I'm about to attempt something that imagine there are simple
ways of handling. I want to fill a silhouette of a person with
text. Just random (or predetermined if that's easier) letters
falling and piling up inside of the silhouette until they reach the
top. As I envision it the final result will look like the letters
pile up to form a person. Therefore if the letters are blue the
person's silhouette will be blue and so on.
I can go through, idividually inputting and animating all the
letters but that would be highly time consuming and, I'm guessing,
not the best way to go about things. So I was wondering if anyone
else had any ideas, possibly involving actionscript to generate the
letters and control their motion? I'm guessing that if I can handle
that via action script then the only actual tinkering involved will
just be in masking off the area the text falls into.
So thanks in advance to anyone who can help. Is there anyone?
