I keep getting a weird flicker
on my character surface.
Here is a sample-avi (top view):

the neck/shoulder area have these blinking squares, this problem is also there in other areas of the model.

Any suggestions ?

Are you using shadow maps?

yes, I have two spotlights with shadowmaps and one distant light in the scene. Is that something that should be avoided ?

Increase the size of the shadowmaps and maybe make tighten up the cone angle on the spots.

See if that fixes anything.

uncon / Rumors > many many thanks - that seems to be it. I was totally stuck in thinking it was a mesh / poly problem.
