Fix VIDEO FLICKER in 30 Seconds WITHOUT Plugins


The actual method really does take only about 30 seconds. I’ve included additional info as well in the video so that you can get even more out of this trick, so that’s why the video is longer than 30 seconds. 🙂

This method of removing video flicker is a variation of a method I first learned from Philip Bloom, which I ended up using extensively (and adapting as-needed) when working with slow motion footage that I shot in Europe this past May.

The best way to deal with flicker is to shoot in such a way that you don’t have it in your footage in the first place. This can be done by ensuring your frame rate and shutter speed are offset from the speed of a flickering light source, such as LEDs or Fluorescent lights.

But what if you’ve shot something and you didn’t realize there were flickering lights until you were reviewing the footage later? In this case, here’s a quick trick that can help fix it. This won’t work in all scenarios, but it’s an easy first step to take to see if it works.

I hope this was helpful!

All camera footage (aka non-screen recordings) in this video was shot on the Panasonic GH5:
With a Voigtlander 25mm f0.95:
And a RODE Stereo Videomic X:

Here’s the equipment I use regularly to make my videos:

  1. Found the same issue when watched and glad to see comment of Mathieu Lalonde 🙂
    It does not matter how many layers you mix. if you want equal mixing then second layer needs to be 50%, third – 33%, forth – 25%, fifth – 20%, etc. Basically each next layer Opacity = 100% divided by number of the Layer on top of the original one.

    Btw it's easy to check if you mix for example Red, Green, Blue solids and check resulted color. 🙂

    I love this method to denoising some footage, sometimes upto 10 layers.

  2. You could also just use the right shutter speed when filming to not get this flicker fixing it in post is not a good idea.

  3. Ive stacked the layers but my slide tool doesn't seem to move any frames? the preview doesn't change, and the timecode shows 00:00:00 however far I drag, any ideas? thanks

  4. im having trouble understanding this, i see in your effect controls that you have a tab named "anti-flicker filter"- what is that? it does not show on my project when i follow the exact steps of this video…..would really appreciate some help!

  5. I've tryed wit copy just one time, 50%.. but that's not enought… just those couple of adjustaments and the magic is done! You are an ace!

  6. Short and to the point! Nice! (I hate it when someone stretches out a 45 second explanation into a 12 minute video!)

  7. hello can i ask a doubt ? why i meet with lightning clips when i color grade in resolve it just gives some bad blinking outputs

  8. Why does my footage look like motion blur and ghost effect, maybe because its fast motion movement. How can I fix this?
