  • Add random value at random intervals (ranges)

    I’m trying to create a more staggered transition to a value from 0 to 100. I guess sort of like a progress bar that progresses at random speeds.

    More context:

    I’m using the typewriter effect to reveal some text but I want the typing to be more natural. I found an expression that is applied to Source Text, but I’m using SourceRectAtTime() and need the complete texts dimensions so I need to use the typewriter effect.

    The solution(?)

    I need an expression that adds a random amount to the value at random intervals – ideally adjustable ranges of course.

    If the expression applied to the Source Text works, you can use sourceRectAtTime(outPoint,false). Or whatever value you want, in seconds. Something like sourceRectAtTime(10,false) gives the size of the rectangle at second 10. So you can take the value from after the whole text is written.
