. I pulled up the "Hell or High Water" from the NetFlix. I'm on OLED65E6 Korean firmware.
I use build in NetFlix app. I don't see any reason to even try external NetFix players. Build in app has everything I need from raw 24fps to 4K and Dolby Vision HDR.
Here is my observation:
Opening scene like you pointed out is probably extreme test for OLED. A lot of vertical contrasted lines, posts, black windows on white walls. Speed of panning camera is just perfect to amplify the issue on OLED.
1. All off RC and TM - very strong pulsing movement, frames looking like 1/4" apart. A lot stronger then LCD or theatre.
2. RC on and TM off - It actually looks worse in this scene. Frame rate is more synchronized but you almost see through some objects to the previous frame. Walking lady gets hollow between frames.
3. RC greyed out TM ON DJ=2, DB=10 - Frames are not going back and fourth but still strong separation. Can't compare to the theatre but I think at this point is still below.
4. RC greyed out TM ON DJ=3, DB=10 - This looks like good LCD or cinema. Hard to tell. Last time I went to see movie it was shown on DLP projector with similar effect. Blacks were bright grey and screen lacking details. My whole family was disappointed
5. RC greyed out TM ON DJ=4, DB=10 - My standard setting. I think it looks better then cinema at this level. 24fps is still very visible. Elements of the screen like windows and posts don't have this jerky movement but still advance as 24fps.
6. RC greyed out TM ON DJ=10, DB=10 Now this is a real deal, 120fps of joy. Fluid motion, 24fps is completely eliminated. The whole scene is flowing like reflection in slow turning mirror. Probably too much for watching movies. No gross artifacts. You really have to look hard to find something but it's more of shadow under the car slightly distorted rather then splash of white or black. The scene is moving too slow and does not have enough rapidly changing, shaking elements like helicopter blades etc. to produce real issue artifacts a splash of white or black.
Next I loaded Stranger Things Ep. 2. If I got it correctly then the panning scene is at 5:45 after the title. This is much shorter and is has less critical contrasted elements. I was thinking that maybe the trees and pattern of leaves is showing some frame tearing but nothing. I didn't repeat all test but the results were better since the scene had less contrasted vertical elements. Zero artifacts at DJ=4, DB=10 and nothing noticeable at DJ=10, DB=10.
I think you are wright. There is something weird with OLED and slower frame rates. All OLED demo flicks are perfect smooth slow motion shot at 50 or 60 fps. Amazing colours, infinite contrast and pure gorgeous image specially when viewed in HDR. Now going back to old style 24fps it needs motion fix (frame interpolation) just to get to the point where cinemas were 50 years ago
I don't have issue with this. Current firmware with E6 series can get the job done and go beyond.
If there is something going on with raw 24fps then it would support the theory of some people preferring conversion to 60fps with 3:2 pull down.
