As many who have processed raw video with Adobe Camera Raw will know, the fill light and recovery sliders can cause flickering when the white and black points in a shot are not static.  This makes it frustrating to create a log look.  I have spent some time trying to create a near-identical look to a fill light and recovery flat profile using the tone curve instead.  I have not done extensive testing but I'm quite certain that the SafeFlat profile will not produce any flicker, as it doesn't use the problematic sliders. 

Here is a video showing a shot first with a fill light and recovery flat profile causing flicker, and then the same shot with the SafeFlat tone curve profile and zero flicker:

As you can see in the video, using the recovery and fill light sliders caused an unwanted 0.5-1~ stop exposure jump which would be a headache to correct manually.

Hope this can help some people (:
