    Default How to make text blink/flash?

    I'm using Elements 4.0. I know how to add text to video but i don't know how that make the text blink, i can't find that effect. Is there any plug-in or am i missing something?

    Default Try this

    whilst viewing your video close and then re-open your eyes at a rapid pace this should give you the effect your after.

    That's what I would do unless you had After Effects and then you could write a short expression to do it.

    I don't really know Elements... but it's dead easy on After Effects!

    in your text layer, type 'T' for transparency, 'Alt click' on the stopwatch to access the formula, enter this:
    x = Math.sin(time*10);
    if (x<0) 0 else 100

    If you're only needing your text to flash on and off here's the easiest way... just splice the text clip into short pieces, like 5-10 frames each (depends how flashy you want the text), then separate each piece with some empty/dead space.
