Why does a 2D animation export from Pro keep flickering?

I have been creating animations of 2D line features though time and when I export the animations the features in the videos will randomly flicker. I have noticed this with other feature types as well. I have tried many varieties of export formats ranging from draft files, 1920x1080 to 4k at all the fps options and I have tried all of those export options on different data and different machines with different versions of ArcGIS Pro. Every single exported file inevitably at many random points in the animation flicker.


The data I have been using is stored and edited on an SDE. I have tried copying the data locally to a file geodatabase and as shape files and all the data types produce the same results.

My question is: Why is this happening, is it a bug or a setting somewhere that should be disable or enabled? How can I export an animation that does not flicker without having to export as a png sequence and edit the offending individual frames?

If anyone here can help me I would be extremely grateful!
