Default action sequence blur

I asked last week about grain in films, and what can be done on my set to reduce it. I appreciate the responses.

I am also noticing a clear, blurred edge surrounding body parts or prominent features while in fast-action sequence. I also notice something similar when a bright beam of light, for instance a flashlight pointed back across the camera towards me, or a bright muzzle burst, or a flickering candle. I don't know exactly what to call it, but it seems most noticeable on standard blu rays and occasionally on 4k discs. It's almost like thin clear force field that extends an inch or so around the moving piece in question.

Is this strictly a byproduct of the refresh rate? is this a motion setting that can be adjusted? do I need to adjust the set or player to match the FPS of the material I'm trying to watch?

Having trouble finding a proper representation to use as a sample via youtube or google images.

It could be a combination of equipment and/settings. Check your TV to see if you've got motion blur or de-judder options enabled, as well as checking to see if local dimming is on.

It's also worth checking to see if you've enabled 24hz playback on your player as well. Try a few scenes with it on and a few with it off.

Made a big difference! Watching Predators, and early action scene, as I did last night. TV was set with Cinemotion (Sony XBR) on high. It claims to "process IP conversions appropriate for a wide selection of video formats. With additional frame compensation to remove judder." I turned that to OFF and the clear bubble I noticed went away. Judder did get worse in slow moving sequence, so I moved the setting to LOW and the judder is much better now too!

Checked the Xbox one S and it is allowing 24hz.

Thanks!
