"I love the ability to have more control over the animation after running the script with the effect controls.. brilliant!" Ian Robinson
"CircusMonkey is another well-thought-out tool that promises to be really useful. I can't wait to put it into production." Brian Maffitt
"...a very efficient way to create complex title sequences and promo graphics inside After Effects" Eran Stern
"...this opens up a lot of 3D doors, not only for text, but even using this as a placeholder for other elements! " - Charles Marshall
Welcome to the Circus!
CircusMonkey is a follow up to the original TypeMonkey, our first kinetic type generator. While both generate kinetic typography, they go about it differently and the results are completely unique.
CircusMonkey's Text Rigs are at the core of a system that allows you to create a series of basic 3D shapes with your text. It has multiple animation options, an automatically generated camera that moves from one word to the next and marker-based timing controls that make adjustments a breeze.
An additional set of live, effects-based controls allows you adjust the layout, animation, camera angle and visibility of the kinetic rig after the initial build.
As with all our Monkey scripts, it's designed for a wide range of users, from beginners to experts.
-7 Flexible Text Rigs
-Kuler Palette Import
-Multiple Transition In and Out options
-Markers dynamically linked to text and camera with no keyframes
-Marker sync feature helps make automatic VO and music sync a breeze
-Timing changes as simple as sliding a marker
-New camera algorithm allows for breakthrough dynamics
-Effects controls for additional post-build adjustments
-Visibility Controls to help separate words in Z space
-Free MonkeyTools to help build and manage project
About Monkey Scripts:
The Monkey Scripts are designed with both the novice and professional in mind. They can save hours, or even days of work by helping to automate the creation of motion graphics. In a world of shrinking budgets and tight deadlines, Monkey Scripts are an indispensable part of any designers toolkit.
Whats the difference between Monkeys?
TypeMonkey also specializes in animated type. It has a unique algorithm that simulates a “2D staircase” design that is popular in kinetic typography.
LayerMonkey uses the same layout algorithm as TypeMonkey, but it works with any type of layer - video, pre-comps, graphics, whatever. However, it won't generate text like CircusMonkey or TypeMonkey. Text has to be prepared manually in Illustrator, Photoshop.
MotionMonkey is a whole other animal. It has a much more complex and versatile animation system then the others, but it doesn't create a layout, text or generate an animated camera like the others. It's ideal for layered artwork where the layout has already been designed.
MonkeyBars specializes in creating text box animations, the kind used in viral videos, info graphics, lower third supers, and subtitles. Great if you do high volume work.
