You can duplicate the 48fps look by using Pure Motion, now found on some projectors like the Optoma HD3300. It does create the weird soap opera effect and for 2D 24fps movies, it makes them look like cheap made for TV movies, so I never use it. I think the difference here is for 3D, the 48fps adds realism and sharpness to make the scenes come alive. Of course, just speeding up the fps isn't going to add anymore sharpness, but it might make 3D movies at home seem more realistic. It's been awhile since I used Pure Motion. Perhaps I will try it again with Avatar and check back with the forum as to what it does for 3D.
