the extra gimmicks available, to allow the DLP do its work best and stay purer to the source.
But really, there is no wisdom behind the existing standard.
It's just a relic of the times when the industry arbitrarily agreed on that framerate, in order to cater for the projectionists of the time.
I'd prefer it if the film industry moved ahead and employed a 60 frames as the standard rate.
I believe they should focus more on that, instead of the HDR/HLG route they've chosen.
It's an easier thing to push, I understand..
Also, makes for a great marketing pitch to convince ppl buy newer gear.
Whereas a 60Hz standard would mean that they (the film industry) would need to empty their
pockets to do the transition.
Obviously, they wouldn't like that very much.
We, the consumers, already have the gear to display 60Hz, so you can see what's the deal here..
And then, it'd be a free choice for a the director as to which method of filming he prefers.
But that'd entail that they're be both readily supported (60Hz and 24Hz framerates), which isn't the case yet...
