Also, if cadence detection was a strong point of the video processing in the display, it shouldn't matter if the source material is coming in at 24p, the display should be able to do it with any source regardless of the refresh rate.
Hate is way to strong of a word for me to use.
I don't enjoy seeing the blur of pixels changing state even in the top rated JVC front projectors. After you don't see the degradation then its too easy to see!
Its a scientific fact that twenty-four frames a second is inadequate to recreate believable fast motion without assistance. Was it was selected in the 1920's? Would there be objection even if filmmakers were to increase the frame rate? I think so!
I say down with blur and jerkiness artifacts in motion pictures. Just because we are used to seeing it, does not make it right. Education take time so patience is required. But not to worry as the long term outcome is guaranteed as an many player (read Panasonic) and display manufactures strive for 1080 lines of clarity in every frame.
I saw the original Godfather and The Robe on blu-ray using my BD-35 set to 24p, then being upsampled to 120Hz in the display. It was stunning seeing such color, detail and all the 1080 resolution. The many positive attributes of the film-look were still intact and made for one thrilling viewing experience.
Technically speaking, the pixel-perfect motion processing allowed the high ANSI contrast to be maintained, providing a natural 3D effect especially during motion.
