Q for those who have seen both 24 and 48 versions Can't Post

I finally saw the movie last night, in 24 fps 2D. (I can't watch 3D as far as I know, so most likely not going to be seeing any other version.) A few CGI-heavy scenes looked a bit "off" to me; basically the effect I would imagine if I saw a 48 FPS scene -- everything moving a bit too fluidly, I guess. Did you notice this in the 24 version? Was it present at 48 also? I'm wondering if it's an artifact of being designed/filmed at 48 FPS and being converted to 24 after the fact, because it's not something I've noticed in a movie before, even in something else CGI-heavy like the Star Wars prequels or whatever.

Since I don't think we are going to get a home video version at 48 FPS, I hope it's something they can fix for the home release, but we'll see.

For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much -- the wheel, New York, wars, and so on -- while all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man, for precisely the same reasons. -- Douglas Adams
