LayerMonkey is a versatile script for After Effects that arranges and animates your comp's layers in time and space. It also creates a parented camera and generates a master control layer that makes timing and global adjustments a piece of cake. Now stills, videos and pre-comps can be used as kinetic elements in a complex monkey-generated composition with a simple push of a button.

 Key features

  • Creates randomized complex kinetic layouts using layers in your comp based on parameters entered into the control panel.
  • Features 3 different algorithms with a Justify option.
  • Works with stills, video, pre-comps, shapes, solids, text, eps and pretty much any other type of layer AE accepts.
  • Multiple controls for handling time-based layers.
  • Variable layer order options.
  • Keyframe-less timeline makes changes to timing as simple as sliding a marker.
  • Creates a parented camera that points to each successive layer as it transitions on.
  • Distributes markers across the timeline in 3 different ways.
  • Exludes non- image based layers in comp such as nulls, cameras, audio and adjustments.
  • Manual adjustments are easily made to size, position, rotation and opacity.
  • Features a wide range of type transitions randomly selected by default, but can be specified as well.
  • Marker Sync feature allows for push button alignment with preexisting marker layers, making syncing to music a breeze.
  • Allows for different interpolation for camera movement, auto rotate and auto frame.
  • Automatically builds and cleans to facilitate easy experimentation.
  • Palette controls makes colorizing layers very easy.
  • Kuler color palettes are now easily imported.
  • Supports motion blur, lock & shy, and preset Load and Save.
  • Free: Includes MonkeyTools- an ongoing collection of utilities specifically written to enhance the functionality of the Monkey Suite. Includes: UnShy Selected Layers, UnShy Text/Image Layers, UnShy Control Layers, Reset View, Invert Locks, Unlock All, Lock All, Scene Maker, Remove Duplicate Markers (to clean up Premiere-generated marker layers, Lock Childern & Lock Parents) (You find MonkeyTools in the same place as your main Monkey download)
 
*Note to users interested in syncing text to audio as demonstrated in several tuts, the Content Analyse feature is no longer supported by Premeire Pro. We recommend using Textsyncr, a great script here on aescript.com
