Animate text from random DNA base pair letters (ACTG) into title
on Feb 28, 2018 at 4:46:09 pm

I am trying to animate a title to create a kind of "hacker effect," where each character in the title rapidly changes from random numbers/letters, to eventually spell out the title. Instead of random letters/numbers, I'd like the characters to cycle through "A, C, T, G" (the DNA base pair letters) before landing on the title. I've been experimenting with the "Character Offset" setting, but I really don't know anything about expressions. When I change "Character Value," the random characters change, but how can I change them to only 4 letter options?

Does anyone know how I could construct this effect? Thanks!

It sounds like you are doing something very similar and the final expression posted there may work for you.
