Motion smoothing and the soap opera effect on Samsung TVs
Auto Motion Plus is a motion smoothing feature that eliminates ghosting and blurring that occurs from fast moving images. This looks great on live TV, like sporting events or parades, which are filmed at 30 frames per second. Most movies, however, are filmed at 24 frames per second and are not intended to be viewed with this feature. When turned on, this causes the dreaded soap opera effect. Let us show you how to change these settings on your TV.
Change Auto Motion Plus settings on your TV
Navigate to Settings > Picture > Expert Settings.
Navigate to and Select Auto Motion Plus. The default setting for Auto Motion Plus is Auto. This means the feature automatically turns on and off based on the type of program being watched.
Select Auto Motion Plus to change the setting to either Off or Custom.
If you select Custom, three additional options are available:
Blur Reduction: Use the directional keys on the remote to adjust the Blur setting.
Judder Reduction: Use the directional keys on the remote to adjust the Judder setting.
LED Clear Motion: This option allows you to configure the LED backlight to sharpen fast-moving images. Select to turn On or Off.
