Flickering slides

I’m preparing a talk using this template. When I added figures, the slides started flickering,

It’s especially bad near the end. I think it might be because the figures are too large, but they all seem 5 - 20KB (svgs), which shouldn’t be a problem, right?

Does anyone know what might be happening?

If it only happens in Chrome on a MacBook display, I suspect you’re running into this Chrome bug (previously discussed here).


  • use Firefox or Safari
  • disable either:
    • chrome://flags/#site-isolation-trial-opt-out
    • chrome://flags#enable-gpu-rasterization

Yep, that seems to be the issue – it works on firefox and safari. Thank you for pointing me to the discussion.
