[Cin] Fade black flash

Honestly, I never see a flash and I have tried several variations based on
your description with the "fade in text parameter" being the easiest.  I
did do a recording of it and planned to show that but the recording does
not do a precise capture job so you can not tell it is working correctly.
There was no flash when playing at normal speed and then I tried single
stepping and still no flash.

I will try attaching a screenshot of how to set this up easily with the
hopes that you can try that.  Basically, I just created about 3 seconds of
nothing and added a Title plugin making sure to set the Fade parameter on
the Title menu to 3.0 seconds (I use the reset button first to make sure
there are no leftover weird settings).
