Cruise & McQuarrie Slam Motion Blurring

Here’s a video from Tom Cruise and director Christopher McQuarrie.  They take time out from filming Top Gun: Maverick, to warn people of the negative effects that many TVs come with, often preset.

Motion smoothing is the disliked ‘soap opera effect’ and known by various names depending on your TV’s manufacturer (TruMotion, MotionFlow, Motion Interpolation, ClearScan, Auto Motion Plus, AquoMotion, De-Judder & De-Blur).

The effect has its uses such as improving live sports broadcasts.  But for filmed content like movies, TV series, and so forth it renders content in a way that looks anything but cinematic with the removal of natural motion blur.
