Watch Videos In Smooth Playback With Smooth Video Project [Windows]
Do you notice that videos watched on high-end TVs, seems smoother, clearer and more "fluid"? In a fast action scene we can barely see what is going on because most videos are projected at 24 frames per second. "Frame Interpolation" technology helps generate intermediate animation in between frames to produce a smooth motion; hence during a fast-moving scene, the video will not look blurry.

To optimize for the best playback experience, some settings are better dealt with manually. The following profile settings should work properly for standard computers but for the best experience, it is better to test out the settings one by one until you find whichever setting is the best setup for your computer.
Look for the "Active profile settings" by right clicking SVP Manager on the system tray, click on Video profile and choose your resolution from the list. Once you have your settings, make sure to have the same settings in all active profile settings too.
If the default SVP settings doesn’t work out well for you, right click SVP Manager in system tray, go to Video profiles then click on Reset to defaults and you will be prompted with predefined profiles sets. Note that you will lose all previous settings that you made in Active profile setting.
In here you have to pick the item that best describes your system. Then press OK.
