Are you really serious?
You must have been rolling your eyes while you read the post because you certainly misunderstood what was written. This is not about lack of art. Its about the consumer's right to "season" his purchase as he sees fit. This is about a particular panel's use of interpolation as a means to remove an undesirable effect, inherent with a particular technology, and the opinion
of the patron of the side effect. As avant garde as some movie-makers pretend to be, all cinema follows rigid guidelines, which renders its designation as pure art a moot point. It is prepared and sold to garner the largest audience possible. Why should its visual aspect be any different?
Manufacturers of HD panels feverishly strive to produce product that can closely adhere to the guideline. Yet all of these panels allow the purchaser to adjust the picture ad infinitum. Why? Aren't they aware of the rec standard, the perfect gamma setting, blah, blah, blah..? Frame interpolation is considered to be heresy by the elitist overlords of this panel. Is it considered sacrilege to add a pinch of salt to a dish from Bobby Flay?
Remember, that this board is a medium for the sharing of opinions
, solutions to problems and ideas, not for bashing someone who doesn't agree with you. Some like the effect, some abhor it. Granted. It's not that serious, people! Good will toward men, remember? Irrespective of what's said here or consensually agreed upon, unless some Huxley-esque Brave New World regime kicks my door in and monitors whether or not the frame interpolation on my set has been activated or not, I'm going to watch it any way I damn well please! Merry Christmas, gents...
