Default Water flickering with dynamic weather clouds

I'm seeing water flickering when using dynamic weather under heavy cloud cover. The issue doesn't occur with static weather clouds. The flicker usually starts a few minutes after starting a flight and is only visible from inside the cockpit. If you flip to external view there is no flickering. I've tested this with a variety of aircraft and they all do it. The issue is present in both open beta and stable release.

Is anyone else seeing this? I want to use dynamic weather but I can't stand it with this flickering. I'm running 1440p resolution with G-Sync, no VR. I've tested it with a variety of DCS settings and system config and nothing seems to get rid of it. Reducing water detail level down to medium or low helps but it still flickers where the water is reflecting the sun.

Here's a video I made of it...

I also get this in OB with dynamic weather using the rift in the same scenarios you mentioned. I used to get the black flickering until a couple of updates ago.

We need as many replies to this thread as possible to get attention. Otherwise I suspect this won't be fixed anytime soon by ED. If you have this issue, please reply to the thread with details!

Thanks

This is a desaster! Static weather causes performance problems, is not mp friendly and has clouds dissapearing, while dynamic weather is a pain to set up and comes with flickering.
So daytime, clear sky aviation until it finally gets patched in 2021?!

Default [REPORTED]Water Flickering (NOT screen flickering)

This is a separate issue than the black screen flicker reported https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=227646.

Since the 13FEB update I've noticed water flickering--some others have described it as "jelly water"--on Caucasus and PG from inside the cockpit of the Hornet and MiG-21. I do not get water flickering from the Harrier cockpit. I do not get water flickering from external views. For whatever reason it is only when looking through cockpit glass on certain modules.

Video of phenomenon:

I started a thread about this recently also. Are you using dynamic weather in that video? In my experience I can only reproduce the flickering with dynamic weather clouds in certain situations. Static weather clouds don't do it.

Yep, using dynamic weather in this clip, and most of my missions recently. I haven't flown static weather in a while.
