mixing colors

Hi all,

I guess you guys all know the trick to mix colors by switching between two from frame to frame. So I played around with this trick a little bit and noticed that on my Samsung TV I only see some weird interlacing because of some stupid filter this TV seems to use. As long as stuff is moving, everything looks nice. But as soon as sth stays on one place this interlacing effect kicks in. I tried every option from my TV - without success. BTW you can see the same effect in many games when you are hit and the sprite blinks.

So, I guess my question is: Did anyone had any similar experience with your TVs? Did you find a solution? Also, for mixing colors, have you found that some combinations worked well on some TVs but not so well on others? Other best practices/recommendations for mixing colors?

what kind of TV is this? so called "100Hz" CRTs can do weird things like that. and of course all kinds of modern TFT based TVs that do various types of deinterlacing.

If it‘s a modern TV, you probably want it set to „Game“ mode.

Yes, it's a modern TFT. Unfortunately, "Game Mode" doesn't help.
