Im am going to ask some obvious questions first. Do you have a Dreamscape sun in your scene? Are there any other lights in the scene besides the Dreamscape sun? What settings to you have for your Rendering Environment for Dreamscape? What settings are you using for rendering? Which codec? Any info you can give us will help us help you.

Your settings for Dreamscape are very unlikely to be your problem with the flicker. I still need more information before I can help you. Do you have a Dreamscape sun in your scene? The sun is located under create light panel under the Dreamscape dropdown. If you have any other lights in the scene, try disabling them and rendering your scene. Also you should try another codec, perhaps DivX for your .avi's or Sorenson3 for your quicktime .mov's. Lastly if you can send us a sample scene of what you are working on. You can remove everything except the Dreamscape elements and post it for us to try rendering. Give these a shot and lets see what happens.

thanks again,yes there is a dreamscape sun in my scene ofcourse because dreamsape sky only works with dreamscape sun....there r no other lights in the scene....I cant send u the file through cgtalk since it does'nt support max formats so is it possible for u to let me know ur e-mail address so that i can send u in ur inbox....

Does it "flicker" or change color slightly every other frame? If it's the color that's changing, it's a bug. The work around is that once your happy with the settings for the sky, save the max file, close max. Restart max, load the scene and render. DO NOT edit the environment...if you do, you will need to save, close and restart again.
