"Looks worse" is not exactly a scientific statement.
- In which way
worse? If you mean s-th like "less punchy", then ... yes, that could very well be. Standard/Custom does have "more punch". And now, guess why that is? (Start with thinking about for what technical reasons
that possibly can be.)
as for the adv.Contrast Enhancer
IF it had been active all the time in scene mode General i would have seen it when i measured the gamma cuve with my colormeter.
it isnt active because the gamma curve is flat.
I'm not sure in how far a gamma curve screwed by adaptive filtering can be seen in standard measuring. Means, this will depend on how the pictures for measuring are designed. What I would do if I had measuring equippment (I don't have) is: measure i.e. an IRE20 patch that is surrounded by IRE0 or IRE10, and measure an IRE20 patch that is surrounded by IRE80 or IRE100, and measure a screen that is all flat IRE20. My bet is that those readings of IRE20 will be noticeably different, when using picture mode standard or custom.

A common-sense approch without measuring equippment:
- All settings equal, (and BC + ACE both "off"), the picture modes "standard" and "cinema" look quite different
- keeping BC+ACE off for Standard, but setting them to low or medium for Cinema, "Cinema" becomes looking much more similar to "Standard".
The conclusion of this behaviour is quite obvious.
