So how can this be applied to bigfoot research? The EVM (Eulerian Video Magnification) software can detect the slightest of movements. Movements that go unnoticed due to our spatial vision. The movement of the eye as it constantly adjusts and focuses for instance, or the up and down drumming of our pulse going through the vein in our wrist. It can see blood pumping beneath the skin. Items that are indicative of a living, breathing creature. Items that a costume or other man-made device does not have. The easiest way to understand it is to just see it for yourself, so watch the videos below.
Let's think about the Patterson film for a moment. The most argued piece of bigfoot evidence in history. With this software we would be able to see any muscle movement in an amplified form. The amount of information that could be gained by watching the locomotion of the individual would surpass any work that has been done previously. Or what about the "Matilda" video? The "Tent video"? Any video of a supposed bigfoot creature could be looked at with this filter applied, and most likely be determined whether it was a manufactured suit or a living, breathing, blood pumping creature.
YouTube user Enki Amenra has already done a test on the Patterson film. However, I do not feel they had the best zoomed and stabilized copy of the footage possible. I'm also uncertain they were using the software properly. You can watch their video below.
This is the great part however. You do not have to be on staff at MIT to use this technology, nor do you have to spend hundreds of dollars to get a copy. MIT has offered it up for free. Anyone can use it. You can find all the information you need, along with the free software at the link below.
Another version is available online through Quanta Research Cambridge, which allows you to upload videos and then process them through the filters directly on their website. You can find that link below.
This is a major breakthrough in video technology, and will be a great asset to many different fields. I sincerely hope this generates an interest in some of the people in the bigfoot research community who could put this software to great use. In my opinion, this is a real game changer in video analysis.
New doors have been opened.
