Make my owl blink on a slide
I've read through some of the other blogs regarding blinking objects or "next" buttons, but couldn't quite find what I needed. I want my owl to blink a few times on a slide, not continuously. I experimented with triggers: I inserted a two black circles, once covering each eye. I made their "normal" state invisible, and "flashing" state black. I added 4 triggers to each eye, using 1/4 second intervals to change the black circles from invisible to black, and then again.
This works, but is time consuming to build. And, I want to add more blinks. Is there an easier way to do this, so that I can add a few more owl blinks? I like the effect and will want to use it elsewhere.
