If they don't want people using things like Vivid Mode or Motion Smoothing, just eliminate those functionalities.
It wouldn't really be for Joe Six Pack and his Sunday football buddies; this mode would be geared more for enthusiasts like us here who value an accurate image but also prefer a one-piece television system (rather than a projector setup) to do serious film-watching on.

Be nice to just select a picture mode and know that it's pretty accurate for film content out of the box. I know if a certain manufacturer offered this kind of mode in their displays, it would be one of the first brands I'd look to when shopping screens (if I could afford the brand at my preferred screen size).

Uh....No! Thats the equivalent to putting chewed gum on a pipe to stop a leak.

I like Motion flow and I'll use this new setting but I'm not getting a new tv anytime soon. I like that ultra-real look but i get why some dont... to each his own. Its a nice idea.

That's not a full calibration either but personally speaking I always feel better setting these things for myself rather than copying and pasting someone else's figures, which is all rtings is at the end of the day.
Then what do you recommend.

Thank you to the OP. I don’t know anything about televisions, except for the things I have learned on this forum; therefore, I knew nothing about motion smoothing. I would usually do the opposite of anything that Tom Cruise tells me to do, but I read your posts and found out about your preference for turning it off. So, I found a handy-dandy YouTube video which told me how to turn off my new OLED C9’s Trumotion, and turned it off. Now, I will watch something and see if I can tell the difference.

You're welcome.

This subject had been brought up before I began the thread in a different one, but I wasn't aware of that one until after I posted my words about it; at any rate, I actually use SOME motion smoothing on my Samsung NU8000 because leaving it totally off results in film judder with 24fps sources (film) that I can't get used to on an LCD.

As it stands, I leave my Samsung's BLUR REDUCTION (which is supposed to be for 60fps content, but which I think somehow "stabilizes" fast motion at any frame rate so I use it) at "10" on the scale (from 0 to 10), as this is where it was set by default in Movie picture mode, and leave the JUDDER REDUCTION (which is supposed to affect 24fps content) at "5" (on the same scale; by default, this was set at "3" by Samsung in the Movie mode). Using this Judder Reduction setting, I'm getting smooth motion but just a tiny tiny HINT (if any at all) of the soap opera effect (SOE).

I still like the idea, but does anyone else see troubles ahead?
I'll still start with a pro calibration, so...

Filmmaker mode is nothing more than a renaming of movie mode/ cinema pro mode/ pure cinema etc. A preset that’s been around since at least a decade ago. So much ado about nothing

Here’s one possible positive to this film maker push, IF it gets more home casual viewers to get more interest or enthusiasm in home 4K movie viewing (OR purchases of 4K UHD), then the sales of 4K discs could increase (probably not drastically), but it would help delay the switch to all streaming or downloading.

Not saying that the inevitable switchover would be stopped, just put off a little longer.

Get the basics nailed down with S&M Benchmark then give it a full calibration with a meter and measuring software.

Neat. Any meters and software recommendations?

C6 HDR is the bare minimum for accurate reading

Why don't these Hollywood Big Shots do something about VUDU?

They apply sloppy loads of Motion Smoothing to all their video streams.

I wanted to check-out Wonder Woman in DV, but the fakey slickness killed it.

The worst thing about VUDU, is it's not even up the end user, you can't turn it off.
