HFR movies

Post by Renegadex » Sat Dec 22, 2012 4:07 pm

So I got to see The Hobbit movie in HFR (doubled-frame-rate) 3D, last night. After a false start where the 3-D was entirely messed up (which they fixed, and we all got free movie passes!), and the effect where the movie looks like it's running in fast-forward, I really liked the HFR enhancement!

I can see why people think it's worse than the traditional 24 fps, though. It's similar to the change from analog records and vacuum tubes to solid-state amps and digitally sampled music on CDs. Whatever you're already used to always seems better.

Just like UT 99. :D
