    Hi all,

    New to this so bear with me.

    Have a Kam laserscan 1000 3d on which I am trying to project text using quickshow. Have also tried lw cs1000 rgb which demonstrates exactly the same issues.

    Text is appearing but cannot stop the flickering which is very much like a strobe. Have been through the help videos to little avail.

    Scan rate is 30,000 but even the shortest, most simple text will not stop flickering.

    Any ideas what I can do?

    Thanks in advance.

    If you are trying to display the included text objects from within QuickShow then I suspect your scanners are not rated for 30k scanning or you are somehow sending the text content to the hardware controller/laser twice (or more).

    The CS1000s are notorius for flickering images due to the rated speed of their scanners. I am not sure of the Kam unit but since both are showing this "issue" I would verify how your zones are routed and how the text is being routed to make sure you are not sending the text to a zone twice as this will cause the laser to draw the image with 2x the number of points it really needs to.
