I am editing a music video in Final Cut Pro 7. I would like to create a random frame sequence, a flashing-frame effect to insert into the video.

Any ideas on how to create it?

What have you tried already? – Saaru Lindestøkke Dec 11 '13 at 10:49
frame by frame manually – goplastic Dec 11 '13 at 10:51
Ok, I'm not familiar with FCP7 but it should approximately work like this: Collect random frames in a folder, name them in the order you want them to appear (frame001, frame002, etc.) and import those images into FCP. The naming can be done with software. Here's a forum post explaining it. I will leave it to someone who has used FCP to write an actual answer. – Saaru Lindestøkke Dec 11 '13 at 11:00
are these frames images from elsewhere like photos, stills, artwork etc ? or have you exported each frame of the videos ? – Adam Mann Pro Dec 11 '14 at 17:08
