How can I add a random flickering to a picture?

Asked by XOIIO (18246points) January 6th, 2011

I have a picture of the aperture science logo glowing a blue-green, how can I add random flickering to it so that it looks like a faulty computer display. Not flickering constantly, but the kind in movies where it’s normal, lines/ static go over it and it returns to normal again.

I want to use it as a dreamscene background, and as a screensaver. I know how to convert a .wmv into a .scr.

Can any of you help me?

Trying to do this with the nbeon sign effect in adobe flash, i just need to wait for the download to finish.

I would think creating a .gif would be ideal. I’m a biased Gimp user, but if you download Gimp (which is free), it has .gif creating capabilities. You can do it frame by frame, and it’s actually very simple. Have you ever done that before? Do you have any experience with creating graphics?
I’m not familiar with flash, so I can’t offer advice on that much, sorry.

Go to the following site:

and in the search field type in Picture Start 02: clip 07

That should help. If not you can browse around that site and you’ll love what you see.
