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!

TomAckroyd: Random thoughts:


..


For 24p-originated programmes I would prefer to watch sped-up 25fps than 3:2 pulldown anyday.



Also - PS3 at 50p must look pretty cool. If the engine actually renders each 50th of a second's motion. Does it?


For most content I can live with the speedup but for musicals I find it grating. Hence I will never purchase a PAL DVD or BR title that is a musical.  I don't find 3:2 pulldown annoying. But that can be alleviated by the TV's and HD players that can output 24fps

Oh, so its like pixel plus then. I think I will pass on that, makes everything look like a bad chromakey job with dodgey edges when I last saw pixelplus in action.
