1. Nice interview, glad to see your getting some dues out there.. I posted there these two questions, not sure in which place you’d want to reply (if you have the time)

    My question would be if “the average user can tell the difference between 48 and 60, but probably can’t tell the difference between 60 and 240..” Why do you feel it needs to go beyond 60 then?

    Also, what do you think will have to happen to get rid of that ’10 minute, im watching this in fast forward’ feeling? If I convert a 22 minute show and half the time I’m getting used to it, it detracts from the experience, more so then if I were to convert a nice 2 hour long movie and 90% of it I’m used to it.

    @Jason: These are great questions.

    1) I don’t think it needs to go beyond 60fps for a long time, but it’s like when DVDs came out it was hard to imagine anything more perfect, we were so used to the unstable and damaged images on VHS that DVD seemed like the ultimate image, but now DVDs look really bad in comparison to blu-rays. I remember thinking Nintendo 64 had the ultimate graphics and now it looks so bad. So 60fps looks great now and will for a long time, but if we adopt that framerate maybe in another 5-10 years we will see the difference between 60 and 240, once we are used to 60.

    2) I think that effect is unavoidable at first, but it only happens a few times before it starts to look normal. For me now, it’s 24fps content that looks strange like a slideshow, and 60fps looks normal.
