Savage assumes that players walk in a straight line between server updates (20 server fps = 50ms), but if a player switches direction between server updates, the game has to fix their position when a new update arrives, and they will be teleported a bit from where they were moving to where they actually went.

This makes for jittery movement, so Savage uses a variable called cl_lerpshift (default = 0.4). This delays all other players' positions by 0.6 of a server frame (30ms), so that when the game makes a correction to their position, they don't have to teleport as far.

When recording gameplay for movies, you can reduce the jitter even more by increasing that delay. Use the command cl_lerpshift 0 (this delays players' positions by a full frame) to reduce jitter even more and make your recording smoother.

TLDR:
cl_lerpshift 0.4 (default setting)
cl_lerpshift 0 (smooth recording setting, do not use this for gameplay)
