I believe the clear and clear plus mode use backlight blinking/strobing which causes the image to lose some brightness.
[Smooth]: Provides smoother picture movement; especially effective for film-based content.
[Standard]: Provides smoother picture movement for standard use.
[Clear]: Reduces motion blur while maintaining brightness for high-speed picture content.
[Clear Plus]: Reduces motion blur for high-speed picture content more than [Clear].
[Impulse]: Reproduces original picture quality. Provides cinema-like picture, which may flicker.
[Off]: Use this setting if [Smooth], [Standard], [Clear], [Clear Plus] or [Impulse] results in picture noise.
(Depending on the picture content, you may not see the effect visually even if you have changed the settings.)
[Auto 1]: Provides smoother picture movement than the original film-based content by applying a film-specific process. Use this setting for standard use.
[Auto 2]: Displays film-based content with picture expression close to the original by applying a film-specific process.
[Off]: Turns off [CineMotion].
(If the image contains irregular signals or too much noise, this setting is automatically turned off even if [Auto 1] or [Auto 2] is selected.)
