Everyone is digging Tom Cruise’s PSA about motion smoothing
05 December 2018, 10:13 | Elsie Buchanan
Something is keeping movie star Tom Cruise up at night: motion smoothing.
Motion smoothing, or interpolation, is a technique that artificially adds additional frames to the moving image in order to prevent blurring - most effective when watching sport.
Sometimes known as the "soap opera effect", McQuarrie acknowledged that many people notice something "strange" about the film they're watching with the feature enabled but few can identify the issue specifically without a side-by-side comparison.
The PSA was filmed by the pair on set their upcoming collaboration, Top Gun: Maverick.
Cruise's video was inspired by the Mission: Impossible - Fallout home release (it became available on DVD, Blu-ray, and Ultra HD Blu-ray Tuesday).
The nation honors George H.W. Bush
He died in Texas, his home state, late Friday at the age of 94 after several years of failing health. An invitation-only funeral service is set for Wednesday at Washington National Cathedral.
If you haven't fiddled around with the settings on your TV, there's a good chance motion smoothing is switched on by default.
Cruise and McQuarrie acknowledge that it can be hard to navigate how to change the setting, so they're working with manufacturers to make it easier out of the gate.
However, Cruise warned that the feature has an "unfortunate side-effect", which is to make "most movies look like they were shot on high-speed video rather than film".
The PSA video was welcomed with thanks and appreciation from home movie-watchers and filmmakers everywhere. But until then, Cruise and McQuarrie say, Google how to turn of "motion smoothing" on whatever brand of TV you have.
