be real, and kick up no dust or dirt when they land. When the engine hits the dirt, the dirt it kicks up is way to dark in color, meaning they need to clamp the black values down for better integration.
@3DAnimator, small thing people dont know. Those white power windmills are HUGE. They get downplayed in movies, games, pics, etc. So i was expecting a huge earthquakelike shake when those parts hit the ground. So mix of meh vfx and no shake did it for me.
@JacieTwisted, I behave in a similiar fashion as I size up any disruption or interference to my meme addiction.
@3DAnimator, the last little detail that is totally unrelated to the effects that you mentioned is the total lack of reaction from the cameraman. Knowing the size of those things you would be clearing away from that window and fast.
@3DAnimator, another thing that seemed unnatural to me was the very smooth and precise camera movement and zoom
@3DAnimator, this is vfx but sometimes this does happen. Wind turbines have brakes to stop the from spinning ti fast but then they break, they start spinning too fast causing them to catch fire and eventually fall to the ground. It can be very dangerous.
@3DAnimator, as someone who’s seen this happen that actually looked very close to the real thing.
@3DAnimator, it is a 3d animation, I remember seeing this 3d animation on a 3d animation art Instagram account a few days ago.
@The Flame War, im not saying that it doesnt happen, I'm very aware of that, haha. And mercy be to the poor soul who is close enough to witness that. I was simply pointing my views out on why this this looked fake to me.
@LordGoofBall, @ThePandaPool, oh trust me, I'm aware of how huge those things are. I live in colorado and I remember having to wait in my car as a train passed with a bunch of propellers for one. They were more massive then I could have ever imagined, and it really put into perspective how huge the turbines themselves are.
@3DAnimator, the big thing for me is that the main propeller in view here is springing the opposite way of the other 3 behind it. at first I thought it was just something wierd with the rpm and fps syncing but the more I watch it (and particularly the rotations as its striking the ground) I think they may have just missed that detail
@3DAnimator, even more so this is shot from a phone, they don't have that great of cameras. This looks like some quality vid. I bet vfx
@3DAnimator, don’t forget it’s the only windmill turning that way. All the others are turning a different way.
@3DAnimator, to me what gave it away is the pieces of the propeller would have flown away based on the speed of rotation. The pieces just seemed to float up and down instead is following the centripetal force. Stupid physics are hard to nail down.
I guess this time, the fan hit the shït
Fake and gay
Who remember Ray William Johnson?
This is my aesthetic
I forget what the mechanism is called but there's actually a device in these wind turbines that prevents them from spinning up too fast causing catastrophic failure. Sometimes those devices can be faulty.
@Bonersaurus, although there is a rotor brake on wind turbines that would have just burned up in this case... What failed was the speed governer that feathers the blade pitch to keep the turbine spinning at a set rpm
This was on r/simulated on reddit the other day so this is in fact fake.
They knew! Holy smokes Batman that was nuts!
Wind turbine blades generally split and crack lengthwise due to the materials the blades are made of (fibreglass and other composites) it is unlikely that all the blades would snap widthwise instead of being broken lengthwise in the event of a failure. And it is also unlikely that they would all snap exactly at the same instant.
Pretty sure if this was to happen, the blades won't burst like that. Also why the other fans blowing in the other direction. Either way. Creating editing just need to fine tweak the details.
The remake of Bonanza is looking pretty sweet.
I think this was on a subreddit called "simulation"
I doubt it's real just because the guy barely finches when the explodes. Even if person who does not hit the deck in a situation like that he would at least flinch more.
While not completely impossible, the blades are spinning the opposite direction from the three "real" ones. It would be odd to put different blades on just one of the turbines. This is coming from someone with no VFX skills whatsoever, keep that in mind.
This is the start of a world ending apocalypse movie
*Aliens guy* “Kansas”
I’m just assuming
