It is physically impossible to watch films on 60 Hz monitors.
You may think you've seen a film, but in fact you only saw a jittery representation of it.
Good thing this exists https://github.com/lvml/mpv-plugin-xrandr
As well as TVs.
Are all films recorded at 24fps?
Are some not recorded at 30fps?
And how do you find out what framerate the movie was recorded in?
Either way, it is probably best to watch on a CRT or in theaters.
most LCD panels themselves can't be driven at less than around 30 Hz since pixels will start shifting to their off states if left alone much longer than that.
Gsync has AFAIK always supported arbitrarily low refresh rates by doing intelligent self-refresh on the monitor module.
FreeSync didn't initially support rates lower than the panel minimum but introduced what AMD calls Low Framerate Compensation where the intelligent refresh is handled by the GPU side, but it requires that a displays max/min update ratio is at least 2.5x, e.g., 30-75 Hz, in order to go below the floor.
on the back of the DVD/Blu-ray case, it should tell you the framerate in tiny font. most films are finalized in 24fps, but the recordings might be higher if the need for editing.
>Are all films recorded at 24fps?
Recorded, no but for the vast majority the output is at 24Hz. Exotic framerates are usually a multiple of 24 anyway.
>Are some not recorded at 30fps?
Never heard of one. Maybe in the indie or short film scene.
>And how do you find out what framerate the movie was recorded in?
mediainfo | grep "Frame rate"
Some may do, I'm not sure.
Here's the output of xrandr for my cheap Samsung LCD-led that I bought a couple of years ago% xrandr
HDMI-0 connected 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 160mm x 90mm
1920x1080 60.00*+ 59.94 50.00 29.97 25.00 23.97 60.05 60.00 50.04
1440x900 74.98 59.89
1280x1024 75.02 60.02
1280x720 60.00 59.94 50.00
1024x768 75.03 70.07 60.00
800x600 75.00 72.19 60.32
640x480 75.00 72.81 59.94
theatrical films have been been 24 fps since the 1930s (when optically encoded sound started and that's the minimum studio could get away with that sounded OK on 35mm film) and were 18 before that.
99.9% of films have been 24 fps since then, with only a couple more recent things like The Hobbit (48 fps) being done experimentally.
low-fps will probably stay standard since high-fps costs much more to make and for various psychovisual reasons makes audiences more aware of FX mistakes and makes things look more like plays with crappy makeup and set-work.
I have a HP monitor that when connected via HDMI Windows would set it to 60Hz but actually runs everything but the desktop at 59.94 instead of 60, only a few applications can run at 60 most of them have two resolutions which are exactly the same, so in some games I get two 1920x1080 at 59Hz instead of one being at 59Hz and the other at 60Hz which Microsoft says it is perfectly normal but when connected using DVI this doesn't happens and I actually get 59.94 and 60.00 and I fucking hate it and I'm sure it causes stutter in some games like Battlefield Bad Company 2 that get set to RefreshRate=59.939999, while other games run better like Killing Floor which is set at 60.00.
>tfw you go home for the holidays and your parents have motion interpolation enabled for tv shows
>and were 18 before that.
Not technically true
A lot of films from the silent era had different framerates...some would even go as low as 16fps
A lot of them had variable framerates as well
>tfw G-sync/Freesync could finally play them in all their glory
>tfw my professor told us that the human eye can't see past 24fps
I THOUGHT THIS WAS A MEME
PEOPLE ACTUALLY BELIEVE THIS
>Suggested I use 24Hz
>Framerate severely drags
>Switch back to 60Hz
>Framerate is stable
24 fps is where you stop being able to distinguish individual frames, resulting in fluid transitions, aka a film.
Your professor most likely explained it this way, but you were too retarded to understand what he meant.
You have been watching inferior video
>What CR gets as masters is very often the same thing that TV channels in Japan get: HDCAM tapes. The resolution on these tapes is anamorphic 1440x1080, the same that basically all TV channels in Japan broadcast. The video is also hard telecined from 23.976 to 29.970 FPS, so an inverse telecine (shortened to IVTC from now on) is required to get the material back to the original progressive 23.976 FPS framerate.
