I am confused with the below information that I copied and pasted here. Does this mean I should turn off the 24fps and leave Film mode OFF and Judder to STANDARD? I thought Film mode should be Auto 1 or 2 and Judder set to OFF.
Also on tap in the F8500 is 96Hz processing for handling 24fps material from Blu-ray movie discs, which does not work very well. In fact, the Cinema Smooth feature is what engages the 96Hz processing in the Samsung, conjointly taking away the Judder Corrector feature in the process. The end result unfortunately is the introduction of so much judder that this feature is not useable. With that said, the Samsung F8500 running at 60Hz, still delivers smoother pans like the fly over scene in Chapter 7 of “I am Legend” than the Panasonic VT50 series in its 60Hz setting. The Panasonic’s 96Hz processing scheme appears to first take the signal to 60Hz inserting 2:3 pull-down, and then converting the signal to 96Hz. This process produces an unacceptable amount of judder in the picture and is best left at the 60Hz setting in the Panasonic. The same is true of the Samsung where 96Hz is best left off, but it delivers that same scene much more smoothly with no hint of 2:3 pull-down hitching. I looked at this scene repeatedly, and found the best results with Film Mode set to Off on the Samsung, and the Judder Canceller set to Standard. The Race Car clip in 24p from the Spears & Munsil Blu-ray test disc was also reproduced very smoothly and cleanly.
