Create a Split-Flap Type Display

Mattias Peresini of the pleasant French AE website mattrunks has done his first English tutorial for AETUTS. Create a Split-Flap Type Display helps you build "displays that are found in train stations and airports, where they typically display departure and/or arrival information and do that cool flipping of letters to display the new information. This tutorial does not show how to create the effect from scratch but instead it is a tutorial to explain how to use the example project file."

For a glimpse at future tutorials check out mattrunks; see for example Effet Coverflow 3D automatique sur After Effects (includes the project in English).

Update: see also Flipside Clock by Brandon Smith, which also creates an old school style of a flip clock using Digieffects Buena Depth Cue v2 Flipside:
