Question

Automotion Plus advice

by mb571 / December 29, 2011 4:12 PM PST

Hi folks. I have a new Samsung UN55D6420 LED tv. I only buy a tv about every 10 years so it is important to me to make sure I have the right tv. The thing I am struggling with is Samsung's method of controlling motion and the unnatural Soap Opera effect. I am trying the various settings to try and find a compromise between stuttering motion and an unnatural Soap Opera look. I am watching Blu-rays of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. I notice the suddering motion when there is a 360 degree panoramic scene and the Automotion plus is turned off. My comments on the various Automotion plus settings:
1. Auto- good motion but unatural look
2. Clear- my current choice for natural look but still results in a bit of judder.
3. Standard and Smooth, similar to Auto.
I am unsure how to experiment with Custom, adjusting the Blur and Judder Reduction. Can anyone comment on these settings or share their experiences? I hope I have the best choice of tv in this price range. I am concerned though.

Automotion Plus Off

I have it (Automotion Plus) off for tv and lower quality video. If I switch it off for a blu-ray, I notice stutter and blurring in the picture. Motion is not handled very well when set to off.

BD Wise On

My Blu-ray player is a Samsung 3D Wi-Fi Blu-ray Player (BD-D6500) and is set with BD Wise on. I believe that makes it select the best choice for format. With BD wise on, the ``Movie Frame 24Fs`` is greyed out at Auto.

Judder vs Soap Opera Effect

Very frustrating. I complained about the Soap Opera effect and a Samsung tech told me to turn off Automotion Plus. The judder was awful, and when I complained about the judder, a Samsung tech said it was because you turned off the Automotion plus. I have about one more week while I can still return this UN55D6420. I very much want to keep it, but in the end I have to be confident that it is capable of producing a decent picture that looks realistic and free of judder.

So far I've tried Automotion Plus set to "Clear". No Soap Opera effect and mild Judder.
I am currently experimenting with "Custom" Judder - 8, Blur Reduction - 0
In the end I hope to be able to tune it to a picture I can live with. Samsung needs to tune their manuals and Tech advice such that people are not returning these tv's when they are tricky to get good results with.
The most challenging scene that is a good test for Judder is from LOTR- The Two Towers, Extended blu-ray, disc 2, chapter 13, 44:25 where the camera pans around Aragorn for 360 degrees. With Automotion plus off the mountains are just a twitching.

by customizing your auto motion plus from juddee reduction from 0 to 10 and blur reduction to 10 both judder and blur to max of 10 on my 75 inch samsung 6300 240 hertz tv video games play and feel a lot smoother and more realistic and for my tv there is no lag at all i got screenshots of breath taking graphics to prove it...with it on video games at higher fps play smoother and run how they suppose to

Your reply is not about the UN55D6420 so I'm unsure why you added this.
