After watching these music videos and movies like step up.. I am convinced that there is some sort of filter or setting or something people are doing to make movement seem sharper then they really are. Examples of dance scenes can be seen in videos like...













or even in some fight scenes...







it is seen very well in fight scene

The movements look sharper because each frame is very sharp with little to no motion blur. The effect is accomplished by shooting with a high shutter speed. You will need more light on-set than you might be used to, and the higher you push the shutter speed, the more light you'll need.

This technique was used to great effect in films like Saving Private Ryan and Gladiator.

ReelSmart Motion Blur [link] from RE:Vision Effects can reduce motion blur in video footage.

It's an amazing effect, and the results can be very good -- but it's math, not magic, and an effect like this is really best in-camera.
