"digital" animation
on Feb 9, 2008 at 1:51:09 am

Hello and happy Friday! My latest question is, how can I make a row of zeros and ones that continually change but only display zeros and ones. I tried the text animator and "character offset" but it displays 0-9. I want this to look like rolling digital code. Matrix anyone?

Thanks in advance! Chris

This expression for a text layer's source text should work:

digits = 16;
freq = 10;

posterizeTime(freq);
randMin = Math.pow(2,digits);
randMax = randMin*2;
random(randMin,randMax).toString(2).substr(1)


Adjust the number of digits and the frequency as necessary.

Perfect, Thank you very much. I'd like to ask for a little explanation of how this works (I'm trying to learn, not just mooch) when you have the time. Or you could point me toward a lesson from your site if there's something there that pertains to this.

Thanks again! Chris
