Hi All. I'm an old newbie - 60+ [gulp].

Have any of you seen the Youtube videos on the Classic Pass? I'm a tad embarrassed by this question but do you think they may be doctored? Perhaps speeded up at the appropriate moment or even edited to avoid showing the side-flash of cards. I can barely see the hands move and Poof! the deck portions are transposed. It seems to send the Second Law of Thermodynamics into doubt.

What say you?
Cheers,



Ted

Without a link to whatever video you're referring to, I can't be 100% positive, but I'm probably about 99% positive they are not doctored.

I think this for two reasons.
1) It's not that hard to get a pass that's pretty quick and doesn't flash. Just a matter of practicing good technique.
2) Most YT videos are done with cameras that aren't that great anyway. Even a semi-decent pass will probably be more than fast enough to slip by that frame rate. My pass looks phenomenal on videos taken with web cams - not so great in person.

Oh, and a bonus:
3) They can do as many takes as they want and just use the one that looks best.

Yup I'm not too good at the Pass myself but if I'm making a video, I will obviously use the shot where I didn't flash at ALL. And it's very easy to understand doctored videos so that's never a good option.
