Hi all,

Need help! I was wondering, does anyone know what technique is used to create this animation?

I need dots to form a graphic, thanks in advance for your guidance!

If you have the Particular effect it's very easy. If you don't, it's not too much harder with Card Dance.

Doing a search for 'card dance halftone' or 'particular halftone' should find you some tutorials.

Cheers! I used RetroDots and also on another version, Particle World from a file on Slightly different results, but sort of works. Still difficult to get close to the NYT example though.
