I used Captivate 3 and a Pen Tablet to create a full motion
recorded video of me writing a word web. When I preview or publish
it however it flickers or flashes for most of it (but does stay
steady for some of it in the middle and then starts flickering
again). I have my hardware acceleration off and it is a standard
quality video. Can anyone help me to get my video to hold steady
(i.e. stop flashing). Thanks.
When Captivate records full motion, these end up as separate
clips that are loaded in succession. The base slide has a white
background color so I'm guessing you are seeing a split second of
white as the video loads up.
You might work past this by screen capturing the first frame
of the video and configuring it as the background image for each
slide. You might be able to use the Captivate Full Motion Editor to
do this. Either that or perhaps pause the playback and manually
grab the screen.

In addition to what Rick says, I've not found the full-motion
be so great at really capturing full motion like you
describe. Try capturing
the smallest possible screen area that still contains your
whould help performance.
If that still fails, you might find your only solution is try
screen capture tool to capture your animation faithfully -
