  • Hi - I am using Textsyncr & Typemonkey to add text to a vo.  I am not creating a camera, but am using the Text. Box Commands to create the lines & customizing the layout & the OPACITY.  I got half way done & rewatched my work only to find all the text layer visible at once, even after I deleted my keyfames on the Text Layers opacity.  The opacity value, I noticed was RED on some but standard blue color on others....what is going on & how do I avoid having to redo work like this in the future?  
    Thanks so much!

    Hey Joshua- Best to open a support ticket...and send me the project so I can see what you're looking at (no assets needed). Thx!

    It might help for the future iterations.  I'll do that for sure Orrin!  For now, my work around is to position a phrase in the layout I want, then duplicate the Master Control layer & then pre-compose the duplicate control+parent+children of that phrase so I can lower the opacity of the pre-comp.  That way I don't mess up the typemonkey expressions added to the opacity of the text layers...clear as mud....great.  haha!

    Excellent - the monkeys are a strange mix of easy and powerful, but sometimes they don't give you exactly what you need...so you have to figure out how to workaround. Sounds like a good life lesson. :-)

    Life lesson indeed.  A thought:  perhaps there could be Text Box Keyboard Commands for each animation style.  That way I can group words together [ ] & then within that group add a custom animation to a specific word...?...or could the animation of a specific word be updatable kinda like the camera setting are...?  

    LOVE the product!  Gonna save me so much time!
  • Hey Josh- sadly theres only a few key that work as commands we're limited to - we used most (maybe all?) that are available. We'd love to make a force rotate too...we've head a few suggestions.

    You know you could always disable specific moves (use monkeytools to unshy text) and go from there...let me know if you need help.

    ...and thanks for the kind words!
  • Maybe this question has been asked before.. In the video you are using premiere to generate the markers but on research, the only version of premiere that can do this was cs6.. Could you please add another video that shows how to add markers automatically using any other version a adobe or any other tool.

    Hey Sat- check https://aescripts.com/textsyncr/ - theres a tut there. Its the closest thing to the old Content Analyzer. Hope that helps!
  • I'm having a lot of fun experimenting with Type Monkey and getting some great results. 

    Was wondering if there's a way to force Type Monkey to respect a mask - either forcing the words to appear within that mask or excluding words from the masked area. If that's not currently doable but it is possible through scripting, would like to enter that as a feature request.  

    One possibility in my case would be to have dour comps within a main comp, one positioned on the left, one on right, another for top, and another for the bottom - but doing it that way would add a lot of complexity.

    At any rate, wonderful script and appreciate any suggestions you might have.
  • Hard to say...I might have an option for you- please open a support ticket and send me some sort of visual or build of what you're looking to achieve.

    Thanks!
  • In the open frame of the Typemonkey + Layermonkey tutorial you sync the text with your audio read in a paragraph format, where lines with shorter word counts are scaled to equal lines with longer word counts. I'm trying to figure out how this was achieved, and I dare say I'm overlooking something very basic. Is that setup using Typemonkey and Layermonkey or just Layermonkey?

    Thanks for your time.

    Hey Kevin- Thats the Justified Layout in LayerMonkey- it doesnt exist in TypeMonkey...but you can set the text in TypeMonkey (Text Only function) and then lay it out and animated it in LayerMonkey.

    Hope that helps...

  • Seems like I'm still not getting it. 

    As a test I'm using 3 lines of text. In Typemonkey I paste in the 3 lines then select text layers only and all caps. So that gives me each word of the 3 lines on it's own layer each stacked on top of another in the comp window. Do you then have to move each word individually to remake the line of text before going into Layermonkey? I must be missing something. I also tried the keyboard commands but the result was individual lines of text where the line would animate and not the words.
