Today I learned why digital projections, especially if my eyes are moving, sometimes have this weird, stuttery look where the Red, Green, and Blue all break down.

The effect is called the Phantom Array effect (and for digital projectors, it's specifically called the DLP rainbow).

This happens when your eyes are moving because each red, green, and blue frame will hit your retina at different places that don't overlap. It happens more often in your peripheral vision because the Flicker Fusion Threshold is lower there.

Did I get that right?
