Filmmaker Mode is a good addition to LG Smart TV that can enhance the watching experience. By enabling this mode, you can watch movies and TV shows with better picture quality since it disables motion smoothing. In addition, it will preserve the actual frame rate by turning off the noise reduction and other video enhancements.
In this article, you will learn about the Filmmaker mode and how to use it on an LG Smart TV in detailed steps.
What is Filmmaker Mode?
A Filmmaker Mode is nothing but the Director cut of a movie. In Filmmaker mode, people can see the real color balance and the light effects that are used in the movie.
If you have LG 4K and 8K TVs, you can watch movies at 60fps to 120fps. Basically, the movies are shot in 24fps to get a real cinematic feel. If you turn on the Filmmaker Mode on the TV, you can watch the movies in the true format of how the director has intended.
Note: For the best audio experience, you can enable Dolby Atmos on an LG TV.
