Ok, ok, 48fps wasn't well received by critics and users from Peter Jackson's 'Hobbit' footage, but that doesn't mean he's sitting in a room crying about it. Most viewers' issues with the footage was that it looked too realistic, or that it felt like it were shot on video.

On top of this, viewers' blamed the blemishes on actors and sets which were all-too-visible without the help of motion blur. Jackson has insisted that the footage lacked special effects and color correction, and that showing the 48fps trailer was too short to judge the increased frame rate.

 

Jackson has now stated there will be no 48fps trailer, boo. Jackson also adds that he is now "very aware of the strobing, the flicker and the artifacts" when he's watching regular 24fps cinema. This mirrors what I've said before, yes it's hard to go to higher fps, but once you've been there for a while and go back - the old 24fps viewing just feels really bad.
