English is not my main language, so I use subtitles in all content I watch: Netflix, infuse etc. I discovered that every time I use LG’s TruMotion to smooth out motion judder, my subtitles become strange. They are not completely sharp all the time, some kind of “tear” appears when there is fast motion on the screen, behind the subs.
It does not matter which TruMotion setting is activated, it can be set on 0 or 10, if it’s active, problems with subtitles appear. Only external subs have this problem in Infuse. Integrated subs from blurays are fine.
I don’t know how to explain what happens, will try to film it. But for now: if there is a still scene in the movie, subs are perfect, if one of the charcters in the movie, let’s say, moves a hand behind the subtitle, or run, or just walks, they will distord, flicker, loose shape for a split second. It has to be something with how LG motion processing is handling Apple’s subtitle layer on top of the content. It is happening really fast.
Can someone with LG and Apple TV try to recreate this problem so I can see that it’s not problem with my ATV/LG. Just play any movie in infuse, download any subtitle from integrated opensubtitles option, turn On TrueMotion, put it on 3 or 4, and watch the movie keeping an eye on subtitles when there is a motion on screen. If you notice tear/flickering, thank you. You helped me.
