Looking for light flicker effect (like in SNL Intro)

I'm looking for a modern light flicker effect, usually found in fast montages. The best example I can provide is the Saturday Night Live intro, among the b-roll shots of New York City night life. In most cases it's used as a transition. It looks a little bit like the light flicker you find at the end of a reel of film. Any tricks or plugins for FCP you know of would be huge. Thanks!

Sorry, I haven't seen SNL in ages. Take a look at the Flashframe Filter in this Free Final Cut Pro Plug-ins article and see if that helps.

Thanks. It's not really a flash frame, it's more, the image flashes a few times, then goes out. Like the slightly exposed tail-end of a reel of film would, right before it cuts.

Creative COW is offering a big limited time discount on the Rampant FilmFX package. Take a look at the link provided and scroll down. There is a Youtube video that shows some samples. Is this what you are thinking about?

You're the man. This is exactly what I was looking for, and "light leaks" seems to be the key phrase. Thanks a lot!
