This is quite vague.

What kind of settings are you looking for? As in, exposure, picture style, audio, live view tools (such as histogram, zebra, etc.)?

If you provide us with more info about your work, we may be able to give you some tips and point you in the right direction. In the end however, it's still your choice over which settings suite you (and your workflow) best!

Can someone advice me on how to avoid stuttering motion in shots where the subject is fact moving? is 60fps the only way out or do I have to avoid shooting perpendicular to the line of motion? Any ideas? because it's really messing up a music video I shot where the artist in dancing and all everyone seems to notice is the shuddering motion.

What was your shutter speed? As a rule of thumb you probably don't want to go below 1/fps

Shot at 24fps, whenever  the subject moves fast sideways like if swinging from side to side (dancing), I get the stuttering motion, shall I give u the link?

If you want to, but it's almost useless without knowing the settings you used

by settings you mean shutter speed & FPS right? I used 24fps, shutter 48 anything more that might help to know?
