    I want to do a random text changing effect, like the one explained here: and here:

    Except, what I want to do is:

    I’ll have the text already on the screen, in a japanese characters font. Then do the random change with added motion blur for effect, and when it stops changing, I need it to change fonts so that it displays Latin characters.

    Is there a way?

    unfortunately once you start trying to customize the randomness, it doesnt work well. you can fake it using your one japanese character and your one latin character..this being per letter of your message
