I understand about 48Hz at the movies but this is ridiculous. Showing one frame 5 times in a row on an LCD panel is surely no different from showing it once for a 25th of a second. What's the downtime between frames on these displays anyway? If you were to film it at high speed would you ever see a black screen? I doubt it.
Well with Motion flow they actually interpolate some of these frames to try and create a smoother picture.
Oh, I see.
I once saw a Philips TV that did that interpolation thing. Was very weird. Give me the pictures as produced, dammit!
