    Sorry, its a fake.

    See the green desktop background? He used it to key out the screen and have the illusion of being transparent. Its easy in FCP.

    That was horrible, nice syncing, but there were the green edges, and quite obviously he was keying it (green background), he could have at least keyed a real backgound onto it, that might have fooled us. Who am I to say though, I've never done this... yet.

    Yeah. I would have started with the default blue background and then faded to the keyed green. That way you'd never actually see the green.

    I liked the part where he said "to go back to normal... press shift twice..." then he pressed the space bar twice. ;)

    It is amazing that Apple is gaining this mythic image. They can now imbue devices with mystical power? This guy might as well make a video where he double clicks an application which emits healing light from the screen or resurrects the dead via the internet.

    I don't know about the magical invisibility keybind, but if you press CTRL+ALT+APPLE+EJECT together, it plays a secret tune with vocals sung by Classic's Victoria. :p

    Yeah, I liked that part too. Certainly an unintended side effect of his "sense of humour."

    Luckily I wasn't doing anything important at the time so just laughed out loud! Had I done this a few weeks ago in the middle of my project, I would not have been a happy chappy!!
