Turn a greyscale image and a custom set of glyphs into ascii-art. Very simple setup that makes use of the variant workflow in copy to points.
Sort some glyphs by density (I used the free Commodore64 style font "Pet Me 64"). Setup is expecting 16, but you can of course change that. Input video should be pretty low-res (I went 80x80 px) and I left my very basic redshift setup in there. This renders just as perfectly as a flipbook though.
