I finally figured out how to stop the flickering!

After too many hours and too many redo-shots (nearly 20!), I finally figured out the right exposure settings to put flickering to a minimal!

Here is the result of the final redo-shots. Almost no flickering!


  1. Great news for viewers with epilepsy!

    I love the smoke effect, and the waving quiff.

  2. Ha!!

    that tiny clip made me laugh out loud!!

    great news man on working that out...its important.


  3. What you ended up doing for his hair is great. It's too bad Dragon's giving you issues, I love the program. Just make sure camera is full Manual, and you stand/sit in the same area each frame while dragon's shooting its 27 different shots.

  4. Wow no flickering! I have had the problem too for a long while now and I think it was because of too many light sources around.

  5. To combat the problem of flickering, I don't stop down past 5.6 and stay zoomed out or stop down a lot to 8 something and use a long exposure (depending on the needs of the shot). On the Canon Rebel XS, I haven't had much at all.
