    Help with Pinnacle Studio HD version 15 ?

    Hi there,

    Not sure if this is the correct forum for this question, but I own Pinnacle StudioHD version

    I'm creating a 16:9 interlaced hd slideshow video of photos set to music.  It is 1440x1080, 29.97 frame/sec.

    I use a dissolve transition between photos, and I often pan & zoom on them.  I also usually put the same photo in the timeline again for one second (using the "Match previous clip" feature to make it look like it is pausing after a zoom).

    When playing back the video there is nearly always one or two photos (out of 40) that have a quick one-time flicker in them during the pan & zoom - or maybe it's a problem when going to the 1-second copy of the picture.   This flicker is noticeable on the finished DVD - and it's usually noticeable when playing back inside Pinnacle.  It's not on every photo, and luckily it only happens one time during the pan & zoom (if I rewind the video, it will occur at the same spot).   Sometimes I can get rid of this flicker by slightly changing the amount of time that I show that particular picture - but then that often causes the one-time flicker to occur on another photo several minutes further into the video.  Very strange.  So it's very hard to get rid of them all.

    I have deleted auxillary files, and "enable hardware acceleration" is checked, and so is "enable background rendering".

    Any idea why this is happening - or how I can ensure it doesn't happen?
