Create a Split-Flap Type Display
Split-Flap-What? It’s the term used for 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 project file created by Mattias Peresini who runs the totally awesome mattrunks website which has incredible tutorials for After Effects in French. We are very happy to have Mattias doing his first English tutorial for us here at Aetuts+.

Downloading .torrent files
We prefer torrents because they dramatically reduce bandwidth costs for us. You can use a client like BitTorrent (PC) or Transmission (Mac OS X). Seeding tutorials helps us save on bandwidth costs, which means a bigger budget left over for more great tuts!
Alternatively, if you don’t want to or can’t install a bitTorrent client on your machine you can download the torrent using bitlet.org (a web-based client) by clicking
