Rather than "fun" type-effects, I'm looking to create more computer-display like effects using the TrueType node. Also would be nice to have clock tool to automate countdowns or to display SMPTE, etc. Totally understand if this is beyond the scope of the module, but the first feature is at the top of my want-list, and would be very nice to have (and seemingly not too difficult to code?).
. when you get your Structure - go to the TXT node, press the List softkey (bottom right of the screen) - if you're not in the TXT:PGM (shown at top of screen) menu, press the Files soft key and choose PGM, then select 'bwTypeCursIn' or 'bwTypeIn'. (btw- this is where you can change the font and the text file you're reading). After you close that menu, press the PARAMS and scroll down to the TXT Node settings and adjust how you want things to be typed. Refer to https://erogenous-tones.com/docs/struct ... /node-txt/ for more information.
. i think something like a fake SMTPE or countdown could be done fairly easily in the 2D node.
