On the topic of motion: I’ve had the 55 A9G for about 4 months now and didn’t really bother to touch the motion settings from the stock Custom settings. I would love improved motion, but generally despise the SOE and the artifacts it brings. But all this Plasma and motion talk had me trying different things with the motion settings.
Basically, Motionflow seems to operate very differently with Cinemotion set to off. With Cinemotion set to Auto I get a very pronounced SOE effect with Motionflow set above Min, and setting it at 2 or to Max introduces all kinds of visual artifacts.
But with Cinemotion set to Off, I find Motionflow much more effective, much more natural looking, and really haven’t noticed any visual artifacts even with a setting of 2 or even at Max. I’ve been running Motionflow at 1 with Cinemotion off the past couple of days, and really don’t see any pronounced SOE with that combo, and it definitely improves motion. I ran it at 2 for a couple of flicks, and while it works well, you lose that 24p look.
Anyway, just looking to compare notes and get some insight from the more technically informed members on this topic.
