I *know* that I want "Motion Enhancer" off, because I hate that 3D look. But "Cinemotion" is confusing me. I know what it does (reverse 3:2) but I'm trying to determine the difference between "Auto 1" and "Auto 2". I just spent like half an our Googling and I've been unable to get an answer.

It appears that Auto 1 *may* do some frame interpolation, even if Motion Enhancer is off. It does make things look odd (to me).

Auto 2 does a better job, to my eye. Some have said that Auto 2 disables Motion Enhancer, but if I turn it to High I can still see some effect, but no where near as pronounced as with Auto 1. Then again, maybe I'm just imagining it.

Does anyone have a definitive source for the different settings for Cinemotion , if Cinemotion adds interpolation, and how the settings may interact with Motion Enhancer?

If your feeding your TV a 1080/24p signal, then Cinemotion IMO should be turned off. I've tried both the Auto 1 and Auto 2, and while Auto 1 is cool if you like to get some of the affects of Motion Enhancer, it causes too much stutter to me. Auto 2 just does the 3:2 pulldown affect, but causes stutter too on my TV( V4100 ). I leave it off after doing a few tests.

I wish Sony would give better examples of this Auto 1 & Auto 2. Other parts of the Menu as well. They give You no clue other than presets... Scene Select You can go to menu & see what Sports does , Cinama... General is most used on reviews. Auto I see nothing change ???

When I had my Sony EX500, I noticed that with Motionflow set to High and Cinemotion set to Auto 1, it would produce the SOE. If you leave Motionflow on High but set Cinemotion to Auto 2, the movie still looked like a movie but without judder. I preffered the Motionflow on High and Cinemotion on Auto 2.

1080P24/motionflow should be off or you will get 1080P.

Here is a Motionflow and Cinemotion explained post and thread.
