I film with a Panasonic HDC-HS700 at 1920x1080p and 60 fps. I often do left to right pan shots for commercials. When I upload the commercial to YouTube, the panning shots look terrible, very choppy, as if it's skipping frames, which makes sense since the frame rate on YouTube is probably 29.97, not 60p. Can I film in 60p and do something to the clip or my render settings to make it appear smoother on YT? Even when I film in 30p, it still looks terrible when uploaded to YouTube. Here's an example: http://youtu.be/RYP2JuLE0hY
Frame blending in Premiere doesn't seem to fix this issue, seen here: http://youtu.be/eyNTbmO-5p8
Thanks for your time,

Unfortunately you don't have much control over super smart Google developers, who decided to downconvert all HD uploads to media files with the bitrate around 6 Mbps, which in turn results in ugly artifacts in shots with a lot of motion...
The link you posted is entirely normal for pans at that speed. Slow down if you want it to look better.
Thanks Jim. After posting, I watched the video in another browser and it looked much better. Something might be wrong with the playback of video in my firefox browser.
