If you want clear motion that is nice and smooth but not too much soap opera effect try these settings
Motionflow Custom, Smoothness at 1 or 2, Clearness at Min, Cinemotion at Med.
I have used these motion settings for several days now.
I have done testing by watching MLB games.
I'm content that the motion looks the same as my plasma when the ball is thrown at the batter, as it goes toward the batter.
I was even wondering whether the level of detail was the same. But here are 2 pictures, first from the plasma, 2nd from the Sony. They look the same level of detail.
Ignore the color differences, as I think that's more about the exposure settings and light conditions in the different rooms, even though I tried to keep them the same. And I seem to prefer a warmer color temperature with the plasma, and a cooler one with the Sony.
However, there is a hitch when the pitcher is at the start of his windup motion, before he releases his ball. I've tried both with the motion settings above, and with MotionFlow and CineMotion off.
I've tried games cast from my phone, and directly from the MLB.TV app.
Almost every time, I see a hitch by the pitcher. I can upload a video if it would really help.
I've never had this observation with my plasma.
As I said, I'm content that the motion of the ball, once it is released, is fine. But the motion of the pitcher, as he's throwing it, seems off.
