An Ghost Towns video is made with a span of 2-minute-and-8-seconds. The video was released in 8k format which YouTube is presenting now a days. But when we watch the video in that quality, you see nothing except fro darkness because, your device hardware is not sophisticated to watch the video in 8k format.
Surprisingly this ‘invisible’ video was watched over 1.8 million times on YouTube.The video was released under the title ‘Ghost Towns in 8K’.
Experts tell that the views are not possibly because of its content but because of the video resolution – that is a humongous 8K FUHD (full ultra high definition) that measures 7680 px x 4320 px. This means a single frame of an 8K FUHD video is the size of a 33.2 megapixel image.
Created by Neumann Films, the video captures the beauty of an abandoned American mining settlement in a series of slow moving shots. According to the creators, the video was filmed on “the RED Epic Dragon 6K in portrait orientation and then stitched together in Adobe After Effects,” and some shots were “simply scaled up by 125% from 6.1K to meet the 7.6K standard.”
While 8K is being touted as the future of video, there is very little hardware around that can play such a large format in the way it is intended to be. Till Apple releases that much-discussed 8K iMac, most of us will have to be content with stuttering playback or watch the video in a much lower resolution.
Try to Watch the video in 8K format, after that try once again in ordinary format and see the difference for yourselves:
