The film appears to be in focus in spite of being widely referred to as blurry or out-of-focus. The "benefit" of the hoax is that the subject is very far away, not that the lens wasn't focused.

And there is motion blur...

I'll need to see the "camera original" roll of film to verify.

Which I think no one has ever seen.

When I think of the parts of the PGF prior to Patty's entrance, I don't think of good quality, in focus film suitable for trying to get more detail...

Yeah, converting the PGF to 4K is even more laughable. It really is a cult of gullibility.

The resolution of the 16mm celluloid probably exceeds 4K, and greater detail might be revealed by scanning it at that resolution but my original question remains. How does he expect people to view what he creates at 4K?

At the minimum it requires a 4K monitor or television. So then what is the source format - delivered to you on a 4K disc to be played in a 4K disc player?

I'm skeptical that you'd get anything better than sharper clumps of silver halide. I think we've seen all the legit detail we're going to from the PGF, such as it is. More lies and Photoshop are certainly possible, though.

Once I was trying to think of things to do with my wife (probably not actually wife at the time but that's irrelevant I guess) and I saw that they were showing Beauty and the Beast at the IMAX. Well I knew she liked that movie and so we got tickets and went in and...

Well it turns out when you take a hand drawn cartoon and blow it up to IMAX size you just get a lot of big ugly lines. There's no detail to enhance, so everything actually ends up getting worse. It was a total waste of money. But technically I got what I paid for - an IMAX showing of the Beauty and the Beast cartoon.

Likewise, you can show anything you want in 4K if you really feel like it. It's not technically false advertising if you say it right. But that doesn't mean it's worth anything.

Yes, this is what happens when you push the limits of the medium.

I won't disagree with the notion of pushing mediums to their limits, but 16mm Kodachrome II was quite fine for a medium. The Kodak lens that was presumably used was also excellent.

I'm more experienced with 35mm Kodachrome in still photography (and even more experienced with B&W up to 4x5in), but we can probably agree that Munns as usual is trying to put lipstick on a pig in order to generate interest/revenue. Anything he says is stupid guff IMO.

He is an exceedingly strange man. I don't know of any Bigfoot promoters who are not exceedingly strange. There are millions of people who are not like that but I don't know of any who promote the existence of Bigfoot. This is not simply because they believe in Bigfoot, but more importantly, their rationality and reasoning towards the natural world is exceedingly strange.

When I see Kodachrome stills and movies from back in the day, the images almost always look spectacular.

I have never seen any version of the PGF, or still, that looks above "meh" on my image scale.

I haven't seen a version of the PGF that looks like it was filmed on good film, through a good lens, on a nice day.

Bill didn’t claim to have first gen copies. As far as I know, not only is the camera original missing but so are ALL the first gen copies. The weirdo Beckjord supposedly had a first gen copy but he died and the copy he had wasn’t first gen. It went to the Willow Creek Museum.

This “stacking process” has another serious problem which is the misalignment of pixels. Bill did not scan the frames. He photographed them digitally using a Canon Rebel. So he has four digital images of each frame each consisting of rows of pixels. The problem is that he cannot register the pixels to the same exact place on the frames. Or more correctly he cannot register the image to the same point on the starting pixel.
In his book Bill used a similar idea to compare different frames in hopes of showing motion. It wasn’t valid for that use and it isn’t valid for this use either.

This is a shiny object/gimmick, as several have pointed out. Something new to sell to the producers. No evidence whatsoever that it shows anything more accurately than the best copy, and it is probably worse. The rubes will look at it and see whatever they want to see.

The show KILLING BIGFOOT is hilarious.

It features the GCBRO
http://gcbro.com/

They go to these places where the witnesses are skerred, and then pretend to find evidence that BF is around, and then set up a night hunt, where inevitably, they have to quit early because either: they have incompetence in their group, or someone gets scared and they call it off.

It reminds me of the NAWAC except it's on TV

It takes a special kind of stupid to want to go on TV and showcase that stupid each and every episode. Even the freaks (like) on Swamp People catch real 'gators.

Just saw a trailer for a animated movie called "Smallfoot"It's about a yeti who sees a human (a "smallfoot") and none of the other Yeti's believe him since everyboy knows Humans are mythical creatures......looks funny.

Thanks for that - Magrat and I just watched the trailer - It look really great!

I can see our family really wanting to see that! Especially as Danny DeVito is one of the voice actors!

The town of Whitehall, NY has just declared Bigfoot to be their "official animal".

They do a lot of Bigfoot-related tourism promotion. A town law declares Bigfoot to be an endangered species. They have four Bigfoot statues and an annual Bigfoot Half-Marathon and Sasquatch Festival. The last Saturday of September has been declared "Sasquatch Appreciation Day" and this year's Sasquatch Festival will feature screenings of "The Beast of Whitehall" and "Harry and the Hendersons".

Pure insanity. Wasn't there a guy on the old JREF who was from there and saw Bigfoot pretty much everywhere he went up there? So funny they claim to be so down with it all, yet the first and only picture of a supposed real beast that shows up on their Times Union story is from like 1972 and it's an obvious and admitted fake/hoax going way back...to 1972. That's really the best picture the Blind Bigfooters of Whitehall™ could supply for the story?

I have been checking into the Beckjord stuff donated to the Willow Creek museum and there is no first gen copy there nor is there any known first gen copy anywhere.

I'm certainly not surprised. Most of what I've "known" about it was told by Beckjord himself and he would have been the first kind of person to claim a third generation PGF copy was a first generation. Though I'd bet serious money Patterson's wife and/or DeAtley do have both the original and a good master and probably even other copies.

I did and I don't know why. The suit especially. Isn't it like the holy grail? And I'm convinced DeAtley (not Patterson's wife) either has it under lock and key or it was completely destroyed almost immediately after (within weeks). It had to go into hiding at least as soon as the PGF got any traction for fear their ruse would become unraveled so easily if it ever showed up. Disparaging words from the Bob Heironimouses of the world they could defend with more (mere) words, actual Bigfoot suits not so much.

Patterson was running a money making hoax with the whole bigfoot deal, capped by his masterpiece movie, imo. So I think Patterson destroyed that suit pretty quickly.

Making a second movie of bigfoot would have been too risky. A lot of people would have begun to be suspicious if Patterson just happened to get lucky a second time and have bigfoot sashay across his bow again.

I think the bigfoot suit had lost it's value to Patterson, and it was only a liability.

Mrs. Patterson doesn’t have a first gen copy. DeAtley may but he hasn’t admitted it and has no reason to hide it. He may still have the roll which contains the stomp test that Gimlin repeatedly refers to.

The stomp test idea was probably abandoned when Patty's estimated weight from the film just wasn't matching up to the supposed stomp test results.
