I came across the following article which talks about the upcoming Hobbit movie, the use of 3D and High Frame Rates (HFR). The industry standard 24 fps doubled to 48 fps.
Questions that come to mind are:
Will this mean we all have to shoot in 48fps? In other words, will that become the new "standard"? Will it mean we won't be striving for that "film" look any more? (I suspect all of this is a "no," but I'm curious what others think.)
The article shows the difference between 25 and 50, but where does my 60i (29.97 fps) come in to play? It looks "like video" compared to the film look of 24fps, but will it look odd compared to 48fps?
