Everyone is digging Tom Cruise’s PSA about motion smoothing

Actor Tom Cruise left and director Chris McQuarrie

The motion smoothing TV setting aims to sharpen images by inserting addition frames to reduce motion blur - and while that might sound good, what it actually results in is a soap-opera-looking effect with images that appear to be slightly sped-up or distractingly televisual.

The problem with motion smoothing is that it creates frames that aren't in the original picture. "When a movie looks better on a smartphone, how is that a feature and not a bug?"

Still, one might argue that because sports look just fine without it, and the setting has the effect of making most movies and TV shows look like they were shot on your iPhone, it should be kept off - at least as a default. While McQuarrie wanted to amplify the conversation about motion smoothing, he told CNET he doesn't want to come across as a film snob or taking a shot at the feature.

Cruise added that filmmakers are working with manufacturers to adjust how motion smoothing is activated on televisions.

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 unusual".

Taking a break from filming the new Top Gun film, he appeared alongside director Christopher McQuarrie, who pleads with viewers to do a quick internet search and find out how to change the correct settings. This is decidedly not what the filmmaker intended, and Cruise and McQuarrie want to make sure it doesn't impact any home viewings of Mission: Impossible - Fallout on Blu-ray. In the video, they suggest googling "turn off motion smoothing [your brand of TV here]". The film is being rebooted for television, but Cruise won't be part of it. Cruise is also gearing up to star in the film Luna Park.
