Gt30 is pretty damn smooth at 60hz though!
Wow, some great discussion.
Well watch Thor tonight and my "shoot from the hip" unscientific theory is PS3 set to 24P, VT30 set to 96hz is inferior to setting the VT30 to 60Hz... still with 24P engaged on the PS3. Just way too much judder. It seems like there's a threshold where everything is fine with movement. But once the motion on screen exceeds that mark it just falls apart as the image "hick-ups" across the screen.
In 60Hz the effect is greatly reduced and more pleasing to watch. All reason points to 96Hz being superior but to me, the laymen, it certainly is not.

Well, I can say one thing, I'm damn impressed with the GT30 on 60hz 24p in and 1080p/24 from the oppo. It's looks phenomenal, actually better than cinema smooth.
I just finished watching Casino Royale with PS3 outputting 24hz and my GT30 @48hz and since I updated to the 2.1 patch and calibrated the settings on THX I could hardly notice any strobing/flicker in this mode.I played fine to me without any judder or hitching as well.
I wonder if the 2.1 patch helped smooth things out because prior to the patch I watched Employee of The Month and I could easily see the flicker or unless my eyes have become adjusted to this mode.
Could anyone who updated to 2.1 watch a film in 48hz and has his tv settings adjusted to their room environment tell if they can see the strobing/flicker.
Really that I just couldn't tell that it was doing anything. The 72hz on the LG was much smoother overall. Sometimes, in rare instances it would give SOE, which I don't like. But it wasn't bad at all like you see on LCD's. I know it's irrelevant but the best way to see the difference between the 72hz on LG and 96Hz on Samsung is to watch the scrolling credits at the end of a film. The difference in smoothness can be verified by doing this.
This being said, I send 24p to my D7000 and disable Cinema Smooth to use 3:2 pulldown. The Sammy does it well I think. This seems to actually be smoother to me than 96hz on. I'm not sure why. The overall better PQ, color and blacks on The Sammy so totally overwhelms the Better 24p processing (at least IMO) on the LG it's really mute. I did enjoy it on the LG though. Pretty much blew my mind how well it worked.
I see plenty of flicker in 48hz mode.
It's gets a bit complicated though when you start getting into it. Just because you have the video hardware on the PS3 set to 60hz (FPS) doesn't mean the processing power in the PS3 can always keep up. Some graphics intense games in some scenes may not be able to hit 60FPS all the time. But there will be other times where the system is capable of producing much more than 60FPS but it'll be limited to 60hz video setting. On average I bet the PS3 frames rates are for sure higher than 24FPS (Hz). Like I said I wouldn't limit it down to 24hz (FPS).
Most Blu-ray movies are created at 24FPS, your video games are not. They will be whatever the hardware/software is capable of rendering. Try not to confuse the two together. For gaming 96hz mode on the VT30 is just 24FPS correctly done, it'll still won't be as good as 60Hz (FPS).
24p mode has nothing to do with gaming... it's strictly for film. If you set the PS3 to enable 24p mode, it won't limit your games to 24fps. That's why this setting is in the video or blu-ray/dvd section of the settings (don't remember which one). 48/60/96 is also strictly for 24p sources, not games. Games will output 60Hz whether the game targets 30 or 60fps.
