Is there anyways to do an animation of a chat log? This is for a project I am making that is due next Wednesday. I just wanted to know if it was possible to make the chat log myself or if anyone knew a way for me to generate one.

A chat log can look like anything. Are you talking about a facebook conversation?

or iPhone?

If you're creating a unique interface than you'll have to design your chatlog but if the project doesn't require rights (from apple, etc) then you can generate one. Just google 'chatlog generator'

I meant something more like an IRC or Twitch chat room. If there wasn't a generator then I wanted to know if there was a way to animate my own text that would look like it.

Animating text boxes is easy. Just parent them all to a null object and move that null.
