Disable Motion Smoothing – Still Untitled: The Adam Savage Project – 9/18/18

We turn our radio voices on to kick off this week’s podcast, in which we discuss the recent Emmy awards, the challenge of maintaining creative control of something successful, and the many disappointing ways in which theatrical experiences are experience in the living rooms. Plus, two great segues!

  1. I like motion smoothing.

    Don’t make it the default, but don’t eliminate it entirely. What the director intended is not relevant to most of us. It’s not like any film buff is watching The Hobbit in 48fps.

  2. My internet is still too slow and limited (120 GB per month) for movie streaming to work well and the picture on satellite TV is mushy and awful. I’m building up a collection of Blu-ray disks and usually I watch the ones I buy many times, like the current Marvel series. Also, it makes it fun to pre-order and anticipate the movies that are coming and it’s an event when they arrive and I can watch them on the day of release. Next up: Solo on 3 Oct.

  3. With Awards its always difficult to know how many categories is the sweet spot. Too few and some never get the recognition they deserve, too many and it ends up like a first grade graduation with the award for taking part (there’s no better example of this than the Skytrax world airline awards with 71 winners across about 150 categories).

    My TV has what it calls “motion plus” its been turned off since day one about 8years ago.

  4. Now, however, a big issue is Home Audio Blu-ray mixes. Sadly, all Disney/Marvel films mixed in Atmos get squashed immensely for Home Audio. Almost as if, like with dark stereo DVD times, they think that anyone who is watching at home is really only listening with a Soundbar, no matter what decoder, receiver or speakers are attached. Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak had a more immersive sound mix than Thor: Ragnarok did.

  5. I buy all my films on Blu-ray, rip them immediately (high bitrate with commentaries and all DTS-HD/Dolby-TrueHD intact) and put that on my own Plex server, for the off chance I want to watch a movie when either not home, or the main TV is in use…

    (Sorry, really didn’t mean to post twice, thought I was editing the original when I just replied? Don’t really know how it happened.)

  6. Hey guys, Long time listener and viewer of all things Tested. One pet peeve. It is no longer a good segue is you say “great segue” …… every …. single ….. time. A challenge for Norm, Will and Adam, just let the segue roll. 🙂
