Character offset binary code effect
on Oct 26, 2015 at 9:23:55 am

Hi! So Im trying to make a binary code "decoder" effect using the character offset animation. I would like to only use 1's and 0's but the character offset only lets me use random numbers or the full binary set of character.

Any ideas on how to set the character offset animation to only use 1's and 0's??

I'm not sure what effect you're looking for exactly, but have you tried setting your text to all 0's and using a character offset of 1?

Don't need an expression for this, you can do by just using a couple of animators.

Create a text layer consisting of just "0"'s, however many you want for the length of your binary string. Add an offset animator and set it to 1. Now select the "Animator 1" and add a wiggly selector and change the "Min Amount" to 0%. All that's left is deciding how many wiggles per second you want. And if you have a bunch of layers you may want to add an expression to the Random Seed like "index * 10"

Here's a quick example project:
