Custom Animated Text Display

jersmi's picture

Okay, if I was ever looking for suggestions, here it is. Totally willing to start over with this. What I would really like is to be able to type on screen (or set up strings to animate in order) and have something like the letters in this example comp type on screen. Essentially like a message board / custom font with each letter made of an animated grid of sprites (or cubes).

Doesn't seem particularly original. Has anyone tried anything like it?

Forgot the comp. Also wondering about creating chasing light patterns across / within multiple letters (words and phrases, i guess). Once again, probably have to start over a few times.

Still some details to work out (line break, for ex.), but here's what I came up with. So far letters and numerals only.
