The relationship is - the lower the latency and better efficiency in drawing more frames per second to match the audio latency without stuttering - the smoother the experience :)
Waves are from your GPU where as sound is from your CPU (at least that's how I understand it).
Both my video and skin are set to 60fps.

videoVolumeLink set to yes will black out the video if the line fader is down.

Most of the time, your monitor refresh rate is 60. It is fairly easy for the software to match that rate except in case where your machine (CPU or GPU) is too slow or you have something running that burdens the machine badly. 60 FPS is almost like a default rate for DirectX assuming refresh rate is 60. So using 60 it is easiest for the software to deal with.
You must match that rate to get smoothness and no tearing. It would be ok to use 30 FPS but that can be hard to achieve. There is no setting for it in DirectX except when using hardware full screen mode. VDJ does not use it anyway. Never mind on that though. If you set video and skin FPS to 30 in VDJ you will most likely not get 30 FPS but something like 32 to 33 which is not an exact multiple of 60. This causes choppy behavior because it would be missing frames but it is best scene when scrolling something horizontally. You will not notice it when playing a video most of the time. If you make either the skin or video FPS something other than 60, then that can interrupt the other and also cause choppy behavior. It is possible to achieve an exact 30 FPS but not in the arbitrary way VDJ is doing it. The timing is critical and can vary depending on several factors.
This smoothness factor has nothing to do with what a practical frame rate for a video might be. Normally 25 frames per second is fine for a video but that is not relevant to achieving smoothness in this case.
There are some other factors but not going into it now. Also the skin drawing has always been a burden on your machine in VDJ8. If you have a fast machine and good GPU you won't notice it too much. They are addressing this with experimental skin drawing but it is not complete yet and can be a problem depending on your OS setup and some other things.

So for all you busy DJs who purchased the 7000 early, how are the switches holding up?

And, if I may add, all the controller features in my workflow are flawlessly supported by VDJ. MC7k with VDJ has never failed me!

The time I had a situation akin to yours was when, unknowingly, I accidentally nudged the crossfader with the back of my hand to the other side, so it was complete silence. First time it happened in a gig, I thought it was the power to the speakers but after half-a-minute of checking, I realized that it was dumb me.
But yours I understand happened unattended. Human error aside, it's a solid piece of equipment and, as I've said, VDJ works with it flawlessly.
