Wim BruyninckxColor Carrousel for a generic textfield.

Hi Everyone,

I am curious if there's a way to achieve this with scripting. Let's say I have a set of 5 colors.(Color A,B,...,E) And I have a textfield with some characters.
Eg. Textfield with characters : "JHONNY"

Every character gets color from the set.
Eg. "J" will be in color A,
"H" will be in color B,
"O" will be in color C
... and so on

Now i want that on a time-interval, the colors propagate to the next character:
"J" will be in color B
"H" will be in color C
"O" will be in color D

I am relatively experienced with ae-scripting, but can't find a proper solution for this one. Certainly because I want this for generic text. (I want to reuse it for longer or shorter strings too) Does anyone have some bright ideas, to help me on my way?

Kind Regards.
