I was just thinking that, since many 3D-capable televisions (like my Pana 60ST30) have a 120 Hz display mode for frame-sequential 3D, but many also do not have a good 24P input @ 120Hz display mode, is there a way to use a PC to:
1. "Fool" the TV into thinking it's getting a 3D image, thus engaging frame-sequential 120 Hz. mode.
2. Order frames that would otherwise be intended for separate Left/Right eye images such that they mimic 5:5 pulldown.
3. NOT wear 3D glasses, but get judder-free images.
I suppose one of the criteria would be that you would have to process the 24p frame-sequential material into something that mimicked 60 hz 3d material in storage, as this would be the only way to get past 3:2 pulldown being engaged and doubled (tv likely process frame-sequential 24p, which is essentially doubled to 48 hz with 3:2 pulldown engaged for a 120 Hz display refresh...otherwise, there'd be no way to alternate the cadence within the same sequence of L/R paired images). Caveats being I don't know how or if my tv handles 1080p60 material in frame-sequential 3d (don't see why it wouldn't be able to; from a processing standpoint it's less intensive than doing 3:2 pulldown for 24p material), and I don't know how you'd overcome the differences in gamma and brightness/contrast the tv engages for 3d mode. It'd be a neat exercise, tho...
Frustrating that televisions are being sold with a 120 Hz display refresh capability for 3D, and in less expensive plasma at least, you have sub-field drives operating 10 times a second, but they can't do 5:5 pulldown for 24p input material...no excuse for this, imho it's artificially holding back the tv to present a value proposition for more expensive sets. I don't mind a value proposition in features it takes extra hardware or intense development to achieve, but the artificial value spread among models irks me to no end.
