Switching to barre chords

I've been playing guitar off and on for a few years now and finally decided to get serious about learning to play. Everything's going great apart from one thing: switching from an open chord to a barre chord is just killing me. I've tried everything including releasing the open chord on the last strum and giving myself more time to position my hand for the first strum of the barre but it still sounds choppy.

Any suggestions?
