Whats the difference between the Monkeys?

TypeMonkey specializes in animated type. It has a unique algorithm that simulates a classic “kinetic typography” design that is popular in a wide variety of projects, from lyric videos to corporate presentations. Our first and most popular primate.

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 using the layout from the original imported artwork. It’s ideal for layered artwork that you want to quickly animate in complex ways.

ShapeMonkey is a procedural shape layer animator.  Designed for easy experimentation and quick iterations.

CircusMonkey creates and animates type. It specializes in 3D text layouts using 7 different algorithms that can be adjusted via effects controls after the build.

MonkeyCam Pro Is a more powerful version of the camera thats included in most of the others Monkeys. Its a standalone product but can also be used in conjuntion with any of the other monkeys.

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.
