In this short analysis I will explore a theory that has been circulating the internet regarding Flight 175's plane wing briefly passing behind the edge of the North Tower Building in the Michael Hezarkhani video footage. Many people have thought that this was evidence for proof that the Michael Hezarkhani video was fabricated.
To explain briefly why the plane's wing appears to be going behind the North Tower's edge in this version of the Michael Hezarkhani video above, is because the video has been converted into "super" slow-motion.
This is a process which takes a normal video recording at 30fps and makes it into 60fps or 90fps using some computer software. This is so the video runs smoother when viewed in slow-motion.
The process to create a "super" slow-motion effect basically creates interpreted frames between the "original" frames. So the frame being created is not entirely a genuine frame, as it is an interpreted creation of two frames which is known as "motion interpolation", also known as: Inbetweening or tweening which is the process of generating "intermediate" frames between two images to give the appearance that the first image evolves smoothly into the second image, which is why we see the anomaly circled in red in the video image above, where the plane's wing appears to disappear behind the edge of the North Tower building. This anomaly is no-way attributed to "video fakery" as suggested by many researchers. Just an artefact of the software to create the video to appear in "super" slow-motion.
See brief visual explanation below with normal 30fps frame rate.
As we can see the plane's wing is very similar in colour to the North Tower's edge colour. The computer software struggles to separate the two colours, especially when trying to convert and create a lower quality compressed version of the of Michael Hezarkhani video, which is why we see the visual separation effect between the plane's wing and building. See the image on the right below:
As we can observe in the two comparison images above, the image on the left shows the plane's wing is not separated between the North Tower's edge, however they do merge together, because the plane's wing passes in front of the North Tower's edge, however the image on the right demonstrates how the computer software interpreted the frame, thus creating the appearance of the wing disappearing behind the North Tower's edge in the "super" slow-motion video version when compared to the "original" frame on the left.
As we can see, legitimate explanations explain the anomaly in this case, and it cannot be attributed to "video fakery" as suggested by many researchers. Any analysis of the Michael Hezarkhani video should be conducted with the best quality video possible, and not in super slow-motion.
