Don't bother with codec packs, just install everything separately(mpc-hc+lav filters [optionally: madvr, xy-vsfilter). Configuring madvr cannot be done automatically. If you dont want to fiddle around with settings you might as well grab this build of mpc-hc http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=161047 and set the resizer to f.e lanczos2(or whatever looks best to you), choose a dithering pattern etc.

But don't some not like the "soap opera effect"? I guess this isn't really the thread for this discussion...

The soap Opera effect is one of two things.

1. The SVP and smooth motion is not properly working so you get a smoothness that seems fake or is sort of jerky.
2. You have become addicted to a certain level of static or picture sliding in the video content you watch(very much the same as people who still want records over CDs.)

If done correctly you should get a comparable you the new Hobbit movie look and if you think that has the soap opera effect then you would fall into the second possibility tongue.gif

I watched The Hobbit in cinema and didn't really notice much difference.

I did watch SVP's example - a 24Hz made into 60Hz - and my first reaction is "wow how smooth and immersive" - second was "that's quite scary". And it is at first - but it is hypocritical of consumers to want higher res and pixel density but shy away from higher fps, which would be a massive improvement to our current situation (and the easiest to implement).

To any doubters I's say give it a month or two to give yourself time to adjust, then go back. At that point if you prefer 24fps there's little one can do about it, if you prefer 60fps welcome to the future.

I don't know if I setup madVR right, I have smooth on, but my videos look pretty much the same. Of course they aren't the higest of quality, just regular HD tv rips.

None of my content looks like the hobbit.

Smooth motion blends frames. What you want - for higher fps like the Hobbit - is the SmoothVideoProject (SVP) discussed earlier in this thread.

Exactly the expected outcome from having this on is a bit better clarity in parts of the video that are fast moving.

Is it important to have an awg 24 cable, or would an awg 28 do as well? (remember I want to reach 120Hz, stock cable does ~115Hz)
those 24awg cables seem to cost more than 80€ here in Germany.


btw. what does that CL2 stand for?

Hmm that's strange, why wouldn't he be able to post it in Germany? Sorry to hear that. Maybe it's worth contacting him to find out?

Cables are a bit hit and miss, some people gain a bit, others say it makes no difference. Bit hard to justify 80euros for a cable tbh... AWG24 is a lot thicker but the jury is still out as to whether it really makes a huge amount of difference to the output...

The one I linked to is only 3ft long too, which is quite limiting.

Don't worry about CL2 (it's not like RAM specs lol), just for building regs I think (ie it's safe to route within walls or something). headscratch.gif
