    Help! I need to create a flashing neon sign and I am tearing my hair out trying to work out how to do it. Does anyone out there know how to do it or know of a resource site with instructions? It needs to look fairly realistic and not cartoonish. Please help before I go bald!

    The way I've done this effect in the past in Flash is to make a copy of your vector image/outline, then soften edges to give the copy a glow. Make the copy into a movie clip and script a random alpha between 1 and 100 on enterFrame, and place it directly over the original. This will give you an animated blinking glow effect.
