When I went test my game on Stencyl 3.5 beta on the (full screen) Mac platform, I observed a noticeable amount of screen tear. For some reason anytime I tried to take a picture of the bug the issue would be fixed momentarily until I was finished taking a picture. I tried it afterward with the latest version of Stencyl and the bug is still there. I noticed that the bug won’t appear in non full screen mode.

Are you using a retina monitor? Can you try with the latest build? Apparently there are some fixes in our third-party libraries for retina monitors on macOS, but I don't have one so I can't confirm.

Sorry if I wasn't super clear about it, but I did try the newest version after. Regarding the monitor, I couldn't find anything about the type of monitor that a MacBook Air uses (but I'm not sure it's the issue). However, I do have some more info/things that I think would be useful: 1. This issue has only occurred whenever I use hand drawn graphics as opposed to CG ones (I'm wondering if it is just a lot for Stencyl but I'm not sure), 2. I have attached a phone video showing off the issue in action (don't know why I didn't do this before), 3. I actually have a game that contains this issue too (Link: https://nerdinanutshell.itch.io/puffy-man-demo (it's the one called Super Speeding Puffy)).  Hope this helps you get to the bottom of this.

Looks like a vsync issue? Seems to go away when you play the game in windowed mode. Perhaps fullscreen is disabling vsync somehow.

It might be... but it also happened when another person played the game I linked so I’m not sure. I feel like full screen is very nice to use, but it’s doable without. Thanks anyway.
