I'm curious what people think about the current framerate standard in movies. Here in the U.S., it's been 24fps for probably 100 years now. I very rarely go to the theater anymore. My eyes must be very sensitive, because I really can't stand the "dreamy" feel that films have in theaters, because of the slow 24fps. If the camera pans left/right too fast, I notice the frames seem to stutter and jerk. It doesn't look smooth or realistic to me!
This has been becoming an increasing problem with newer, action-packed movies, with LOTS of fast action. These scenes sometimes seem to stutter.
In the past, I read several articles about the future of Cinema about Maxivision 48
I really think 48fps could help out to make movies more realistic. So...Why is it the film industry
doesn't want to get their ass in gear, and support higher framerates? If they don't act fast, I feel more and more people will stay at home to watch movies, on their HDTV! Even (DV) digital video on consumer camcorders
are stuck with a slow, paltry, 24fps. With Digital Video, they could've easily bumped up the speed to 48fps for consumers. Sure it would take more storage space, but tapes/hard drives/compression, is getting bigger and better everyday!
Will we ever see the light of day for an increase in framerate AND resolution
on the big screen and TV?
