@crinrict I wasn’t sure if a screenshot would work or a video so you could see what’s happening with the graphics. I had an issue with CAS and the animation of the sim not matching the audio and the graphics were way off and someone asked me to take a video of what was happening and post it so they could see. I wasn’t sure how to do that with Windows or if it would help try to solve what’s going on.
I don't work or have any association with EA. I give advice to the best of my knowledge and cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your computer/game.
Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
@Celinecutecat Yes. I’ve done all of that. Repaired my game, taken my mods folder out, played a brand new game with a brand new sims folder, cleared all of my cache files.
Even a brand new game with a completely new sims folder still does this. As I mentioned I noticed this after DU came out. I notice the issue more if I’m playing a realm of magic save where this issue with graphics doesn’t just affect sims taking photos but the animation of sims practicing magic as well.
I have the same issue, & had it on the old PC & the new one. Freshly installed game on a newly built PC (without any mods) & I had the issue happen in a brand new save.
Normally clicking the ellipse in the top right & opening the game menu will right the problem immediately.
It's worse after using the tripod, but it happens when taking any photos.
I started a freelance photography game and noticed the same issue. Framerate becomes almost unplayable for a while. It eventually clears up. I'll try the workaround Simvasion suggested.

I just started noticing this problem, though it's possible it was happening before today. (Latest patch installed is Nov 19, 2020). I realize this is an old thread, but I just wanted to chime in to say that it's definitely still happening in my game, exactly as the OP described. I have NO mods and NO CC.
I don't take a lot of photos, but I see this too randomly when doing "paint from reference". The workaround is the same as all the other frame drop bugs: open game options, hit apply without changing anything, and the framerate instantly recovers. Still obnoxious though.
