Hi There

Is the BMC prone to flickering with certain, striped outfits? Namely, the outfit under http://kostuemania.ch/wp/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Western-Old-style-Gentleman.jpg? Thank's for any advice.

In a wide shot where the stripes become particularly thin, it may cause some moire, but you are best of doing a test with close-ups all the way back to extreme wide shots.

In my experience the patterns need to be much finer than this to be problematic, but mostly I try to avoid fine patterned shirts and straw hats in my productions.

Moire is a known issue. This depends upon the specific line dimensions in any particular shot. Lens and distance changes can make it appear and disappear. There are some post production reductions for color pattern noise on the site you could search. The luminance moire is much less noticeable, if any color noise is suppressed.
