Why indeed. The Thread starter could have asked the question perhaps in a thread dealing with his particular TV, but he did ask it here. It was a simple question and this is a forum so comments were shared. Not surprising though that negative comments are then made and motives are imputed as well as statements redefined in the same familiar twisted fashion. Let them have their sand box I guess. . . till some, poor new member dares to ask a simple question or make a comment.
Well, the question was asked in the display calibration forum and as such, there is a right and wrong answer to the question from an objective, technical standpoint. If image fidelity is to be preserved, de-judder/smoothing controls must be disabled. This is not an opinion but rather a verifiable fact.
However, such a response wasn't good enough for a particular poster and that poster seemed to be offended when others stated facts that went against the poster's personal viewpoints/opinions/biases. Why some of us find the need to challenge/debate display calibration standards in a forum dedicated to following such standards as closely as possible (and then take the responses they get as a result as personal attacks or insults) is beyond me.
For example, if I was to post that the D65 white point makes everything too yellow and that reference white should be something much bluer (perhaps even bluer than D75) and that D65 looks plain wrong or is an outdated standard (all of which is obviously false), what kind of response do most people here think I would get? When other members of forum inevitably posted to correct me, should I take offense to those posters? Of course not.
just read post #14 and then the posts soon following it... in fact, post #14 sounds kinda like an argument starter... my response (post #15) is simply stating the facts and is written in a fairly straightforward and reasonable manner... the following posts are more of the same (such as with #16 and #17)
but it seems my point will never get across or sink in... so, I'm probably just wasting my time with this post
the de-blur setting can be used with any type of program material (TV shows, Sports, Movies, etc.), assuming it doesn't create any artifacts or otherwise negatively alter the video (unwanted side effects)
the de-judder setting should be left off in all cases from a purely technical standpoint as it adds a smoothing effect to the video that wasn't present in the source material, thereby compromising image/video fidelity
"Realism" is a specific artistic goal of a program producer/director/cinematographer team. It is not the traditional prerogative of the audience to dictate how a movie or video program is to look. Personally, I'm eagerly anticipating the completion of 'The Hobbit' and the 'Avatar' sequels, which are being shot in 48fps 3D. They are intended to be exhibited in the same format where possible. It has been reported that current digital cinema projectors can be easily converted for the higher frame rate by a firmware update. Higher native frame rates are reported to result in enhanced realism in the look of the program. James Cameron has stated that he considers higher native frame rates to be a better alternative to improving the look of cinema exhibition than higher resolutions. Early descriptions published by visitors to 'The Hobbit" production set, confirm that the dailies shown to them had a much more realistic appearance that enhanced the three dimensional look of the action. How soon 48fps/3D makes it to home video remains to be seen.
Jackson and Cameron are walking ahead of the troops. The troops are perfectly happy with 24fps so fps is not really something to be excited about at the moment.
