I still remember the first time my parents bought a high-end flat-screen TV in the mid-2000s.
I was delighted to watch movies on a television that was manufactured in the last 10 years, but to quickly realize that the 1080p sharp and so much of the TV bought featured moving smoothing.
Motor smoothing, more commonly known as interpolation, results in a terrible look Soap operative effect, & quot; Regardless of the content you are watching. Most modern televisions include some form of motion smoothing visual effect that can be turned off, although in the case of my parents, this is not an option.
In a new 90-second PSA, Tom Cruise and Mission: Impossible – Fallout Director Christopher McCurarie – who joined forces to film Top Gun: Maverick – Discuss the "bad side" of motion smoothing, stating that it feels like looking like they are "shot on high-speed video rather than film."

Cruise goes on to complain that most modern televisions come with this feature turned out of the box and it is often difficult to disable. McQuarrie then suggests television owners should Google a way to switch off the setting off.
Although serious Cruz and McQuarrie are taking the current state of motion smoothing is unimaginably amusing, the feature really looks ridiculous and is a modern TV show that no longer exists. Interpolation, which creates frames that are not featured in the video source, really only makes sense when watching sports.
Motor smoothing is often compared to 60 FPS video, which is Peter Jackson's The hobbit Trilogy fervently and unfortunately was posted in the effect typically makes movies look cheap by the addition of incorrect information.
Both Cruise and McQuarrie released the movement smooth PSA today because Mission: Impossible – Fallout Is now available on Blu-ray.
