Here is what I am thought I knew:


Motion Enhancer -- adds additional frames to smooth out motion

Cinemotion -- performs 2:3 pulldown


However, if you are playing a Blu-ray source at 24 frames a second, you wouldn't need to perform a 2:3 pulldown, so Cinemotion shouldn't have any effect right?


However, on my XBR7, Cinemotion does smooth out motion even with a 24 frame source. So then, what then is exactly is the different between Motion Enhancer and Cinemotion?

In some of the Sony owners manuals that I've looked at - even for some of the higher end CRT sets, there were 3 levels of cinemotion. Off, Level 1 - does 2:3 pulldown only, Level 2 - does 2:3 pulldown as well as motion enhancement.


Now, I know that on Sony's newer 120Hz sets, they use the term "Motionflow". So, I am also curious how Sony defines this.


When you do into the setup menus, are there seperate settings for CineMotion and Motion Flow? Does CineMotion still have the same three settings as in the older sets?

On my XBR7, the settings are:


Motion Enhancer: Standard or High

Cinemotion: Auto1 and Auto2

Cinemotion most likely takes 24p content and inserts frames to make it 30fps.

Hmmm... you may be on to something here, although I would question why one would want to convert from 24 to 30 fps, if your display can output 24 fps native.

this is a needed discussion IMO. Right when I think I'm on top of this issue, I get a bucket of curveballs.


Calling Sony Super Techs....
