Filmmaker Mode has been built into LG televisions since 2019 and at CES 2020 LG announced that it is working on an API for streaming apps that can be used to automatically activate the mode to achieve the best image reproduction. can be done. Image processing options activated in other modes such as motion smoothing and additional sharpening of images can cause an otherwise unnatural display, the so-called soap opera effect. In Filmmaker mode, the aspect ratio, color, and frame rate of the film are also kept unchanged.

Filmmaker mode is not applicable

As soon as Prime Video is started through the Smart TV, an overlay menu notifies the activation of Filmmaker Mode, which also gives the user the option to deactivate the change. Also, as before, Movie Maker Mode can be turned on or off manually at any time via Properties, so Prime Video doesn’t force it.

TVs before 2021 will receive updates this week
