Re: Creating an Automated Odometer: Part 1
by Kelly Rivera
I used your 3pt tutorial for creating an odometer in AE to create a slot machine effect for text. I happen to have a 4 word text so it worked perfectly. I didn't follow your tutorial to a T because I didn't need the same speed as the odometer, I wanted all of them to go different speeds but all some what fast and then created them to stop on a certain word. I have a 9 letter word now and it isn't working quite the same when I set the cc cylinder effect, it is only showing 3 rows of my nine. Any suggestions on how to create 9 rows and allowing 26 letters plus a blank space? I want to have it spin then a few sec stop on a word spin again then stop on a different word.
