Color spread with 800 values?

hallo everyone,
i rendered a text along a bezier curve using the split node so i get about 800 different characters. i’d like to have the pen color of my text ranging form white to a drak grey ( a gradient) evenly across my text. Is there a node to get a gradient for my whole text or how can i achieve that? to manually do a color spread with 800 different values seems almost impossible.
any suggestions?
thanks martin

use the “blend (color)” node and feed its “blend” inlet with a “linearspread (spreads)” node. set “spreadcount” to 800.

have a look at the “Resample (Color)” modules at my userpage:
