Instead of shiftening the perspective you could also shift the TV. Ebivison did this with Merlin Walls, maybe they had the same problems.

I don't like it at all too, it's getting even worse when you're using PAL. But I'm mostly playing with z26, so there's another idea for a new option: anti-flicker.
