When you're working in After Effects, there are times when you want to create a flickering effect, perhaps to simulate a light bulb flickering or a screen glitch. The flicker expression is a powerful tool that can help you achieve this without the tedious task of setting numerous opacity keyframes.
The flicker expression in After Effects is used to create a blinking or flickering effect on a layer. Instead of manually animating the opacity of a layer using keyframes, you can use this expression to automate the process. This is especially useful when you want to make adjustments or create a consistent flickering effect across multiple layers.
It's at this juncture that your vision can truly come together. If you've set everything up correctly, you'll have all the options and avenues you'd ever want to achieve the right look. Using the flicker expression, you can dial everything in and add the exact vibe you were aiming for. The idea is to have everything set up in such a way that you can make the majority of your creative decisions at this phase. It makes it so easy to iterate, customize, and achieve the exact feeling you were going for.
