Noisy, soft webcam feed/ timelapse

Camera model: Logitech C920

I am using a C920 in conjunction with octolapse to record timelapses and generally monitor the print. When configuring the camera settings I can not find a combination of settings that results in a good, in focus/sharp, low noise image. To test my settings I am setting them in the Octolapse panel and previewing them via myIP:8080/?action=stream. I have 2 10W video lights providing about 1500 - 1800 lumens of light to the print bed area. I have set manual focus, exposure, and white balance. I feel like I am missing something, but I'm just not sure what to look at/for.

Perhaps a screenshot plus the settings you currently use will show us if something is going wrong on your setup or you have unrealistic expectations.

I'm using somewhere around 2500 lumens at about 1M from the printer. As @fieldOfView said, I think we'll need a video/snapshot and your current settings to figure it out. I know the 920 can work well, since that's what I use.
