That UI looks like the “old” UI (I don’t notice any changes) it looks similar/the same that I have in US. HDR shows as it should for James May Japan.

Hmm. Try a full power reset (pull the power while the TV is on and showing a picture, wait a minute, then restart the TV).

Just saw a rental copy of Gemini man and well it was great PQ but the 60 FPS was to me disconcerting, thats the best way I can describe it! I kept thinking to myself while watching the movie how would this look at a normal frame rate? I guess the only way to see it that way would be regular blu ray? I have mixed feelings about higher Frames rates now and i don’t think this was the right movie for it? Looked too real and fake at times? Just weird lol! Funny it didn’t bother me with Billy Lynn’s Half time walk and that experimental short film on Netflix Meridian.
I guess sometimes directors intent is not always the way? But that‘s always subject to opinion.

Captain American Civil War in Dolby Vision looks pretty good on Disney+. There can be some searing bright lights. Better than expected and nice use of WCG as well.

HA, okay, searing might have been an exaggeration but I think it looks great. The tunnel chase sequence looked especially nice with all the flashing lights.

A friend of mine who is into movies but has no idea about fps or anything like that saw Gemini Man in the theater (in HFR although he was unaware of it) and hated it. He told me it sucked, the acting was bad, the plot was bad. I tried to convince him to give it another try on BD after watching both ways myself and being blown away at how much of a difference it made. He said all the same things I thought previously as well, that framerate can't make a movie better or worse, if the acting and plot is bad, it's just bad, period. I explained that I thought the same exact things and that he should be open-minded to just giving it a try. After watching in 24fps, he said it was definitely much better, seemed like a better movie, CGI Will Smith looked less fake, and he couldn't believe it actually made a difference and how much of a difference it made. He described it as "insane". Now obviously, ideally he would have been totally unaware of the framerates so there could be no placebo effect, but at least in this case, his preconceived notion was that it wouldn't make a difference, and yet the difference was still enough to overcome that and change his opinion.

From https://www.vulture.com/2019/10/how-...emini-man.html
Quote:
Niles told me of tests he’d done showing the same footage at different frame rates to viewers. “We would take a scene between a couple of actors, shoot it at 60 frames per second, or even 30 frames, and then shoot it at 24 and put it in front of audiences to see how they interpreted it,” he told me. “With 24 frames, people liked the actors better — they felt the performances were better.”
As hard as it may be to believe at first, and I would have definitely bet money that it wouldn't have made a difference at all before I tried it myself, there is a real effect, and it can have a huge impact on how much someone likes a movie.

I was reading about Gemini Man and negative impressions.
I didn't get it. Watched it and didn't think a stellar movie, but "good".
Then I realized that my Lumagen Pro was converting it automatically (?) to 24 (or 23.9...) fps.
I then forced it to 60 (59....) fps and rewatched sections of it with my kids.
Agree, terrible. It looked "fake" and not like a movie.
My kids both thought the higher frame rate made it look like a cheap home movie.
Interesting test.

Gemini Man UHD

@aron7awol and @Mike_WI , I did a similar "study" for our viewing here (I didn't elude to the HFR, and just played it as if we would for any other movie night); my teenage son right away said it looks like it was shot on GoPro and left the room after the first 20 minutes, and my wife kept saying it looked like a video game, especially the CGI scenes (I was thinking the same thing, but more along the lines of, "man, what a gamble to try this type of CGI and HFR at the same time).

Anyway, knowing that the acting would need to be "up to snuff" for HFR (after seeing Billy Lynn when it came out on UHD Blu), I must say that ol' Will did impress more than I expected, and despite what my wife thought about the look (and said the CGI isn't quite there yet, not knowing the issue was compounded by the HFR), she thought it was a decent flick. Then I let her in on what was different, and she wasn't interested in finding out if the CGI would work any better at the "normal" 24fps

I will say, explosions were way cool in UHD/HDR and HFR

Didn't Ang Lee Direct both Gemini Man and Billy Lynn? So that is two movies that they let him use HFR. I wonder if they will allow him to do more? Since many people don't like the HFR.

They have not removed the resolution information. If it's missing, it's a bug, so you should try various resets and do trouble-shooting.

I don't think the studios care. All they care about is $$$. If he chooses HFR and flops he just stops getting jobs or larger budgets.

Watched it tonight. Thought it looked fantastic 😂 movie wasnt toooo bad. The nighttime HDR was fantastically done as well, the higher white levels with the darks really popped. As far as I know, there aren't any more 60fps movies coming anytime soon so it'll be a non issue for a while again.

Right. I'm sorry to hear that, but personally I would not have dreamed of doing a factory reset on the off-chance it would fix it. I saw missing icons for HDR once, and a reboot brought them back, hence my suggestion

I did notice a new version of the Amazon Video app on my LG C8 recently. It now has a flat grey startup "splash screen", instead of the slightly graduated fadey one that had banding actually within the image which - before I realised this - always had me reaching for the controls to try and adjust things.

If it helps, version reports as installed on 18th Dec 2019, dated 16th Dec 2019, version 1.1.17. (click the "more" button in the LG Content Store to see the full info).

If you're not seeing resolution information it's a bug

I've seen this before, Amazon cannot and do not switch like everyone else in the world does. 99.9% of the time, it's because the user has selected to watch "Sneaky Pete" (which is not HDR) instead of the other title, "Sneaky Pete (4K UHD)" which is HDR.
Other than language soundtracks, these are all the same titles being streamed to us all from server farms all over the world, just because we may have slightly different apps and interfaces on our TVs, doesn't affect the files on Amazon's servers, which are either HDR or not HDR

I took pictures of the same titles that you did, for info:





Remember! Amazon make it as difficult as possible to find the HDR titles. You have to scroll down, down, down and find a category called "4K UHD" or similar, and then scroll across, one at a bloody time, to get to the tile of the programme that you want. I always add them to my Watchlist so that I only have to suffer this pain once.

But the main thing is that the easy-to-find versions are always the plain SDR versions, and it's very easy to select them by mistake and/or forget. All paths and marketing lead you to them, and away from the HDR versions.

ps. As you 2019 LGs it's completely possible they have screwed up and there is a bug in that version. I would use the email address to feed back to Amazon, from the LG Content Store page. That should get to the team of people responsible. If you're lucky.

I'm aware that there are different versions for HDR and SDR content. The pictures you took, that's the UI I used to have on my Amazon App, but it changed for the one on the photos I uploaded.

The photos I uploaded, are in fact the HDR versions, even if they don't have the HDR badge, they do trigger the HDR mode on my TV.

But I definitely agree with you about the nding the HDR content on Amazon.

Maybe they are just testing some things, and in the future it will show the HDR badges and the streaming resolution with the "new" UI.

Btw, thanks for the help for trying to resolve the situation!

Saludos

i updated the App in my LG B7A. HDR logo is displayed in both the old version and new version of the App. This is with the English versions of the UI and content; maybe the versions in Español are the problem?

You're welcome! It's taken Amazon 4 years of doing nothing to actually attempt to fix this ludicrous situation - if that is what they are trying to do!

I like @claw 's idea - could you try temporarily changing you're TV's language to English and see if that changes anything? You might have to change your country though, and I expect that would mean Amazon Prime Video wouldn't recognise your Amazon account, from the "wrong" country. (But you can still test on some free HDR stuff, like season 1 episode 1 of The Man in the High Castle)

I agree. It's beating a dead horse. It's like a Democrat trying to change them to Republican or vice versa. It's everyone's own preference and opinion if they like HFR. There is no right answer.
