I have used these techniques as well Rob, but depending on how bad the
flicker is, there might be an easy way....  In the past I have sent this
type of problem to the Flame ( Inferno) to remove every other frame in the
scene, and then double the remaining ones. Sometimes it can be done on a
field basis, and sometimes it takes more massaging... There is a simple tool
in the software to split out frames / fields but I don't remember the
specifics of how it works....but for most simple flickers this has worked
for me.   Then again, I could be crazy, it's choliday time and I'm going out
of my mind.........

Hope all is well,
Best of the season to all,
