Considering that HDR and WCG are a subsection of "Display Devices" I think HFR and Creative Frame Interpolation would appropriately complement HDR and WCG. I don't think that software methods to achieve either of the two would be off-topic as you'll still be needing a display device to make use of such external solutions.
However, there is no reaction yet of any kind by the AVS decision makers regarding my request: http://www.avsforum.com/forum/43-for...s-hfr-cfi.html
Maybe you could join the request by voting with some "likes", consider it like a little petition on behalf of Frame Interpolation awareness.

I'd really like to see more HFR content(fix the problem at the source, right?), but i'm worried there's no point in doing that unless the rest of the population sees a huge improvement compared to what FI is already doing. HFR is quite a lot more hardware to replace than simply using FI on your display. is it worth the hassle? i think yes, but i have not heard many people confirm this observation
I've studied the reviews following the theatrical premieres of Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk,
shot in 'native' HFR and the reactions of many critics were negative regarding HFR impressions, lamenting again, they'd be seeing a "Soap Opera Effect".
As a result James Cameron took the bull by the horns, declaring the Avatar sequel will probably feature a mix of various camera speeds (with the prospect that real footage will be displayed in 24p...).
As long as we only had Peter Jackson's The Hobbit
in HFR there was a certain amount of uncertainty, whether some felt HFR distracting because it was combined with 'fake' CGI effects.
However, since Billy Lynn
(which is available in HFR on the UHD Blu-ray disc and can be watched in HFR with a capable 4K display device) that suspicion apparently no longer holds any water as some people are still lamenting about a "Soap Opera Effect".
(IMHO at least Billy Lynn
has revealed that Frame Interpolation can't be that unnatural if 'native' HFR reveals the same "Natural Motion Effect" some perceive as SOE)
