I have seen this effects numerous times in music videos and TV commercials where 2 images very quickly alternate. I recreated the effect by making hold keyframes with 0 and 100 opacity values on the top layer.
At about 53 seconds into the video the strobing sequence is using 3 different clips. I was wondering is there an expression that can do this. Also in the music video the strobing APPEARS to be in sync with drums, so I was thinking that there must be keyframes created by an audio amplitude setting in a plug-in like BeatReactor or SoundKeys.
I'm also assuming that this effect would be best done in AE instead of Premiere maybe I'm wrong and it is just one frame of video showing on two or three different layers in Premiere
Would love to know the various ways this effect could be achieved and which you consider the method to use.
Thanks in Advance

You are aware that there is a Strobe effect in AE, I hope, and that likewise, the Blend effect can avoid adding tons of layers.... Can't see your video due to copyright restrictions here in Germany, but I'm sure using these 2 effects may help a lot. For audio (and markers) triggering, refer to this:
