Since disabling SVM, my pictures looks SO much better. Gone is the ringing and bad edge enhancement. DVDs look so much more filmlike. However, the picture is a bit softer looking. Prior to disabling SVM, I had my sharpness at zero. While the sharpness pattern hasn't changed since getting rid of SVM, I tried increasing the sharpness just a little bit and I automatically noticed the "white outline" or noise being added to a black thin line in the center of the pattern. Now, despite the added white noise on the pattern, the black lines do get sharper. So, what I'm asking is whether having a little white noise is ok if it sharpens the black lines, or whether ANY increase in sharpness should be halted once the white noise is evident? Is any white tolerable? Or, is about compromise (similar to black vs. shadows while adjusting black level)?
