Scrolling Horizontal text emulating a red light box
on Apr 10, 2010 at 1:37:14 pm

I'm trying to create one of those red text displays that use a maybe 10 high by 50 wide matrix of red light.

I tried to mask red text with circles but that wasn't real as each circle needs to come on as a whole, not scoll on.

My skills are limited in this area so there might be a way that I can't imagine.



Thanks
Cliff

What about using a font where the letters are composed of dots?

Free ones available here:

Thanks all, I figured it out on my own while sleeping.

thought I just needed to use a font made of dots, so I started looking for a way to create one. Then I found tons of them on the internet....

So, I can make if work that way, thanks again!!!
