At risk of missing something obvious, I don't understand 'how' this makes it more natural. It feels like the example here would benefit from a side by side comparison of the mid-word edit and the 2nd take only edit to hear why it is superior?
I thought it was just me initially too. Fought with my brother who was so proud of his new TV...the picture made me nauseous. I struggle to find the right words to explain to him what it was doing...soap opera effect was the best I could come up with at the time. It is not easy to turn off in some of the TV's I have battled with. My last one seemed to be a 'vivid' setting plus another area that mentioned 'smoothing'...I would love for this to off by default.
