Q1 - ? (I didn't have the problem of everything looking sped up)
Q2 - 3 (and just generally fake looking)
Q3 - 2 (no)
Q5 - 1 (yes, *but* only after I've seen it in 24fps)

RE: afterthecredits [In reply to] Can't Post

Question One - How long did the 48fps look sped up?
2- Until around the end of the dinner sequence

Question Two - How would you describe the look of 48fps?
3- Soap opera - I would say it's a tad too harsh. A rather high standard BBC drama picture quality instead.

Question Three - As a result of the 48fps did you tear up, need to look away from the screen or have to take off 3d glasses more than regular?
2- No - it was very clear indeed

Question Four - If yes to question three, how often did you have to do this?
N/A

Question Five - Based on the hobbit an unexpected journey, would you go and see the upcoming hobbit sequels in 48fps?
2- No - I'll be sticking with 24 fps me/

1) Only at the start. I expected it to look different so it didn't bother me to adapt to it. I've seen it twice, both times in 48fps.
2) 1-Realistic. Like watching a play on the best stage possible.
3) A couple of times the first times I saw it, I had to tale the glasses off. I was getting a headache. My fault as I had chosen a seat less than halfway to the screen. This was in an Ultrascreen theatre which is three stories tall. I sat further back the next time and had no trouble.
I look forward to seeing all the films in 48 fps, as well as seeing the first one again the same way. Loved it.
By the way, I'm 59 and still had no trouble adapting to this new fangled format!

Question One - How long did the 48fps look sped up?
I'm afraid I can't answer this with any of the options because to me it didn't look sped up at all. The first time I saw it in 48fps I only remembered about halfway through the prologue that it even was in 48fps and then I still didn't notice a difference.

Question Two - How would you describe the look of 48fps?
5- Any other (I don't know how to describe it really. Something between realistic and a fantasy world, just as it should be)

Question Three - As a result of the 48fps did you tear up, need to look away from the screen or have to take off 3d glasses more than regular?
2- No

Question Four - If yes to question three, how often did you have to do this?
-

Question Five - Based on the hobbit an unexpected journey, would you go and see the upcoming hobbit sequels in 48fps?
1- Yes (I wouldn't necessarily seek it out because to me there wasn't really much difference at all, but I'd have no reason to avoid it either)

Hope this helps... [In reply to] Can't Post

Q1 - Didn't notice this problem at all, though the Erebor sequence did have a lot of fast camera work!
Q2 - 3 - too realistic and voyeuristic!
Q3 - 2
Q5 - 2 No, but I'd be interested to see AUJ in 2D HFR just to see if it is better, and whether it's simply 3D that put me off (don't think so!)

That's quite a leading first question. [In reply to] Can't Post

Question One - never.

Question Two - Realistic

Question Three - No

Question Five - Yes (actually, in both 48fps and the usual 24fps, as I did this time).

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

5- None of the above - it never looked sped up to me.

2- No, I had no eye strain at all.

Hi! My Answers: [In reply to] Can't Post

Questions One - 1: Only at the very beginning, and very slightly at that. Just a few seconds of Bilbo alone at Bag End and the Erebor prologue.

Question Two - 5: Not very different from 24 FPS, really. Slightly smoother movement, better clarity. Not any more realistic than other movies shown at the cinema. No adverse soap opera/video-game/sports effect.

Question Three - 2: Actually made the 3D less annoying/more watchable. Less flicker and eye strain.

Question Five - 1: Yes, definitely.

Q1. I noticed it when Bilbo was first walking around his house, but it was very brief and there were no problems after that. Besides, I thought my mind was playing tricks on me, so I let it go.

Q2. Looked realistic to me. As I stated in another post, I felt like I was standing on the stage watching a play happen around me.

Q3. No problems here.

Q5. Yes, but I'll likely see it in 24 first. I'll probably be seeing it first with my best friend and his wife, and I doubt they'll want to see it in 48. But I WILL see it in 48. ^_^

1. 5 (Did not look sped up at all)
2. 1 (but somewhat over-saturated)
3. 2
4. N/A
5. 1

Several 3D movies have made me queasy in the past. I didn't feel any discomfort at all with the 48fps 3D of The Hobbit.

I cannot tell if the over-saturation was due to the 48fps, 3D, or just Peter Jackson's choice. I've noticed this with other 3D films not in 48fps.

'There is some woe that lies upon you... Why will you not tell me more?'
'For that woe is past,' said Galadriel; 'and I would take what joy is here left, untroubled by memory. And maybe there is woe enough yet to come, thought still hope may seem bright.'

Absolutely never, and I truly have no earthly idea what anybody is talking about here. Nothing ever looked “sped up”. The problem is, you didn’t even allow for that possible answer in your questionnaire. So all these are just about us weighting your answers, not giving our own. Doesn’t seem very useful.

There were scenes that looked drastically different in the 48-fps vs the 24-fps versions. One was when they cut the ropes and the goblins swinging on the ropes swung around in an ever-tightening and ever-quickening loop about the same central piece. That looked kinda “yeah ok, whatever” in the 24-fps version compared with how it looked in the 48-fps version. The fast version was awesome.

On the other hand, the 3D was certainly supremely annoying at first, which is something else altogether. It got less obtrusive after a while, but would sometimes come back with a bother. A few times it was cool, many times it was get-outta-my-face-and-back-into-the-story. It’s one thing to get the occasional pop-up Christmas card, but when every single illustrated storybook you own starts dangling out at you like some hootananny jack-in-the-box, it is just too gimmicky for good storytelling.

…all eyes looked upon the ring; for he held it now aloft, and the green jewels gleamed there that the Noldor had devised in Valinor. For this ring was like to twin serpents, whose eyes were emeralds, and their heads met beneath a crown of golden flowers, that the one upheld and the other devoured; that was the badge of Finarfin and his house.

Loved the 3DHFR. [In reply to] Can't Post

1 - 1 - maybe but was not really aware of it. The only things I noticed at the start were spacial things I have noticed in other 3D movies as well so I don't think it was anything to do with HFR.
2 - 1 - never played video game or sports game, don't watch soap's. Could not relate it to anything else.
3 - 2
4
5 - 1

Have seen 2D and loved the clarity and being in there with them feel of 3DHFR.
