Im working on a video and in the intro I want a few images to blip with a noisy or static like appearance for a few seconds. Any ideas on how to make a image flicker like this?
Thanks

There are TONS of techniques for doing this, and they all have different looks to them, so there's a good chance that the ones people suggest may not have the look you had in mind. If you can describe the look you seek in as much detail as possible, it'll help a lot.

Basically I have three images (like logos) and I want them to take it in turns to appear in about 5-10 seconds. I was thinking of having it so each one flickers in and maybe looks like there is static interference. But the main effect I want to create is the flicker.
Any suggestions welcome as I am willing to try anything
Thanks

From yesterday:

From today:

Dude, you just rearranged the words. You didn't elaborate. We're not mind readers. Nobody here graduated from the Amazing Kreskin Institute of Clairvoyance.

Off the top of my head, I can think of about five different looks, all of which could be defined as "flicker". Right now I can think of three looks that could fall under the "static" category. I bet none of them would look anything like what you're seeing when you think of "flicker" or "static".

Until you can describe what you see in your head IN DETAIL, or find a couple of YouTube examples of what you mean, we're not going to be of much help.

If you're just looking for a little bit of "static", then maybe the Add Grain effect will be a good place to start.
