  1. Place the cursor over the 'visibility property'
  2. Press I to insert a keyframe
  3. Go to the next frame, disable the visibility and press I again
  4. Go to the next frame, enable the visibility and insert a keyframe

Another way to do it is to animate the influence. If you want a sudden effect, then poor's way gives the desired result. However, if you would like to have a smoother effect, you could animate the influence factor. enter image description here

Insert an keyframe for the influence set to 1 on frame one. enter image description here

Scroll to another frame, and and insert another keyframe set to 1

enter image description here

Go the next frame and set the influence to 0, and insert a keyframe enter image description here

And then, go once again to the following frame, and set the influence to 1, and insert a keyframe.
