Smooth Line tool issues

Hi, I am trying to smooth out some contours using the Smooth Line tool in ArcGIS Pro 2.4.1. Each time I run the tool with the PAEK algorithm, an attribute table is produced with with my contour data but the geometry is all <null>. It's weird because it takes awhile to perform the process but it still produces no geometry.  I decided to try the Bezier algorithm and still got the same result - a bunch of nothing.


I saw this thread from a long time, it sounds like people have had the same issue without any resolve:

smooth line Help 


Background: I have a large plot of land (>400 acres) with LiDAR data that is high resolution. I made contour lines out of this and I get a ton of jagged edges and lots of sorta irrelevant points (it's thick and dense - like 35,000 lines). I just want to smooth it down and make it look nice!


Any ideas?


Oh, and why is it when I zoom in that my lines get chunky and don't change based on scale? Is that a new feature?
