Sorry, wasn't thinking. Meant question. Though I think it as obvious and you didn't need to say that.

In CompositeLab:

Add a brightness filter and crank it up every few frames.

You could use a Gamma or Lightness filter for the same thing.

In EffectsLab:
You could use a large Optic or Neon Light to cover the frame, and animate the intensity of the effect to make it flash.


It kind of depends on what sort of flash you are trying to achieve. A black frame flashing to white might use different techniques than a frame of action that is intended to get brighter, as if a light is flashing in the scene.

Sorry that wasn't meant as a dig at you. The word [Answer] is added to the title of a post by the moderators once it has been fully answered. I was having a dig at the moderators for adding the [Answer] before anyone had helped you! Apologies again for any confusion.
