Hi Philipp

This may or may not contradict what you are saying, but I have been developing with JavaFX on my Mac for two years now, and I have not experienced the judder you mention in the app I am building.

I don't know if there is a special API in Cocoa for getting smoother, more often updated values or if it's just a matter of interpolation. It feels alien to scroll in JavaFX on Mac right now.
