          im sure that effect is done on the timeline.
          one way to create that would be, to have the blue BG on the bottom layer... and a white rectangle over the blue BG, with Alpha set to 0%

          Then you just add keyframes to the points where you want it to flash white, and set the alpha to 100%, and afew frames later, set the alpha back to 0%, then add a Motion Tween to the frames from 100% to 0%.
          That would make the white rectangle slowly fade away, leaving only the blue BG.

          repeat the process for as many flashes as you want.
