They were disappointed with the Sony's motion resolution performance. Isn't everyone always saying Sony projectors are typically one of the better performers at motion resolution (e.g. better than JVC)?
Do you guys use any motion resolution enhancement settings, frame interpolation/black frame insertion or whatever, on your Sony?
I like better motion resolution, but not at the expense of having to introduce anything like the dreaded Soap Opera effect.
First I have to say that I normally
use the motionflow on low ( and IMO it do not give or look like " the dreaded Soap Opera effect" - actully it stiill have "film look" but its sharper and more natural looking then without ) , but even if I turn motionflow off
, I do not recognize the movement problems he mentions in the test, I must also say that I absolutely do not find or see either HW50 or vw95 be better than the 1000ES in the resolution / motion sharpness!? ('ve Had / seen all three set up in my own cinema)
Whereas me curiously well see an even better / higher? sharpness / resolution with "Film Projection" enabled (as opposed to what David apparently saw), but on the other hand, there is a marked decrease in light output due to dark frame insertion.
The difference in perception, we seem to have, on motion sharpness / resolution of 1000ES must either be me who can not see it !? (But it does not explain why he so can see HW50 work better and I not !??) - Or maybe it later changed the 1000ES handling practices, through subsequent software versions / corrections?
