Titanic - More on "Flopping"
We all know that the boarding scenes were reversed in editing because only the exterior of the right side of the ship was built, but the left side was pulled up to the dock for boarding. In the opening sequence we see a young lady leaning over the rail of the ship, looking to the right of the screen and waving vigorously with her left hand. Later we see the same girl in the same posture, but looking to the LEFT and waving with her RIGHT hand. Looks like this snippet of film was used twice, once "flopped" and once not!

Someone on the set did find out most people waving their right hands. Although all the extras had been told to wave their left hands, many people just kept forgetting.

I have watched the making of Titanic and most of the people waving on the boat are not people at all. They are animation.

That is not entirely correct. The animated people were in the wide pans of the ship. If you look carefully, right before the captain makes the remark about 'stretching her legs' you see Murdock and the Captain's backs. This part is digital, and you can tell if you have that kind of eye. also, when they show Fabritzio and Jack on the front of the ship doing 'the king of the world' bit, they pan back and wide to show the whole ship, and at that part, all of the people you see on the top of the boat are digital. But, no, all of the close shots on extras waving were of real people. perhaps you were thinking of the far shots, from the ground up to the top of the ship.
