Just about theonly bad thing you could say about film today is that its
temporal resolution is so poor. This manifests itself particularly well in
the TV domain in shape of aliasing, apart from the problem with the poor
temporal portrayal to begin with.

Yes, the idea is to get twice as many frames per time period as before. Also
the exposed area would be wider allowing better use as a "film for video
format". As for the issue with 16mm would this be a real brainer to
overcome? As film has become so much better since these formats where
adopted is it not time that it was used to keep the media alive? This is
certainly not the first time this idea was put forward, now it could be done
as well - the need is there.

Dont you think IMAX looks better?

Its motion portrayal and aliasing issues here. Any one have idea how we
perceive grain structures at higher frame rates? My guess is it will just
get better.

Mike Reichel (interlace sucks)
