I don’t always notice it at first. Then I will think to myself “Why does this 100 million dollar animated movie look like a local car commercial?”
Huh, I don’t know what that is… of course, I lost the remote on my TV (never used it anyway), and I pretty much use my TV to play video games… infrequently.
I trust in my brother to tell me what my TV does. It’s in his house, after all (se we can watch Pacific Rim in 3D!!!)
You should try turning it off on their microwave oven.
I hate motion smoothing. Turning it off is always step 1 before using a TV. 🙂
I have to admit I don’t know what motion smoothing is….
I personally quite like the effect. The only reason we notice it is because it’s different, since all high-production movies are shot at an horridly inferior 24 frames per second, typically. We are so used to watching 100-million-dollar movies in an inferior format that when something comes on using newer and better capture technology, we call it “bad” and/or “unnatural”. How weird is that?
Yeah, but it’s artificial smoothing, and it doesn’t work that great anyways.
When motion is too fast on the TV, it doesn’t smooth it out, which kind of defeats the purpose!
I’d rather watch movies in the FPS they were shot at, rather than have my TV “guess”.
My office recently got a new “smart” TV in the lounge room, and it’s disturbing trying to watch live action shows because there’s some kind of automatic “quality enhancement” that will every once in a while speed up the playback rate just enough to remove the comfortable TV universe look and make it feel like you are just standing in the studio watching the actors on a set. I think the feature is meant to make sports look like in-person, but I never watch that.
