  • Hey Scott - thanks so much the detailed response. 
  • Is EditMonkey able to do most or all of what the new MonkeyWords scripts does? If not, can you explain the added functionality / use cases where Monkey Words would offer an advantage? (already own Edit Monkey)  - Thank you for your great scripts!   
  • Could you clarify if there's anything you still couldn't do with this script as a Windows users regarding IconJar that you could with a Mac?  Thanks. 
  • In the Shapes tab, I used a Stroke with no Fill and put a checkmark in the Crop Image box.When I add lines, those go to the center of each circle, which looks a little odd.Is there a way to have the lines cropped at the edge of the circle instead of…
  • Is there a direct way to put animated precomps or .mp4 files into these nodes - or is it simplest just to create a mask and shift + parent to an existing node? (I couldn't get the crop feature under Shapes tab to work for animated files).  Thanks.
  • Is there a way to embed video in any of the pages used in the flip book or are you limited to pngs or other still formats? 
  • Any suggestions on how to use 3D Flip Book to create a 3D newspaper? Would that be achievable with effects like Page Turn, CC Bender, CC Bend It, Turbulent Displace? Thanks for any help.
  • [EDIT> Solution:   realized I just needed to edit the json file, where I can do a Find/Replace All to update each year, replacing After Effects 2020 with After Effects 2021 for instance - leaving this posted in case it could help someone else - t…
  • Any progress on making some tutorials for this? Looks like it could be a very interesting plugin but some more guidance (beyond the manual) would be helpful.
  • Hey Steven - Thanks for quick reply. I just opened a support ticket and attached a few screenshots including expression error.
  • Hi. Just purchased this to use on a current project. I have several layers in a row (text and shape layers). They do not have expressions or effects on them. When I click on Make Group, I get 1 error per layer created (2 if I only test with two laye…
  • Can you use the Liquid deformer to pour water out of a container by tilting past 90 degrees? (or do you have to simulate that with additional effects?)
  • @Alon - thanks for the quick replies to both questions. Glad to hear you'll be adding a solution for guides and are actively developing what looks like it could be an immensely useful script!   Regarding the second case request, I'll do some further…
  • I have another use case request: Let's say I have a hundred lines of text that have a repeating pattern every four lines where I would like the following: Line 1: Anchor point for the text to the top left, Alignment for that paragraph to the Left, P…
  • I created guides and exported them.I can now go into an arbitrary comp, go to the VIEW menu at the top of the program and click Import Guides to recreate those guides in that comp, after which I lock them. Is there a way to automate that process wit…
  • Thanks for the explanation and included files. Worked great. I purchased the script and look forward to discovering further ways to harness its power. Would echo sentiment from previous poster that I'd love to see additional use case scenarios and d…
  • Can this be used to change the font of all (or some) text layers throughout a project? (I see text source listed as a property that can be modified but no specific mention of text font).  Thanks.
  • How does this compare to FoxReveal in terms of functionality?
  • Any chance of a more comprehensive tutorial? The script looks useful and produces interesting results, but even after reading the manual, it would be nice to have an explainer video that shows us how to set parameters to work toward specific types o…
  • Hi - I've seen a few people ask about attaching / tracking a png to line up with the letters being written on. Any update on whether that will be incorporated into the next version? And will V2 be a paid upgrade or will we automatically receive that…
  • I was trying to figure out if this actually does any advanced morphing of one shape into another or not. The included videos do things at high speed so can't particularly tell. Would like to see this done at slow speed so can see the actual morphing…
  • That's great to hear. Appreciate the quick reply. Just bought it and will test things out.
  • Got it. Thanks.Any update on whether or not this will be made compatible with Font Manager? And if so, do you have any rough timetable for that?
  • Does this work well in conjunction with DUIK or other character animation rigs? Would it work to simply take a 2d character / png image; add puppet pins to hands, feet, hip, head etc and parent those to respective controllers from bvh import? (I jus…
  • Could you explain the difference between Write-On and Scribe? Are they very similar but just have different fonts?

  • I'm also trying to use Boa in AE 2020 and not having any luck getting any texture to show up whether built in AE or imported. I'm creating a comp, adding a solid, drawing an open mask on that, then adding Boa and choosing a texture (also in that com…
  • 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 ar…
  • Would this be helpful when used in conjunction with a character animation tool such as DUIK? If so, could you walk through the workflow as that could make this an even more useful script.
  • Hi - I have this same problem with AE CC 2020.  If I select a button for a script or extension I added, click on the pencil icon to the right, and then choose 'Delete' and 'OK' -I see a little animation play across the OK button, but the informa…
