Between a dangerous scene and a dangerous scene, Tom Cruise has issued a small video quite unusual on Twitter. It's unusual because he does not talk about his next movie or promotes the last. What it does is explain what we should all turn off the function Motion Smoothing From our TV.
Thomas Cruz and Writer's Top Gun: Maverick and Mission Impossible: Fallout, Chris McCurkary, neglected on the video something that many people go unnoticed, and that the factory settings of televisions are not always ideal. Often manufacturers include features designed to make the TV look great in the store, but they are a disaster for other content.

One of these functions is the so-called motion interpolation or Motion Smoothing. Its objective is to make the image sharper in scenes in which the movement is so fast that the objects are blurred as in sports or action movies. Unfortunately, and as the good Tom says, it has a side effect, and this is that the scene with which active effect is to be recorded with a high-speed camera, not a movie camera. It is sometimes referred to as "Soap Opera" because the movie with that feature is more like an episode of an old BBC television series as an overproduction.
The function is not called the same on all TVs. For example, it is called tromotion. In Sony it is called MotionFlow, in Toshiba ClearFire TVs, and in Samsung Auto Motion Plus.
It is called it all what you call it, disapling it is just a matter of entering the image settings and walks through the options until you get the right one. If, in spite of everything you do not find, look for the phrase "Turn off motion smoothing" followed by the brand of your TV, it will give you the clue you need to find it.
