"Yeah, I remembered that after my post. Wear Black  shirts, and marking the floor with tape where you stand to click the frame grab can help. My production is 100% LEDs, but I dont' know enough about LED tech to know that they …"

"Lots of great suggestions about cameras and lights. I'll suggest a 3rd source of flicker- the animator. If the animator isn't standing in completely dark void when they're taking a frame, then they are part of the lighting scheme.…"
