No, not at all.

it's playing the game in a TAS emulator using frame advance, slowdowns and savestates. All while recording the exact input made in an input file, called a "movie"

When replaying back the movie in the emulator, it forces the exact same inputs I pressed during the playing (which took 2+ months btw) thus playing back the exact same playback everytime.

In other words, play the game once and it'll always be played back the same way.

ANoDe beat me to it
