Hence the nickname for this infamous technology: the soap opera effect.

Motion smoothing, also known as the "soap opera effect", involves adding artificial frames into footage to remove the motion blur of fast-moving objects. But Tom Cruise in his fighter pilot duds, along with his Mission: Impossible - Fallout director and Top Gun: Maverick co-writer Christopher McQuarrie, have an important message for you about the worst setting on your TV and how to turn it off - a message which they filmed on the new Top Gun set. Remember when you saw The Hobbit in theaters and were confounded by the faster frame rate Peter Jackson employed?

The unfortunate side effect is that it makes most movies look like they were shot on high-speed video rather than film.

The main problem, according to Cruise and McQuarrie, is that oftentimes these settings aren't at all obvious to adjust.

Mr McQuarrie, who directed the most recent Mission Impossible film, said in the meantime people should search "Turn off motion smoothing [your TV brand here]".

As McQuarrie puts it, "without a side-by-side comparison, many people can't quite put their finger on why the movie they're watching looks odd".

In the video posted on Tuesday, Mr Cruise added: "Filmmakers are working with manufacturers to change the way video interpolation is activated on your television, giving you easier access and greater choice on when to use this feature".

"Many of you have seen your work appear on television screens looking different from the way you actually finished it", says the letter.
