I am running a show using Watchout 5.5.1 and six displays. All of the show cues are linear, and so are simply lined up one after another in the main timeline, with a pause cue at the beginning of each video cue. The video cues are relatively short (5-20 seconds on average), and are all pre-split using video proxies. They are .mp4 (H.264) files. I am experiencing some signficant flickering (a quick flash of a black screen) for various displays every time the show reaches one of the pause cues. On many pause cues, one or more displays go completely black for a fraction of a second before restoring the appropriate still image. Different displays flicker each time a pause occurs, usually more than one, but they are not consistently the same displays. I am running six display computers, all completely tweaked for Windows 7: Dell Latitude E6500 Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.4GHz 4GB DDR2 RAM 64 GB SSD 1920x1200 Display NVidia Quadro NVS Graphics Windows 7 Pro SP1 x64 Watchout 5.5.1 The flickering doesn't occur on every cue, but for many of them. I have tried re-rendering the resolution of the cues down by half, just to see if this was related to a performance issue on the display computers' part, but lowering the resolution has virtually no effect. The video cues all seem to play fine, except for the flickering at the pause cues, which is very distracting (this is a theatrical application, the cues appear on a very large backdrop, so the flickering is very noticeable). I have no idea on what to try, or check next. Any thoughts? Regards, Rick
