Hippybear explains HFR Movies

The Optic Nerve of it allThe Optic Nerve of it all by Atomic Mutant Flea Circus (cc by)

MeFi member hippybear explains how High Frame Rate (HFR) movies work in painstaking detail, and why some HFR movies look "weird" to us:

Because it looks TOO real. We're used to movies, even really great ones, having a veneer of "this is fake, this is a thing you are watching that was filmed". The colors, the lighting, the makeup, the flaws in the set... These are all things which, in 24fps, wash out a little, and our brain fills in the gaps, and we get a sense of reality because of what is missing.
