Choppy OBS Recordings No Matter What

For the life of me I can not get fully smooth recordings. I will say that its not the whole videos that be choppy, only parts but still, I have no idea what's causing this. As you can see (from MSI Afterburner & log file) nothing is being maxed out on my pc. As I said before, the whole video isn't choppy but you can see that for like the first minute of the video that it isn't "smooth". I have no lagged frames or rendering stalls, I play at 60fps and record at 60 fps so I'm at a loss. I used to actually get the "encoding overload" message but I haven't had that message since upgrading to an SSD (for recordings). I've done everything from recording to SSD, lowering recording to 720p 60fps, disabling game bar/ game mode, disabling look ahead & psycho visual tuning, enabling game mode, using different media players, etc. No matter what I do, at least SOME part of my recording will choppy. I also believe that its choppy when I stream as well, so the problem isn't exclusive to recordings. Any help is appreciated and thank you guys for your time.

would help if you highlighted the "choppy" parts of your video, or annotated the times at which this occurred. But man I have been having some similar issues with no fix in sight. I will be recording and then out of nowhere randomly seemingly everything just "crashes" to 30FPS (usually after around 30 to 60 min of gameplay).

yeah man, this is so frustrating to have this hamper your streaming / recordings. OBS is such a great thing when it comes to software, but they need to get it working properly pronto. I never used to have any of this kind of issue, it's a recent thing so I think it's the recent update, but who knows. I will be streaming for a while, everything working swimmingly and then all of a sudden stream / recording drops to 30FPS for no reason whatsoever. Have all power settings at max and high priority etc, nothing seems to work. Hope they get it corrected soon, it's a sore in my gaming experience currently.

I have the exact same problem, my vids looks the same. I tryed to record with OBS, ACTION and Shadowplay - all the same, choppy video. I guess problem somewhere in GPU/NVENC/IDK.

I have your exact problem it happened at some point during June and suddenly every time I do slow movement in my videos they have this weird choppy frame slowdown. It is especially bad when using controller in 3rd person games
Yes, exactly the same thing as mine, and especially when the camera moves smoothly it is noticeable. It is absolutely unclear what to do
