Post subject:  Flicker GoPro d/t White Balance

On my trip to the south west of USA I used also the GoPro Hero3 black for time lapses.
The big problem is: everything is automatic - at least at that time I couldn't set the White Balance to CamRaw for Photos (and CamRaw sets anyway the WB automatically) .
This means that I get deflicker even after the two-pass deflicker method with LRTimelapse. I suppose that the deflicker in this case is due to the automatic changing of the color temperature settings during the time lapse. It doesn't seem to be an exposure flickering.
Looking at the curves in LRTimelapse they seem to be ok but when I export the film with the LRT templates it flickers and the color space of the film seems to be different to the edited Jpegs in LR.
Also noticing that in the second half of the film (the last 10 seconds) there are no flickering issues.
Does anybody has an idea how to solve the problem? Are there magic plug-ins for WB deflickering? I

Here is the link to the exported film http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_hEVORus3k



Thanks!

Thanks, yes I know the settings. BUT it applies only to video files, not the jpegs. And this CamRaw update came only after I took the lapse. By the way, I tested it. The GoPro still makes jpegs so I am not sure if the GoPro people know what RAW means....
