FRC (frame rate conversion) is basically only for those who have 60Hz displays. Since film is 24p, it needs to be converted to play on a 60Hz display because 24 is not a multiple of 60. The conversion process causes judder that is most noticeable when the camera pans across a scene. FRC removes this judder and essentially makes it look like how a film will look on a display that supports 24p.
BTW, the link above is for v0.86... v0.86.1 is the latest version. The latest version will always be in the first post of that thread at doom9.
For the best results, enable FRC in the smooth motion section, and uncheck 'don't use linear light for smooth motion frame blending' (if your GPU can handle it).
Thanks, I agree with frame interpolation...never really liked it on LED/LCD tv's with 120hz. Mixed feelings with my plasma and SVP enabled.
So anyways, now that I understand that FRC is under the smooth motion section of madvr's settings....I tried enabling and something bad happened (I forget exactly I'll have to try it again later today).
Do I want it enabled and select "only of there would be motion judder without it..."?
I may have selected enable smooth motion AND enabled the don't use linear light thing at the same time...
Thanks guys for the insight and sorry OP for the hijacking
Edit: Actually I remember the issue I had, with smooth motion and the linear light thing checked I had some bad skipping video. Perhaps I need to tweak the settings. I have an i5 760 and a Nvidia GTX 460.
