 Need to generate random numbers like in an iP address on Feb 19, 2020 at 7:12:38 am

Hi Guys,

I am literally tearing my head off ☹

I need to create an effect of a screen filled with ip addresses which keeps on changing randomly

Example - 192. 125.01.02

I have no idea on how to get the 4 punctuation.

Appreciate the help

Thank you,
Insaf Nias

I know there is a script for that but I've had to do it using multiple comps to create that sequence.

Hi Eric,

But how were you able to move the position of the numbers when the it changes from 2 digits to 3, because the position of the punctuation changes as per the number of digits.

There are scripts that work like a charm, but it generates only one punctuation (ex. 192.52)

I am so damn lost ☹ been struggling for days with this thing!

Hi Insaf. I don't know what I'm talking about but:
"There are scripts that work like a charm, but it generates only one punctuation (ex. 192.52)"
Is it possible to put two of the numbers side by side ie. 192.52, then a full stop and then add another iteration on the same line?

Hi Greg,

The issue with that method is that the position of the punctuation changes according to the number.

I used the following script; but it give me only one punctuation point, i need 3 in total (Ex - 192.168.25.01)

frames = 10; // frames to hold each random number
seed = Math.floor((time - inPoint)/framesToTime(frames));
seedRandom(seed,true);

random(300).toFixed(2)
