Examples

  • If the source was 25i, why changefps (23.976)? changefps will add / delete frames, so you are bound to get choppiness (maybe what you described as jitter?) it might help to post an unprocessed source sample, the ghosting might be blending frames or something else - hard to say without seeing it.

  • For example, the chip that a DAC uses to handle the conversion many competing DACs use the same chip isn't as crucial as other factors, like the DAC's ability to mitigate an esoteric problem in digital audio known as jitter.
