So I am trying to edit a project, but every time I put a transition in it seems to flicker or flash kinda ruining the effect. I can't seem to find a fix for this anywhere so I thought I would start a discussion and ask if anyone knows how to sort it. I've left an example of what I'm seeing.

Not to the video footage no, this is just unaltered footage and a normal cross dissolve transition

Try resetting the preferences:

FAQ: How to reset preferences in Premiere Pro?

If that doesn't work, try resetting the Workspaces:

Reset a workspace

Reset the current workspace to return to its original, saved layout of panels.

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Click the Workspace menu icon and select Reset to Saved Layout.
    • Choose Window > Workspace > Reset to Saved Layout.

from here:

https://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/using/workspaces.html

If that doesn’t work ,try updating or rolling back your graphics driver directly from the video card manufacturer’s site.

Only installed it yesterday, so I don't think it's the preferences as I haven't messed with them. My graphics card is up to date and working fine with everything else.

Hi TazerUrbex,

Please try to switch the Renderer to Mercury Playback Engine Software Only and check if it's working properly.

I am having the same issue, flashing when using cross dissolve transitions.   

problem exists on just plain pics with no other effects on them.

never has done that in past versions of Premiere Pro.

I changed the rendering but it didn't fix the problem.

Any additional help is appreciated

I have the same problem. A screenrecording, on top a black color layer with 80% opacity, masked with a rectangle. This layer comes in with a simple cross transition and it flickers (only the incoming transition). Tried several things like only software rendering or deselect "composite in linear color" in the sequenz settings. Also deleted media cache. Nothing helped.

 

This happens both with Premiere 14 and 13.

 

I cannot belive that there is no solution.

The only work around I have found is to render as a Quicktime file. I was previously trying to add a simple cross dissolve transition over a PNG image. When rendered as an MP4 I get the flickering on the image from the transition. Really frustrating - have seemed to try everything suggested and nothing fixing issue..

The only workaround that I found was that the problem video and effects was actually b-roll over an interview/studio recording. By replacing the "A-roll" with a fresh clip (same piece, just re-laid), it took care of the glitch. It's not taking care of the problem of there being a glitch, but at least it's a workaround for the moment (until the next glitch).  I may find that I have to lay in ALL of the effects in the B-roll befoe replacing the A-roll.
