Question about the review of clicked movies

Post by WorWizard »

I have a question for those that review the movies that have been clicked on as having a possible particle track.

When you review the movie, do you note where the area of click took place on the screen and note it, or do you simply review the whole movie?

This could also answer the question about multipule possible tracks on a single movie.

Our reviewers look everywhere in the whole movie. The click location is used as an initial guide and will eventually be helpful in determining naming rights.

Indeed, that is why if there appears to be more than one thing of interest in a movie, simply click on one of them.

But again, two interstellar tracks in a single frame is extremely unlikely.

Just a feeling, But, I think that your team will be more than peasantly surprised at what you get from this. I think there will be only 5 to 10 large ones, but I have the feeling that there will be hundreds on ones that are 1 micron and less in size.
