Blink effect but not created using layer?

Apr 29, 2019

Does anyone have idea of how to create blinking effect that do blinking of a group of object within the same layer?

Will only work on one object though, because it requires the use of State changes. For grouped objects, you may need to consider right-clicking the group and choosing 'Export shape as picture' first and then reimporting it so you can create a state change as desired.

Hi, another way you can do it is to use the timeline - you create the first object and it lasts for .75 of a second. Then you create another identical one in the same spot that starts right after the first one finishes and it lasts for .75 of a second, and then a third one - you can repeat for as many 'blinks' as you want and then add a last one that stays for the duration of the timeline. I've attached an image of how it works - this one has the green ring surrounding the number blinking twice and then staying in place for the duration of the timeline - so that the learner's eye is drawn to it.

I am sure you could set it up for a group of objects as well - you would just need to align them on the timeline.
