This After Effects script allows you to transform the content of the selected text layers into ASCII art. Credits must go to Patrick Gillepsie who wrote the hard part with his implementation of the FIGfont spec in JavaScript.

You may want to take a look at all fonts provided by the script: ASCII Fonts Grid


Select at least one text layer
Choose an ASCII font
Click on Generate

Compatibility: CS5, CS6, and CC (and perhaps with older versions but not tested).

  1. All I’m getting is lines with random stuff not resembling anything. I’m using CS6 on a high powered computer and I’ve been experimenting with this for almost an hour but I don’t get any results like in the video.

  2. I’ve just tried this on my mac and pc, both running CS6. It works beautifully on my mac, and doesn’t work the least bit on my PC.

  3. Can you make a tutorial on how did you animate the text like in the old video games? Anyways cheers for the great script! 😉 Thanks.
