Real or fake?

Is that image above real or is it a computer generated fake? If you think you can pick out the real from the fake then head over to Autodesk and take their little real/fake quiz. As advances in CGI become more photorealistic telling the real one from a CGI one will become more difficult. A large number of the high-end automotive commercials use all CGI these days anyway. That German sports sedan driving upside down on an inverted roadway is all CGI. As is the American pick-up truck that magically disassembles and then reassembles itself. Of course we know they can’t do this in real life but the images look so real it is very convincing. How many did you get right? I only got 6.

    Searching for a TV commercial in which a vehicle dissambles and re-assembles, I saw your site. Can you tell me which car maker ran the commercial and whether it’s available to view?

    I believe it was a GMC Truck or Chevrolet full size in that ad we are talking about. I would search You Tube as it’s most likely to be posted there.
