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.
