    I'm sure it's higher quality but I doubt people are going to see that much of a difference unless you have a split screen showing both.

    Hahaha, though to be fair, a lot more things happen per page in The Hobbit than in the Lord of the Rings trilogy where there's a lot of walking.

    "Strobing" is most often experienced when the camera is following something that is bladed or spoked (like a propeller or wheel). The strobing effect makes the propeller or wheel seem to be slowly spinning in the opposite direction, or much slower in the same direction, than it really is. 48 fps should reduce the amount of strobing observed.

    Now, how many movies in the future will be made needing shots of spinning propellers?

    In addition to that sort of strobing effect, panning shots are also susceptible to degradation at 24fps. 48fps should make pans look much smoother.

    I don't mind higher frame rate. For games, higher is better.

    I doubt all the movie theaters can show it at 48fps. Especially in 3D. They'll just show it at 24. Blu-Ray doesn't support it, so we can forget about it for home movies too.

    People won't really know the difference and since all the special effects work is doubled, it increase the cost a lot. I doubt we'll see lots of 48fps movies in the near future, except huge money makers.
