Since every time I’ve tried to start a thread the forums deny me the ability to do so, I’ve been posting in the related PiTool threads about the Smart Smoothing issues that began with v272 (I think). As soon as Pimax added the 1/3 option I’ve been unable to tolerate smart smoothing at all because it will automatically throttle all the way down to 1/3 when it’s completely unnecessary to do so. The 1/3 option looks awful and causes a lot of obvious stuttering on movement. It’s useless. It’s worse that useless, because the moment you turn on Smart Smoothing at all you end up with PiTool thinking you need 1/3 rate in many places where 1/2 should be working just fine.
I’ve had to reconfigure every darn game where I used Smart Smoothing to lower resolutions so I can turn Smart Smoothing off altogether. In many cases this means I’ve had to resort to using 60hz refresh on the HMD where I use to use 90/45fps with Smart Smoothing.
To be succinct; The 1/3 option is unusably bad - I will NEVER configure a game to run poorly enough to need it. It being there makes Smart Smoothing completely unusable to me. Pimax, you NEED to fix this, ASAP. Either just remove it (it’s so bad why did you bother enabling it in the first place?) or tell us how to use Smart Smoothing at 1/2 without ever switching to 1/3.
