This is basically the noodle enabler (slightly tweaked) the experiment was more about using custom
stroke-dasharray as the built in one is limited to one digit. This parameter is an array as the name indicates… so you can actually separate the spaces in the dash to match the spaces in between letters given only one line is writing it (look at Head HTML). The metal look could be much improved but that was actually not the goal (but could be an interesting standalone filter if tweaked to a decent state).
There is a slight “snapping” when the line progress hits 100%. Hype does something some reset at the end of the animation even though it’s easeOut … guess that’s still a bug in Hype 4 Beta.
