Background image trembling while transition filter at Chrome

When I change blur filter, image trembles a little bit.

Here is demo at jsfiddle. Please click twice on button at demo

body {
    background-color: #000;

body::before {
    content: "";
    position: absolute;
    top: 0;
    left: 0;
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;
    opacity: 0.4;
    z-index: -1;
    background: url( center no-repeat;
    background-size: cover;
    transition: filter 2s;
body.blurred::before {
    filter: blur(30px);

I am using Chrome 63.0.3239.84 on Mac with non-Retina display.

I see many similar question, but no one answer helps me

    I cheated problem using transition by steps, not smoothly

    transition-timing-function: steps(10, end);

    It is not a solving, it is a cheating and can be applied not everywhere.
    I can't explain it, but it works for me.
