Showbusiness is showbusiness. Stunt double in movies get their names on the screen at the end, but they get no fame. They're the ones who do the moves that people pay to see, but they don't have the face, or the acting ability, so someone better looking gets the credit.
I can't believe this is even a news story!

It was only the footprints that were computer generated, and I didn't think they were real anyway. It was a very cool display I thought!
What annoys me, is that if it was say the Sydney Olympics that did the fireworks, it would have been lauded as excellent computer generation. But because China did it, and people want to not like China, it's called "faking", and treated with contempt, and reported in a way that sways the general public to look down on what was a great ceremony.
