Screen Flicker on Transition

Hi, there was a thread on this topic last year but I couldn't find a resolution. I have created a screen sequence with multiple buttons on a page. Pressing each button takes you to a new screen with the identical backgrond, just the button highlighted and a text screen. (I'm trying to create a similar effect to the Engage Labelled Graphic interaction). In PPT everything works seamlessly but as soon as I publish I get a momentary when I move between screens even though the background is identical. I'm only using one Slide Manster to greate the slides (multiple SM pages was a possible issue suggested in an earlier thread)

Hi Charles

The background is actually the slide master background with objects (the buttons) applied on top. The buttons are in two states - as the attachment shows but essentially I'm looking at the same background the whole time. What's even more frustrating is that occasionally a transition won't flash - it's as if it has cached the background, but then drops it again.
