SmoothVideo Project (SVP) 3.1.6

SVP allows you to watch any video on your PC file with frame interpolation (like you can watch it on high-end TVs and projectors). It increases frame rate by generating intermediate animation frames between existing ones to produce very smooth, fluid and clear motion. The technology is well-known for a while ("TrimensionDNM", "Motion Plus", "Motionflow" and others), but now it's available for free to PC users with simple GUI and just a couple of mouse clicks.

SVP provides GPU acceleration and it's possible to watch FullHD 1080p-video recalculated to 60Hz in real-time with mid-range CPU and almost any GPU hardware. SVP actually is not a video player itself, but it enables almost any player to play smooth video.

What's new in this version:

  • Added black borders auto detection and cropping;
  • Quality improvement - intermediate frames are calculated in linear light;
  • Improved 3D stereo formats detection using tags in file names;
  • Added option to drop every other frame;
  • SVP can be installed in limited accounts;
  • Lots of small bugs fixed;
  • Deleted components: Matroska Haali splitter, external LAV Filters (replaced with LAV Filters bundled in MPC-HC);
  • Updated components: MPC-HC 1.7.3 with internal LAV Filters, ffdShow rev.4530, ReClock, madVR 0.87.9, SVPtube 1.1.5.

It's not exactly as high quality as built-in hardware solutions found in HDTVs, but on some certain kinds of footage it can work great.

This effect works flawlessly on Mirillis' Splash PRO.
The problem is that Hollywood movies are awkward at that speed.

The problem is of course that these algorithms create new frames that aren't there so it's not nearly the same as native 60, and you always get the wake/bubble effect.

It is true that the above video doesn't reflect the SVP capabilities but the program itself it does. The effect is also called 'Soap Opera Effect or 'motion smoothing' and is available in shareware programs like Mirillis Splash PRO EX (Picture²) and Cyberlink PowerDVD (TrueTheater Motion).

Some high frame rate videos:

and it probably adds the same water wake effect around moving object or objects in front of a moving background that a tv does as well. There's a reason everyone turns this crap off.
