Which 3D plamas do motion smoothing (frame interpolation)?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am looking around at the new plasma TVs, and would like to upgrade

It would be used for some movies and a lot of gaming...

I hate the motion smoothing effect for most movies (non-CGI) - however, I really want the effect for video games... so I was just wondering which of the 3D plasmas do frame interpolation (motion smoothing) ? I heard the new Panasonics do- anyone know if the effect is as strong as the LCD tvs? thanks smile.gif

Yes the 2012 Panasonic plasma 3D HDTVs have a motion smoothing option that can be set to OFF, WEAK, MEDIUM, or STRONG.
So you can turn it OFF for no frame interpolation like with 24fps movies.
Or you can increase the setting to get more of a video/soap-opera effect as desired, it can be made quite strong if you want. I prefer it not too strong so use weak or medium.

I don't believe the Samsung plasmas have a frame interpolation feature at all.

oh, one more question- does the panasonic motion smoother work with all inputs and programming? on their website it says it works with 24p film sources

I believe that is incorrect has an effect on motion smoothing on regular cable programming on my 2011 ST30.

I don't know how the motion smoothing function compares between 2012 and 2011.
But the 2012 models give a very strong effect even on the Medium setting from what I've seen.
I have tried it on both 24p sources as well as 60hz sources (cable TV channels) and it worked on all of them.
