I am trying to achieve a similar effect on the menu elements on this site: http://www.kikk.be/2016/


As you can see, the text scrambles, and goes back,


This is my code here:

$('h1').each(function() {
	var _this = $(this),
			mySplitText = new SplitText(_this, {
			  type: "chars"
			newchars = '*?�><[]&@#)(.%$-_:/\\;?!azertyuopqsdghjklmwxcvbn'.split(''),
			randomchars = shuffleArray(newchars),
			letters = shuffleArray(mySplitText.chars),
			tl = new TimelineMax({ paused: true });

	$(letters).each(function(index, element){
	  	.to(letters[index], 0.02, {scrambleText: randomchars[Math.floor(Math.random() * newchars.length)]}, index*0.02);
	_this.hover(function() {
	},function() {
function shuffleArray(array) {
    for (var i = array.length - 1; i > 0; i--) {
        var j = Math.floor(Math.random() * (i + 1));
        var temp = array[i];
        array[i] = array[j];
        array[j] = temp;
    return array;

I am getting close, but it's taking some time :) Any help is appreciated.

Hello anteksiler


Have you looked into using the GSAP ScrambleTextPlugin? GSAP already did the heavy lifting for you!

I am actually using the ScrambleText, but it does not give me the option to randomize the order, that's why I had to use SplitText to randomize the letters.

Are you trying to make it be random on every hover?

Yes, that would be ideal, and would like to only scramble random number of letters, not all of them.
