HD motion like TV in Linux

Are you a movie lover? Do you like to watch movie in TV? Do you like HD motion like Motionflow by Sony? If you like all those then the following post is for you.

First you need to know what we will going to do here. FULL HD TV has a dedicated hardware to increase the frame rate(fps) upto 120-240fps. Computer or laptop doesn't have this hardware but with a powerful CPU/GPU and 60HZ(at least) monitor you can increase the frame rate to 60fps. This technology is called frame interpolation. The effect is quite amazing.

Thanks to SVP project which make it easier in Linux. Following hardware and software are required.

  • Core2DUO or more powerful CPU
  • At least 60HZ monitor
  • svp version 4
  • mpv media player 
Download and install svp 4 for linux here. Run the following command in terminal to install mpv media player.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:djcj/vapoursynth 
sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get install mpv vapoursynth

You are done. To play a file, open SVP manager, Go to Main menu > open file.

To get the better effect choose the following settings in SVP manager

  • Select animation mode not film
  • Select artifacts medium/high
  • Select quality as high as possible
  • Application settings > additional options > processing thread = 11

You should adjust those values and check performance to get the optimal settings.
