How to remove flickering/banding from Intel Realsense D435i RGB camera?

I'm currently working on a machine vision application. I'm experiencing a flickering effect on the images taken from the RGB camera. A good example of my issue is explained in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FLQMvDfERrs

 

I need to eliminate this flickering as it is affecting my ability to analytically process each color image. At first I thought this could be fixed by enabling the auto-exposure of the camera, but it did not fix it.

 

Has anyone ever experienced this issue? I've noticed that the Intel Realsense Viewer also shows the flickering for a brief moment... but then fixes it somehow. Are there specific settings for the camera that can remove this? Thanks.

Hi @BDavi44​ RealSense questions are now handled at the forum at the link below.

In regard to your current question: if you have fluorescent lights such as ceiling strip lights in the location that the camera is in then that may cause noise on the image, because the gas inside the light flickers at a rate hard to see with the human eye. Using a frames per second (FPS) speed close to the operating frequency of the lights may help. For some lights it is 30 FPS and for others it is 60 FPS.
