Buffalo Bob used to show movies shot at 16fps, more or less, at 24fps, and kids watched them on 30i screens. The howls of the Peanut Gallery added to the effect.And his decision backfired. A lot of people didn't like the image "look" at 48fps. There's a reason also why Canon delivered its Sumire Prime lenses.
Human eye is the same it was in 1920 and probably will be the same in 2120. Evolution needs some more time to change things.
He also multiplied a short book in three whole movies, but that's another story... even if it's still an evidence about trying to aim to the wrong result just because you think you can.
What percentage of folks who objected to 48fps would have reacted that way if no one had told them it was shot at 48fps? Was it a true 48fps, or some NTSC-like approximation?
I’ve never seen a 24fps movie projected without repeated frames. That was abandoned so rapidly, it must have looked really bad. I guess I see Blu-Ray movies at 24fps on my 120/sec. refresh rate TV screen.
I guess we will have 8K TVs before the human eye has evolved to resolve a 4K picture viewed from ten feet on a screen of a reasonable size.
