.......at what point did anybody say it was 100% CGI?...
100% it is CGI.
But this isn't.
....It is just CGI, so what?...
.......IT IS A COMPOSITE, it is CGI.
This conclusive enough?Um, er, what part of almost escapes your reading comprehension skills? Almost means not all, doesn't it?
Shot almost entirely as separate elements, ...
..... …...digital artists that was responsible for the actual work, Brenda Busstra-Smink?You missed majority right there, kind of implies that while the majority of images were composites, some were not.
She says "The majority of the eyes where shot clean with no active reflections . ....
At no point did you ever concede that any of that video might have been shot in camera, you repeatedly insisted emphatically that it was CGI, just GCI, 100% it is CGI.
Goodness you really do have a bug up your butt....
Yes, please crawl out.
I phrase my writings carefully. When I am less that 100% certain of any topic, I use terms like might, possibly, maybe, could, not 100%, is, certain, conclusive etc.
Even in light of multiple examples from others, including links from yourself to a Franz Lanting example and an entire flickr page demonstrating the concept and technique for showing reflections from distance showing clearly on the surface of an eye, the eye being the focus point of the camera/lens, you continued going on about auto focus blather which is totally irrelevant from a technical standpoint.
You apparently learned nothing even from your own examples, possibly forgot some that you might have known previously.
Your foot stamping petulance comes across as infantile, pompous, contradictory self aggrandizement.
I'd consider it a favor if you would please, block me so you won't reads my posts nor offensively reply to them.

This idjit is done.
I am not the one with reading comprehension issues, "100% it is CGI" does not mean, 100% of
it is CGI.
Love your selective quoting too. Did I not say these too?
"I knew from first look some of them had to be CGI,some are very easy to do without, the first 16 seconds for instance, the sparklers, the spotlights etc, but some are impossible to film directly, the surfer, the boxer, the meteorite etc. "
As is the meteor shot, which castes doubt on most, if not all, the others.
And gave you quotes from the artists that created it like this.
"Shot almost entirely as separate elements, the eyes and the reflection plates were composited seamlessly together."
"The majority of the eyes where shot clean with no active reflections . It was our job then to composite in the various reflections".
You were the one saying Canon wouldn't use CGI with comments like this, "On further reflection, why would our beloved Canon, the long standing dominator of the pro imaging market resort to CGI in a corporate production? They make and sell the gear that makes such a production possible, surely they also have access to the talent and experience to execute." And "I continue to doubt that Canon would resort to CGI to promote imaging gear, this was not an Adobe, fake what you can't do for real, production." I wasn't saying they never don't use CGI.
Here are some more fool quotes for you too
