This is the one thing that bothers me most when watching my new Samsung a900b. Even with 48 fps FI, the motion judder is, well, just very distracting.

On my Madrigal MP9 CRT, this was a very slight problem at worst.

No wonder 120 FI is so popular with so many.

I don't get why anyone would want to put up with it. In real life, healthy people do not appear to have some terrible neurological disease and window blinds do not jitter uncontrollably.

Or, maybe that was the director's intent
;-).

I guess a $6k+ processor is in my future.

I would like to see an anti-judder tech that detects only camera movement and smooths that, but leaves character movement alone.

What do you think? Is that possible?

Well, I sometimes love FI. I had been wondering why certain clips at the stores looked so real (the dreaded soap look), like I've seen a U-571 clip in the sub that seems to show up in many demos, that I really like with 120Hz FI on. It looks so immediate and real. I recently bought a 55" Samsung LED and I have been able to play with the FI settings. I think I really like it on when certain genres are playing. I really seem to like it with sci-fi, most action, and horror and of course "live" TV and animation. I don't like it with more "serious" fare, like drama, "period" pieces, comedies and just when it doesn't seem to visually suit the piece. I have an Epson projector right now and sometimes think I miss it when I'm watching, so yesterday, I ordered a new JVC HD550 which has FI.

Hmm, but I also saw Dark Knight then on a JVC HD350 (they didn't have the 550 in stock) and didn't mind no FI at all. It was gorgeous the way it was. I guess time will tell.

I have a Sanyo Z3000 projector and I believe its FI processor works exactly that way. I have been told by a source that I trust that the "low" FI setting just interpolates pans. The Medium and Hi settings work on progressively smaller areas of the image.

Fry's has a ton of new model tv's set up. I spent a bit of time with a 55" led unit that had fi on low and it was difficult to tell it was using fi. No soap affect, just clear on pans and motion. We looked at another display and when the characters were running the fi made their movements look a little "puppety". So, even on tv's, the tech is hit and miss.
