VERY CROSSWORDS.

As is my want on a Saturday I popped across to say hello to the horses and on the way stopped for a copy of the Telegraph. I leave the paper minus the crossword for the horses to read.
I then thought I'd have a go animating it or one clue of it using animation nodes. What a tangle I got in but however cross my words get the more I bumble about the more familiar I get with what does what. I couldn't find a way of getting a line break in the text animation nodes so faked it in Blenders video editor. 
Here is the result of about six hours of cuckoos.


The crossword is all done now. Plenty of time to work clues out whilst stuff is rendering. Much more time than I needed as I forgot to render the bits with an Alpha channel, I restrained my language to a quiet 'Bless my soul.' Alpha allows one to stack clips and it was a hefty stack by the time I'd finished. I must remember to swap the green ribbon for a black one before typing again. No knowing what weirdos green writing might attract. I suspect vegans and other strange folk I'd rather avoid.

Have fun.
