  •  Yeah, well, it's a post production effect. (4+ / 0-)

    Not a hack.  Sorry.

    Looking at it on a couple of systems right now, and besides the much wider black overlay mask that kicks in the frame after the actual Fox ticker cuts off, that black is way, way below the blacks in the rest of the shot at that point -- although they do get it sorted out a few frames later.

    They probably didn't see this while they were comping it - you need decent picture monitoring and some knowledge of reading a waveform monitor (or know the tricks when you don't :), but there's absolutely NO WAY that's real.

    There were some other clues as well - some motion blur that didn't exactly match and a couple of dodgy lens focus mismatches - but the GIANT 0 IRE SOLID BLACK BANDAID was pretty much a giveaway :)

    I'll post pics if anyone would like to see.
