Stylized Earth: Flickering Render

I have a stylized planet earth. When I rendered a few frames I noticed flickering. I think I have some pretty high settings for final gather. Not sure if its the render settings, the textures or the the 1 Sky Portal I have in the scene? If anyone can check out the images and youtube video it would be greatly appreciated. I am not sure what the problem is? Thank you for any replies!

In your Renderer settings, what do you have displace "edge length" set to?

if it's above 1 it will likely cause geometry to flicker.

I didn't change the settings in that area of the render dialogue so that must just be default? But yes, it is above 1. This is what it is set as:

-View is checked and Smoothing is checked
-Edge length:2.0 pixels
-Max. Displace 1'8.0
-Max Subdiv 16k

What do you suggest for the settings on this? Thank you

Edit: I have never actually read up on this area of the render dialogue.

0.7 gets really good results. Give that a try and see if it fixes your issues.

If not then it just might be Arch & Design shader being buggy.

Thank you for the help. I'll try that out now and render a few frames.

Could it also have anything to do with the Advanced area in the IL render section? There is a option for Noise filtering(speckle Reduction) and its on standard?
