Cubing Videos: Real or Fake

I know when things are real or sped up. Brian Sun is not sped up although he is extremely fast, you can tell. You can tell that people like Cube for Speed speed up their footage, it just doesn't feel natural. Everything just feels... so choppy and fast, even a little smooth (If that makes sense). Although I do like their alg videos for instance, speeding up footage is not okay. I bet Cube for speed is actually only a sub 20 cuber or something.
Yeah. And there's actually nothing wrong with being only sub-20, you can average that speed and still be extremely knowledgable about cubing. I wish they'd just be honest.

True, I am only averaging around 25 seconds, but it's fine. Cubing is just a hobby and you do it for fun, not everything is about fast times and showing off you speed or your cubes.

ok tell me what you think of this footage, which is choppy only because of lower fps


(obviously Ciarán is legit)

That looks 100% real. I mean, Cube for Speed's framerate is high, and his turning is just super unnatural. Besides, even when he is reacting or stopping or starting the timer you can see. Like seriously, I never said anything about choppy footage. What are you talking about.

Just look at the scramble. Very sus ngl. Like, why do you have literal CLL done at the top with a 3 bar. Probably a setup for xxx-cross. Also the scramble is less than 20 moves, I went through it frame by frame. I want to point out that it is his very first solve of the session, but he supposedly had a solve right before that. And then he didn't even go to the next scramble or even use the timer. Perhaps he was practicing this scramble until he got a good time.

when you say "casual" before a great time it is for sure fake.
