I've looked high and low and every thread on 24p is about the 3:2 pull, 5:5 pull, etc. I enjoy the buttery smooth effect, but i also know that 120hz projectors in 1080p are few and far between (and expensive), working on a 3D PC setup with the dual projectors.
So in short, is a projector that is true 24p going to provide a smooth image and a better experience than a 120hz screen that is creating 5 frames between each frame? Will movies appear jumpy / jagged at 24p or does the jumpiness only come from 60hz screens showing 24p video.
I'm curious, what kind of 3d setup are you going with? a passive? which projectors?
I guess that's a throwback to the idea that video production was/is "cheap" relative to film. Since few (or none) of us have film projectors at home, shouldn't video look better than film when viewed in a video format?
This is a popular debating topic at AVS. I for one sure think it does.
"Soap opera effect" is a dog-whistle shibboleth thrown out to rally the cinema faithful and distract viewers from the obvious fact that video-on-video is cleaner, sharper and more lifelike than Thomas Edison-era 24-frame celluloid converted to video. SOE detractors often are the same crowd that pines for the scratches, rumble, wow and noise from the vinyl LP era.
