Flashing PowerPoint Slide

We urgently need to find out if it is possible, and if so, how to make a slide flash continuously. We are going to use a projector and we need one slide to keep flashing at the end. Is this possible?

Use a quicktime or avi authoring program to make simple 3 or four frame blinking movies out of the objects on your last slide, then set them to continuous play in the custom animation settings.

This question was awarded, but never cleared due to the JSP-500 errors of that time.  It was "stuck" against userID -1 versus the intended expert whom you awarded.  This corrects the problem and the expert will now receive these points; points verified.
