Film & TV makers debut new feature to end the “soap opera effect” scourge

Quote:
A group of filmmakers, distributors, and electronics manufacturers called the UHD Alliance has announced a new viewing mode coming to future TVs that will, among other things, disable the controversial motion smoothing effect that fakes a higher frame rate when showing regular TV shows and movies.

This so-called filmmaker mode would never be needed if they just used better defaults to begin with.


The soap opera effect scourge is caused by the default settings that the TV ships with. One of the articles about this said that 85% of people never change their TV settings out of the box.


And most TVs already have Cinema modes which no one ever uses so what difference would this make. I see they are talking about a dedicated remote button or even automatically changing based on metadata which I guess would help. But again this would not be needed if the TV makers just follow their own advice to begin with.

Media: LG 88" 8K OLED Z9 / Denon AVR-X8500H 7.1.4 / Oppo UDP-203 / Nvidia SHIELD (2017) / Apple TV 4K / Sony 4K FMP-X10 / Gaming PC (Threadripper 1950X / 2x GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SLI) / PlayStation 4 Pro with PS VR / PlayStation (original)
Family: Sony 85" 4K XBR-85X900F / Denon AVR-X3400H 5.1 / Nvidia SHIELD (2017) / Apple TV 4K / C64 Mini - Game: LG 77" 4K OLED C8 / Denon AVR-X3400H 5.1 / Nvidia SHIELD (2017) / Apple TV 4K
