Hello,
I've been trying to solve this problem: my footage (pans) is very chunky. I'm very sure it has to do with the shutter settings, but I've tested so many different settings that I'm very confused.

Here's what I used:
Menu of the camera: 1920 / 24 all I
I left the shutter at 50 (changing it higher gave the same results)

Magic Lantern:
Raw Video (MLV), Res. 1920 x 1080
FPS Override: Low light 24 from 24

Does it help to activate Frame Skipping?
Does the Rolling Shutter need to be changed? And how?
And which settings do you recommend for Shutter fine-tuning? I used +47 units, so that "Sutter" indicats 180 degree angle.

I have the feeling that Shutter fine-tuning and FPS Override relate with each other, but I really don't know the settings...
Can anyone help with presettings for a smooth recording?

First make sure it's not your computer/viewer messing up. Does it happen recording RAW/MLV only or is it reproduceable in H.264, too?

but I've tested so many different settings that I'm very confused.

Prefs -> Config Files -> Restore ML defaults -> Restart cam
Try not changing settings now and try to reproduce.
