    On a TV series I am working on, there are quite a few night scenes that where shot in slow shutter 360degrees. those scenes look very bad, videoish movement, to much motion blur and kind of a speedy feeling.

    Any means to correct it in post?

    Thanks.

    This is just the look of a 360 degree shutter, unfortunately. There is nothing that can be done after the fact.

    Check out the frames when you hover over 360 degrees. This is intentional and how shutter angle works. If you have dark scenes, you'll need to compensate in other ways than shutter angle if you don't want this look (wider aperture, higher ISO, more light, etc.)

    Shutter angle is the absolute last thing I sacrifice technically, if ever. I try and hang onto whatever my creative choice, usually 180 or skinnier. I'd encourage more light, faster glass, change in location, or anything else before affecting your shutter.

    I'd like to know what settings you're using with the 360 degree shutter. E.g. aperture, ISO.
    Good production values may not be noticed. Bad production values will be.

    I seriously wouldn't bother pressing the red button unless my shutter was 180 or below.

    Ask the DP if it was intentional - if yes, then it needs no correction. If not, make him reshoot the shite.

    If it does not hurt the scene you can speed it up x2 and you are back on 180. Common practice for car shots and stuff. But yes dies not work well with avtors in shot as they tend to look a bit charlie chaplin. :)
