Hi,
I have an old TV. Pre motion smoothing technology. I am thinking of buying a new one, but I really want the pronounced frame insertion, motion smoothing effect.
Basically, I'm very odd in that I love the 'soap opera' effect. I like the crisp, blur free video look. The thought of playing blu rays or streaming , and seeing movies with a video crisp look is a real attraction.
I visited a few stores, and had demos on a few TV's. One helpful store set up two TV's, turned motion smoothing to max on one and none on the other to compare. I could't see any difference. They were Sony tv's.
I was told that because so many people hated the motion smoothing effect, the manufacturers toned it right down, so even on max setting, it's barely noticeable.
I was very disappointed.
I keep reading how people hate the effect so much that they turn it off. so it must exist on some tv sets. I want to turn it on.
I realise that sharpness is also down to resolution, HD, 4K, (my current TV is HD), but it's the frame insertion that intrigues me.
My question is, does anyone know of a TV, that will deliver this soap opera effect?
I'm anticipating a response along the lines of, every TV now days has this technology built in, so buy anything. But my experience of demo's is that what I've seen isn't impressing me.
I'd even be open to the notion of buying an older discontinued TV if it has the strong motion smoothing on it.
Any recommendations?
I want Blade Runner to look like an episode of Days of our Lives.
Weird I know, but that's me.
I blame the Hobbit. I went to see this in 48FPS and was totally blown away at how good it looked. Everything I watch subsequently, looks low quality, blurry, grainy.
I know TV s aren't showing content filmed in 48FPS, they insert frames by averaging the neighbouring two, and thus reduce motion blur. I saw an online clip of Avatar, where someone artificially created a 6OFPS version and it looks amazing. So TV 's can in theory, do it fairly well.

The tru-motion smoothing on LG'S OLED sets is instantly noticeable. I just set up the replacement set, à B7, for my EG9600 and I could instantly see that motion smoothing was on when I watched some of GOTG: Vol 2. It is off now.

Thanks for the tip. Oled TVs are really expensive, I may have to investigate my options.
