    Hi guys !!!
    1st things first. Its just insane !

    But... i  found a small issue with EM load/save preset function.

    If even one of the parameters is left to random (eg. random intensity / layer order etc) once loaded back into the same comp with same layers (clone of the comp )  the randomisation varies.

    Can the XML hold that random value from which the movement is recreated .
    This would be ultra if it is fixable otherwise users will have to stick to NON random so saving has a purpose.

    Hey Orrin

    It doesn't seem to let me comment on your Editmonkey product page so I'll just message you here.

    I downloaded the trial version of editmonkey because it seemed really interesting and the layer transition features will save me a ton of time with transitioning in objects.

    I tried to use the feature on one ai file that I have but it didn't work because of something about triangles being too "small and thin" ??? and the second time I used tried to use it it said I couldn't animate them because the trial version is limited to only 10 layers. I was about to try the extension out a third time with a different ai file but my ae crashed before I could do so (first time it did in 2 months. I hope it didn't have to do with the extension)

    I think your extension is really interesting and I'd love to try it out but everything seems to be turning for the worse. I'd love to buy the script so I can avoid the 10 layer limitation and truly test it out. If it doesn't work out, can we return the extension?

      Hey Kafka- absolutely.. if you’re not happy, neither are we, and if we can’t fix the problem we’ll refund your money right away.

      Also- Would you be able to send me your ai file...we haven’t seen that errror before and would like to check it out. Open a support ticket - it’s the easiest way.

      Thx- oz

      Hey

      That's great!

      I don't know if I can open a support ticket yet since I didn't buy the extension so I'll just like the ai file here.

      I tried to test it with this file from freepik

    when I play the rendered movie in QT it works fine. So maybe it is a premiere issue?

    Did Wind stop working with CC 2018?

    Hi. It won't let me leave a comment on the WIND page. it keeps saying to log in.

    I'm using the latest AE and Premiere. Wind looks fine in AE. When I render the movie and place the movie or the Dynamic linked comp into Premiere the wind effect does not take. Any advice please? I have the wind effect in a pre comp and my final comp has an iris wipe effect.

    Hi Orrin,

    I love the Monkey-Cam plugin.
    But it seems that the plugin does not seem to work with pre-comps?
    The moment I use it on a pre-comp nothing happens like it's not affecting the pre-comps at all?

    Can it be to the fact that I'm using Ae CC-2017?

      You can skip my comment Orrin, it was a due to ignorance ;-)

    Hi,

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    I really liked your answer to my first question, so I’ll definitely go with CircusMonkey, and possibly LayerMonkey as well.  Thanks.

    With regard to my second question about the “Missing:” effects in the effects panel, I tried to figure it out myself, but could not.

    When I open a project that uses CircusMonkey, I now get the following dialog box:

    ===

    This project contains 3 references to missing effects. Please install the following effects to restore these references. (“Rig Controls”,“Text Controls”,“Camera Controls”)

    ===

    Best I can tell, finding effects is not like the simple process of finding "lost" footage in the Project Panel.  So any help you can provide would be appreciated.   I ran Paul T’s “Find Effect” script and confirmed that these effects are missing.  And when I search for “Controls” in the Effects and Presets Tab search box, all three CircusMonkey effects show up under the newly generated category of “Missing”.  (I didn’t do a circle animation yet, but I’m guessing I’d have four missing effects if I did that.)

    I looked through my Ae Preferences file for these effects, and then I copied and renamed various files to three different locations: the non-dockable scripts folder, the dockable scripts folder, and the effects folder (inside the presets folder on my PC). 

    The dockable script shows up under the window menu as it should.  And Ae finds the effects but places them in the “Missing” folder for some reason.  Placing the files in the undockable scripts folder also didn’t fix the problem even though the CircusMonkey script shows up in the scripts selection under the File menu as it should.

    I don’t pretend to know how Ae loads, so I took a brute force approach and tried all of the file names below (i.e., filenames with and without “CM_”, with and without “PseudoDEOZ_”, etc) in all of the folder locations mentioned above. 

    CircusMonkey.jsxbin

    PseudoDEOZ CM_Camera_Controls.ffx

    PseudoDEOZ CM_Circle_Controls.ffx

    PseudoDEOZ CM_Rig_Controls.ffx

    PseudoDEOZ CM_Text_Controls.ffx

    PseudoDEOZ_CM_Camera_Controls.ffx

    PseudoDEOZ_CM_Circle_Controls.ffx

    PseudoDEOZ_CM_Rig_Controls.ffx

    PseudoDEOZ_CM_Text_Controls.ffx

    CM_Camera_Controls.ffx

    CM_Circle_Controls.ffx

    CM_Rig_Controls.ffx

    CM_Text_Controls.ffx

    Camera_Controls.ffx

    Circle_Controls.ffx

    Rig_Controls.ffx

    Text_Controls.ffx

    None of this worked.  I still get the missing effects dialog box when I open a project, and the CircusMonkey effects are still marked/categorized as “Missing” in both the Effects Panel and in the Effect and Presets tab.  As for a possible CC fix, I hear you, but as you know, Premiere and Encore CS6 still have the Analyze Content functionality that comes in very handy when syncing… ;).

    I know you’re busy, but if you can take a little time to try to figure this out for me, I’d really appreciate it.  Any chance this issue could be related to the fact that I only have the Trial Version?  I still did not purchase it, since I’m waiting for the sale next week, but can you check if a paid version of CircusMonkey has this issue while running on CS6?

    Thanks again,

    JJ

      Sorry- just saw this.
      There is an Arabic Text Modifier for TypeMonkey - check it out:
      http://aescripts.com/typemonkey-arabic-text-modifier/

      It's put out by a 3rd party, but I hear it works well.
