Different sized frame. That's the first thing I noticed. I'm pretty good at spotting sleight of hand and that's all that is but very well done.

Its also an optical delusion, again very well done.

I'm not saying exactly what is done but that kind of trick is actually just making us see what really isn't there and/or not seeing what really is there.

Notice the frame is out of your sight? I'd wager its 2 frames, different sizes. As to the rest, I don't know right now but its slight of hand for sure.

The video is edited slightly, the small little fade is where the frame is moved so he can grab it from the same spot of the larger one. Very well done.

He's probably palming the three extra squares. It's the same frame, IMO.

Any time you see one of these and an integral part is put out of sight, there is a reason for that happening.

This looks like a reasonable test. I shall try it, for science....then I'll eat the science.

There's some fancy editing going on there. If you watch closely, you'll see when he moves the pieces to realign the diagonal cut, some of the squares aren't square any more, then magically they are again.
