Found a new TV under the tree? Do yourself a favor by disabling this option

Appreciated by some, the frame interpolation options are heresy for cinephiles.

It’s time to spread your science to your loved ones. If you’re one of the lucky ones who unboxed, or witnessed the unboxing, of a new TV over Christmas dinner, take a few minutes to set it up properly.

Disable the frame interpolation option

Sometimes called frame interpolation, sometimes “fluidity enhancement”, the result is the same: recent televisions are all capable of generating additional frames to increase the frame rate. The interest? Increased fluidity thanks to an artificial increase in the number of frames per second, which creates what is called a “soap opera effect” – named after these TV programs shot at 50 frames per second instead of the traditional 25 frames per second second.

If this kind of technology can have its interest in sports programs, it totally ruins the cinematographic experience wanted by the directors of the seventh art. Proof if it’s heresy: Tom Cruise and director Christopher McQuarrie (Impossible mission) had posted a video on social media in 2018 to explain in detail why frame interpolation is detrimental to the experience.

As the American actor explains, most recent televisions activate this option by default. The problem is that no manufacturer uses the same nomenclature to talk about this technology.

As this user reminds us on Twitter, here are the names of the options that you should look for on your television to be able to access the setting in question. If your TV brand is not listed here, just run the following query on your favorite search engine: “how to turn off motion smoothing on TV [marque de la TV] and follow the instructions.

Also take a moment to read the documentation that came with your TV. You might discover other options that improve (or degrade…) your viewing experience. Happy exploring!
