    thanks steve! a bit of light 🙂

    and about the link arjen put….. (

    Im completely lost on this: “Ok, create an array of ascii characters in after effects. Now you map the
    darkest parts of the image to characters like . , : and you map
    the brightest parts of the image to characters like 3 8 #”


    maybe its easier as i can immagine, but im completely lost…..

    Creating an array of ascii characters can be done in an expression. But mapping those to the grayscale values in your image? Lost…

    Somebody out there who understands this kind of stuff?
