Very helpful, just fixed up a shot I am working on with this.
Thanks Omarz.


…Half frame offsets are in a sense the most difficult to interpolate (the minimum distance between input frames is maximized right in the middle). So your settings are giving the retimer a really difficult job here–it constantly switches between the “nicest” (integer frame) and “worst” (half frame) volumes. If you change your start frame to 1.25 instead, then you'll get a fairly consistent level of blurring throughout (since it'll compute frames 1.25, 1.75, 2.25, etc.), and the flickering should be eliminated.
