Probably converter as you suspect but I have heard of an isolated incident or two where simply changing fluid stopped what appeared to be TCC shudder, especially when old fluid is quite old. I'm with the other guy, I change fluid every 60-70K. Keep it red, not orange and certainly not brown.

I'd be using correct fluid, the manufacturers are using some pretty specialized clutch friction materials these days and the fluid will be matched.
