Flashing warnings on movies with flashing.

I’m watching Star Force - Fugitive Alien II, and I noticed a scene with a flashing special effect. It doesn’t bother me personally, but I know some people are sensitive to it. To support all members of the community, it would be good to have movies that have flashing effects in them labeled. Also, it would be good to add the ability to filter them out when searching in the Video Vault and Screening Bunker of the Virtual Theater.

Doesn’t the flashing have to happen at a certain frequency to potentially trigger a seizure?

There are a few factors at play when triggering photosensitive epilepsy. The frequency of the flashing is one. It’ll usually be somewhere in the 5Hz to 20Hz range but it differs from person to person.

Some people can experience migraines from flashes of light as well.

I’m not sure if it has to do with the fact that I’m legally blind or what but when lights flash rapidly I can hear it. Made concerts / raves very difficult back in the day
