Was it a mistake to assume that features like 4:4 pull down or frame interpolation (which is pretty much unusable due to the wavy artifacts and judder) would reduce motion blur? The 4:4 pull only seems to slightly alleviate the inherent jerkiness of 24fps, but definitely doesn't reduce the motion blur. Motion blur isn't often talked about or compared between projectors, so I'm asking you're guys opinions. Am I just sensitive to it? Would a different LCD projector perform better? Or would DLP projector like the BenQ 5000 be less susceptible (which I'd rather no go with because I still move around alot so placement flexibility is crucial)? Please let me know if you guys can offer any help.
I watched a couple movies and a tv show on my HD70 DLp yesterday, and then put in the same movies on the 6500 just to see how they compared. I of course didn't watch the full movies, just certain scenes and the motiomn blur was gone or significantly less on the 6500. I was paying attention to it during my movie watching as I wanted to see how the FI would look, and if it would get rid of motion blur. Try playing with the dvd playersettings. On my tv show the picture was real jerky with motion blur without FI on or 4:4 on, and much worse with them on. It turns out my 6500 doesn't like my A30 HD DVD player outputing up to 1080p 24, had to set it back to 1080p 60 for it to get rid of the blur and artifacts.
If you haven't noticed FI is enabled from the factory, which does give a weird motion blur artifact on some scenes, if it was prominent, I could see how people would develop headaches. I'd play around with it before giving up, you could also sit back further or reduce the screen picture to see if it makes any difference. When I got my first pj I got headaches and almost dizzy from my eyes moving around the screen, now I never have a problem, so I guess I got used to watching on the big screen, or my mind started ignoring problems I was seeing.
