It eliminates the option to engage HDR 10 and Dolby Vision really?

Whaaa? Does that imply that filmmakers don't consider HDR to be a part of their intended vision?

Filmmaker Mode overrides the HDR image, and changes it to a more theatrical look. The first thing you'll notice is that it's darker.

No. All I'm saying is that I just don't like the way it look. Some people like it, and some don't. It's based on personal preference. To me, it makes the picture too dull.

The first part just doesn't sound right to me either. What would make sense to me is if turning on filmmaker mode engages BFI (because BFI deals with motion blur like a film projector does, not with interpolation), which would cause a very noticeable reduction in brightness. Theoretically this could be easily counterbalanced by upping the backlight, getting you back to the same brightness you had before.

Are you sure you're not just seeing the results of BFI getting turned on? That causes a big drop in brightness, and if it's an OLED or other brightness-challenged display, it could be so bad you can't compensate for it.

It's a possibility. I don't like to make drastic changes to my video settings, especially with the HDR and Dolby Vision, which I leave all of the additional enhancements turned off.

i love the way people are blaming motion blur on everything except the actual cause. Sample and hold technology on LCD based screens.

You all killed plasma because you wanted your screen to be the size of a house with brightness that burns your eyeballs.

You made your bed....

HDR is an effect ive never witnessed in any Cinema in the past 35 years.

Resolution is a small part of the video image when it comes to overall display quality, there are so many other more important factors to consider when picking a display.

Here is a quote from Joe Kane who wrote a article about Filmmaker Mode on page 22 in the March/April 2023 Widescreen review magazine article.

quote

ďBut then Iím watching 1080p content on an 80 inch wide screen with my DLP-based projector and like it far better than the same content in 2160p on a 75 inch diagonal LCD set.Ē

Thatís a shame, hundreds of cinemas in North America have high dynamic range.

Yes, Commercial Cinemas use HDR. Dolby Cinema uses Dolby Vision HDR. It is my understanding from doing some research that only Dolby Cinema and IMAX offer movies in true HDR. This is because currently two 4K Christie projectors are required to show movies in HDR. Two Christie projectors also offer more brightness and native 24fps for each eye in both 2D and 3D (48fps 3D sources equals left eye 24fps and right eye 24fps). A single DLP projector is required to triple flash to 144fps for flicker free 3D 48fps sources. 48 nits for SDR and 108 nits HDR for Dolby Cinema.

Maybe one day in the future single projector DLP and single projector LCOS for the commercial Cinema will be bright enough for HDR.

Meanwhile my local theater has white ceiling tiles and visible damage and a seam on the screen surface.

My home theater is better and I usually have no problem waiting for the discs so I don't go to my local theater often. I used to make the trek to an IMAX place that's about 70 miles away but I don't think I've done that since the original Avatar was in theaters.
