I thought this would make a great resource for anyone trying to create flicker free animations with Mental Ray.

1. Animating scenes with no moving objects

Flicker-Free Animation with FG Lock (http://www.4da-inc.com/mental_ray/mr101/index.html)

2.Animating scenes with moving objects

A. Render the animation using one of the above methods for the background

B. Render the animation again with Read/Write and Read only FG Unchecked for the foreground objects

C. Render a Mask to blend the two animation together.

(Note the above is something I picked up from Zap)
