60 Hz is always going to look smoother than 30 Hz, that's the point...

actually with LG motion settings you cannot differ between 30 and 60 fps. that is the nice thing about LG Oled Tv'S, that you can play 30 fps in 4K. but Sony and/or LG fudgeed it up to make 30 fps smooth like in the past.

For gaming you really shouldn't be using any motion settings. If you're happy with them in use then carry on but this really isn't something most would do due to the increased input lag.

Demon's souls at 30fps is dreadful, nowhere near as nice as miles morales at the same rate. Its fizzy and so sluggish.
Does anyone with an LG c or b x get 119 fps on cold War when they repeatedly press the green button on the remote?

just bought "the pathless" for PS5 and now there is the judder again in graphics mode (30fps i guess).
I just thought I'd add it's possible to get your C9 to show you the frame rate. Go into settings, go down to Programmes, go right to Programme Tuning & Settings and then press the 1 key five times.

This may be a dumb suggestion but just in case it helps you might want to try seeing if using Game Mode but disabling Instant Game Response (VRR) helps at all. This video shows you where the setting is (about 2 minutes in):

Ultrasonic, i tried what you said. I also set the 4K transfer to -2. nothing helps here. i am very curious if this game is an exception, or others will follow with that problem. in any case, this sucks.

I agree but, I don't limit it to gaming, I just don't use motion settings full stop.

update: demon's souls runs smooth as it should on cinematic mode on LG C9. it seems "The Pathless" has troubles with their Cinematic mode. I will write them a case what is going on there. Furthermore i hope, that there will not be any more games with motion stutter in the future....

I have all motion processing disabled across the board too but I was focusing on the topic at hand :) .

What do you mean by 'Cinematic mode'? Are you referring to a game or TV setting?

High resolution mode of the games. I will always use high res since LG Oled does the job of offering terrific motion. So I do not need 60fps.

I would suggest that your recent experience suggests otherwise...

I'll just add that I really don't think LG would be expecting people to be using motion processing for gaming.

Maybe that is your and other people's preference. I do not see a big difference in 60 fps and LG true motion OFF or 30 fps WITH LG true motion. i think we should not discuss this preferences. fact is, "The Pathless" does not do the job good in resolution mode and i hope they will respond to my inquiry.

The way the LG OLEDs handle motion is one of their few downsides when compared to the Panasonic OLEDs or the king or motion processing, the Sony's but, the (current) Sony's suffer with terrible lag and poor peak brightness.

I wouldn't dream of introducing additional processing into my viewing habits, and definitely not when it comes to gaming.

What's the point of having one of the quickest TVs available when it comes to lag and then enabling processing?! It's like attaching a caravan to an Aston Martin:facepalm:.

It's a preference just so long as you realise what you are trading off, which is a drop in responsiveness due to the input lag introduced. I'm saying this just in case you're only going off quick visual comparisons rather than proper gameplay testing.

Play demon's souls at thirty then sixty and tell me you you don't need sixty because your TV makes 60 redundant.
I've not read such a crock of cack in years.

as i said, OLED does all the work. try it yourself. but again, this was not the subject of this discussion.

update: "Control" does a fantastic job with LG C9.
Furthermore i talked with LG several times. They said firmware 05.00.10 addressed the jitter issue. But still they are working on it for corrections. New firmware date not confirmed yet. "The Pathless" support did not react yet about jitter issue.

I was having the same issue and going to this thread and try to find out a way to resolve. Meanwhile I replug the HDMI from HDMI 1 to HDMI 2 (ARC) and problem solved with 4k video transfer rate on Automatic.

I gotta say... I just made the switch from a Samsung 9000 to the OLED C1, and the picture quality is hands down better than the Samsung. But when it comes to running PS5 games like Elden Ring, Battlefield and GT7 - I keep getting this jittery thing as well. In Elden Ring, paying special attention to the horse when moving left or right, he'll start to jitter as if it's having trouble processing the frame speed. This is kind of ridiculous that a Samsung tv from 2016 is beating out the latest LG panels in motion performance. I had this issue with my last LG as well back in 2012, but I figured they would have gotten it down by now.

I've tried all of the recomendations above and nothing is working for me. The jittering is driving me absolutely insane, to the point where I'm even considering moving my Samsung back into the living room. Does anyone have any recommendations besides going out of Game Mode and moving the Transfer Rate on PS5 to -1 or -2? Because not even that is working for me.
