So i rendered out a sequence of particles with HV's attached to them. Frame by frame it all appears groovy, but when I render it out it's all jittery and poopy looking. Why??? I'm seriously lost, i've tried rendering with/without motion blur, changed my HV settings as well as my particle settings but it constantly comes out jittery.

Thanks in advance!

Did you save out a PFX? If you don't save out the particle motions, jittering is a symptom you'll get.

I did not, i'll try this now. I rarely use particles in LW so I was unaware of this. The last thing I did with particles was this https://vimeo.com/20150579 and that was years ago, also rendered on a render farm but I don't recall saving out a pfx file. Maybe I did, my memory sucks.

Nice wine animation there.

for jittering, did you have vibration on? that could cause it, it might help also turning of align to path.
