The Text Mosaic is an AS3 -based, XML -customizable animation that allows you to arrange and animate basic vector graphics shapes to form text messages.
You can use a predefined set of vector graphic shapes or create your own ones to enrich the animation.
A XML file allows you to easily customize the animation without having to modify the AS3 code. Parameters accessible with the XML file are :
Global parameters: - Size of the animation.
Text Message parameters : - Text string (text message to be displayed), - Text font, - Text size, - Text message display time, - Transition time between 2 text messages, - Position of the text message, - Background color, - Background alpha, - Number of vector graphic shapes, - Min & Max size of the vector graphic shapes, - List of vector graphic shapes to be used, - Animation loop enable or disable.
Several text messages can be displayed sequentially simply by cascading several <Text>....</Text> fields in the XML file.
The set of predefined shapes provided with the package can be seen in the preview animation above.
The animation is embedded in a Movie clip for an easy Drag ‘n Drop use.
