    Yes, interesting technology (software). But rubbish speculation! Dr Sally Reynolds - claimed "senior lecturer in Hominin Palaeoecology" (so you would think she should know better, then again, no doubt well versed in evolution fairy-tale storytelling)... makes unsubstantiated claims to the identity of the footprints. This new technique (software) may provide greater insights to the foot structure & subsequent biomechanics relating to the footprints but do not provide the identity of the owner of such footprints, particularly in the manner Dr Reynolds claims. She claims they belong to an "ancestral species called Australopithecus afarensis" - this is your usual evolution presumption fallacy based around bias evolutionary speculation... of which (ironically mind you) contradicts the perceived evolutionary views surrounding "Australopithecus afarensis" i.e. their foot structure & subsequent habitual form of locomotion e.g. they were not habitual bipeds for starters & wouldn't have looked like the accompanying picture (i.e. pelvis morphology & other claimed arboreal traits not present) ascribed to the video whist these un-scientific (unfounded) statements were being made...
