Appear and Disappear in PowerPoint 2010

I'm trying to have two moving points repeatedly appearing and disappearing consecutively. I can make the first point move for 1s and disappear the next 1s. However, that cannot be repeated. On the other hand, I cannot make the other point be invisible for 1s and then staying put the next 1s even once.  Is it at all possible to have the Disappear effect in a loop and do you have any idea how to make the second point delay its appearance? I tried it with the delay adjustment but I must be doing something wrong because I can't get it to work.

You are doing nothing wrong. There's no way to repeat a seies of animation retaining delays.

We have an add in that creates an animation that CAN ve repeated nut it's not free.

Thanks a lot. I was able to download and unzip it. Now I can make a dot periodically disappear at a preset interval. However, still can't figure out how to make the dot appear at a preset interval stay put for a moment and then disappear. Tried with superimposing a copy of the dot, filled white, by adding Disappear animation to it but the best I could do is have it blink once only after the first run. The first time it always blinks twice. Perhaps there might be some better method to achieve repeatedly blinking of dots only once at strictly set intervals. I need at least two dots blinking periodically one after another.

Now, I could make the dot appear with a delayed Appear and then have superimposed the same dot but filled white appear slightly later with slightly more delayed Appear. I can do this only once, however. If there's no way to keep repeating that I should only stay with what I already have.
