It does work.

Another tip....

If you want the blinking to be constant you need only key the first on/off cycle and then, with the light selected, open the graph editor (Window > Animation Editors > Graph Editor), select the intensity curve and in the curves menu set pre and post infinity to cycle. your light will now blink at the same rate for ever (or at least the length of your animation!!).

Take it easy,

Mat.
