I'm on LW 11.5 and have been an intermittent LW user for many years.

My hope is that what I'm trying to do doesn't require expressions or scripting, but I'm willing to try if that's what it takes. I've done some javascript and actionsscript, so I'm not a total noob in that area.

I have a tile array that forms a wall. I want to use an animated null (or group of nulls) to flip individual tiles as the null gets closer to them, then the tiles will flip back to their original position as the null moves away. The final animation will have words being spelled out on the wall, each letter formed by flipped tiles.

If there is some other, non-manual flipping-each-tile approach, I'd be glad to hear about it.

Many thanks!
