i'm trying to create a digital rain effect using carddance in AE. i'm only using ONE's and ZERO's (1110001110001101...) carddance needs to have a specific number of rows and collums to match the CUT grid - soit doesn't cut through the numbers you typed. I found a sort of tutorial by ayato on his website (http://www.ayatoweb.com/ae_tips_e/ae49_e.html) where he explains how to make collums and rows using illustrator. but i just can't do it the way he tells it. the project seems to be to big to render or i just can't type anything in the little box.
so what is the best way to create a number of rows and collums in illustrator to use it with the carddance effect of AE ? or any other way to create a file with rows and collums to use in carddance??
thanks nills .. . .
(and does anyone have another digital rain tutorial he knows of?)
