During the 2023 Pride Month, social media users circulated a video clip purporting to show the Arc de Triomphe in Paris encircled with a looping giant rainbow to celebrate the 2023 Pride Month.
Misbar investigated the circulating video clip and found it to be fake.
The video is animated, and there is no evidence that such an installation is actually installed around the iconic Parisian monument.

The artist clarified on his Twitter account that he did not use AI, but he used 3D animation and lots of hand-edited details.
What Is 3D Animation?
3D animation refers to the process of generating moving images in a three-dimensional environment, creating the perception that digital objects are moving within a 3D space. This is accomplished through the utilization of computer software to create and manipulate digital objects, or by implementing specialized hardware such as motion capture devices.
Real-time animation is a form of computer animation produced using specific software and hardware, often referred to as game engines. It enables the generation of images that can be displayed in real-time without the need for rendering delays. This immediate display allows for interaction with characters and objects on the screen, providing instant visual feedback.
Real-time animation is extensively employed in video games and has also gained prominence in recent years for virtual production in movies, TV shows, and live broadcasts.
