Possibly. I was looking into some Matrix routines yesterday and came across Zero Matrix. From reading reviews, it seems like the gimmick isn't practical for live, close-up use but works well for stage/video magic, like the video you've listed. The routine seems very similar.

I don't see anything indicating, that this is doctored.

Personally, I think that's not a camera trick, because Mario Lopez performs this little routine.
His routines always look like camera tricks.
Nevertheless, I ask what you mean?
Camera trick or not?

I'm guessing it is a similar principle. Maybe. Not sure. I haven't bought Zero Matrix so I couldn't tell your for sure. I think it is not a camera trick, but a stage magic effect brought down to close-up size.

Ok, my other hobby besides magic is 3D-CG and VFX. If there would have been something cut, you wouldnt get that smooth motion. Greenscreening/rotoscoping the coins would leave artifacts at this low quality footage. The coins themselves could be CGI-Models but that would be overkill for a magic related post. That would appear on VFX sites. Although then it isn't that much of an impressive work.
Also I have a shimmer about how this could be done. And it wouldn't be that hard at all.
Therefore I am convinced, that it is 'genuine' magic.

Have fun,
Markus

Markus you're obviously not up to date with Instagram magciains if you think there has to be a visible cut in a worked-video

I didn't say, the cut would be visible. What I meant was that the motion is to complex to not make a detectable failure in continuation.
But if you saw one, I'm always eager to learn...

But you'r right that I'm not up to date with Instagram magicians. There's already enough 'digitality' in my life.

Mario had done other effects that look like it was a camera trick and then released the effect.

I didn't mean that I was able to spot something that you weren't, what I meant is that there are a lot of Instagram magicians nowadays doing very simple tricks that are catching the followers, but are actually video edits, and not sleight of hand.

Yeah, thought so. I just asked to be sure. You know, in the past I saw some of those vids and they where pretty obvious to me. That's why I don't care for Instagram or things like that.
I don't need all this 'follow my clickbait' b*#€s+&t.

Have nice day,
Markus
