Problem with spreads


I’m sitting here for quite a while now playing with typospread. What I’m trying to do is to rotate the quad spreading around the letter. My problem is that the rotation should only take place in 90° steps AND :) it should be interactive or at least change periodically (LFO). I thought of something like moving the mouse and then getting random rotations to change the look of the letters.

In the attached file you can see that I connected an IOBox with 8 values to the rotation-transform. You can see the result in the attached image.

I thought of something like cycling the list of values but I always ended up with just one spread as output.

I’m sure that there has to be an easier way but I can’t find it.
By the way. That is, what V4 is to me everytime. Knowing that there is an easy way but not finding it (is this an english sentence - never mind).
At last I hope you understand what my problem is and can help me out.

Thanks a lot

hi, the help patch of the SelfAlign shader is just doing that, download here.

Please do not save patches with the full screen pin set to 1

Random rotate, 0.000 or 0.250 cycles… ehh… okay… also check the RND Spread shuffle .
