Grainy/Flickering renders

I am batch rendering my scene, a train interior model with some animation, a directional light and two area lights. When I put all my renders together in afx, everything is grainy and the grainy look flickers a little. I have adjusted the quality in render settings and final gather settings. What else could be causing this?

Thank you.

Final Gather flicker aside, which does not sound to be your problem, it's likely the sampling on the area light is too low.
