MonkeyBars, a New Text Animation Workhorse for Ae

MonkeyBars is another new genetic type tool for After Effects from the Ebberts + Zucker duo. Monkey Tools always offer a fast, flexible and easy way get procedural animation going with kinetic type and camera moves. A recent addition to the “Monkey” brand continues with that trend.

MonkeyBars is a new text animation workhorse for motion designers, editors and producers that lets you create animated text boxes procedurally. The Ae tool can easily create multi-line animations that are based on the contents of the text entry box.

Simply choose text size and color, designate a box and let the monkey do the rest. MonkeyBars is ideal for high volume text animations, lower thirds, or anywhere you need subtitles or bullet points.
