How to Turn Off Motion Smoothing on LG, Panasonic, Samsung, Sony TV

In response to Tom Cruise’s PSA about turning off motion smoothing on your TV for the best movie experience, we show you how to adjust the motion settings on six TV brands (LG, Panasonic, Philips, Samsung, Sony, TCL) for accurate reproduction of 24fps (frames per second) films without soap opera effect (SOE).

Many thanks to the above manufacturers for sending me TV samples for the production of this video, and my calibration customer Leigh Weston for his help with the Sony section.

    We own an LG E7 OLED, and very much enjoy it. I cannot, however turn off motion control. Every setting looks very good to me, yet if I turn off motion control completely, my lazy eye goes absolutely crazy and I can't follow the on screen action. I still can't figure out why this happens.

    Thank you for the video. I was searching to find out how to shut off motion smoothing and couldn’t find it on my LG. Do you have another video that talks about other settings for LG?
    I went into my DVD player and changed the frame rate from 30 to 24. Do you recommend this as well? Thank you

    If I keep tru motion off, the ghosting is LITERALLY HURTING MY EYES. I have the 2017 LG OLED B7. I can tell you this ghosting is NOT in the theaters so saying that it’s how it should be us not convincing me when I can’t watch this ghosting.
