Annoying Orange Flash

For a while now I've been getting a really annoying bright orange and white flash when people near me jump through gates, warp into towers etc.
Is this a real effect or a clitch? If it is an effect its pretty badly displayed.

Couldn't get a screenie of it, its too fast.

Getting exactly the same thing and it seems to be mostly when around multiple Amarr ships.. it's incredibly annoying - when landing into a largeish amarr fleet, the room turns into a press conference/disco.

Also experiencing white flashes when I blow up NPC ships. The effect seems to be very near
the virtual camera from my viewing location although the ship got blown up 30km away.
Some impressive gigantic starburst effect glitches.

Peace is the way of my war.

same strange "flashes" here.
almost short after warping or npc respawns in missions.

never change a running system!

I got a few last night but not an excessive amount.

Has anyone tried turning HDR off when using anti aliasing (or the other way, turn off AA and only use HDR)?

Same here, was very crazy in an Armor BS fleet today.

ATI Radeon HD 5700 Graphics

tried using both AA + HDR, either one and both off, no impact
