The sorcery you have recorded should be just as inexplicable in real life as it is on camera. We do not believe it is in the spirit of this sub to allow editing of videos in this way because being good at editing videos is simply not sorcery. If you have any comments, suggestions or questions please ask them here.

Makes sense. The sub is for weird, hard to explain stuff. Using special effects is kinda cheating. His videos belong more on subreddits like r/unexpected

Pretty much only these, just not in the spirit of the sub. He makes cool videos but he's no black magic sorcerer.

This also mean much less content. I completely agree with CGI, but I fear that's it's a bit irrealistic

If it can be explained by CGI, it's not black magic

Unrealistic or irregular? Are you getting enough fiber, dear?

I believe this qualifies. See the cars below change when it cuts back forward. https://www.reddit.com/r/blackmagicfuckery/comments/6oghk0/edge_of_a_building/?st=J5CSWDUM&sh=8ae74694

thanks for appreciating it, usually everyone only complains about what they'd do better, but we try (and have lives too)

Can you please remove posts that are interesting and satisfying, but explicable and unfantastical?

Can there be an exception made for visualizations of mathematical "black magic", like fractals, MC escher illustrations, hypercubes, impossible triangles, optical illusions, surprising graphs, etc.

Yes those are fine, it's just if it has no basis in either theory or reality and/or the editing has been done to trick the viewer into perceiving it as real or bmf when actually it's not

Are not these people called "tech wizards" and are thus sorcerers?
