    AAARRRGGGHHH! I'm at my wit's end with the flickery mp4 saves.

    I've used Pinnacle Studio 14 for years but thanks to Bill Gates' diabolical plan of engineered obsolescence I was forced to upgrade my OS and hence my Pinnacle Studio software too. I am now using PS22 Plus. I recently made a short video from drone footage my brother in law shot for his company's picnic. This is for a rather large company so a good production that makes a favorable impression might lead to other opportunities. I assembled my movie without any problems and burned it to a disc for playback in DVD players and that works perfectly BUT he'd like it as a high definition MP4 on a thumbdrive. Sounds easy enough but alas such is not the case. Playback from the MP4 files, whether from my hard drive or from the flash drive, has several portions that are jittery, flashy or jerky. It appears the problems are happening during export. I re-rendered the movie but that didn't fix anything. I used the HD720 preset @ 30 FPS. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. I'm half tempted to fire up my old XP machine and do this in PS14.

    What is your hardware acceleration setting in Control panel of Studio ?

    What is the bitrate of the exported file?  Right click, Properties, Details, Data Rate & Total bitrate.

    Should be 12000 kbps. Way enough for a 720p @ 30 fps H.264 file.

    I was thinking greater than 40000 - 45000, causing any playback device without hardware acceleration to drop frames.

    I replied 12000 because that's the value of the preset in PS22.
