Light Converse Basic Tutorial Part 2

LightConverseHere’s my second video tutorial for Light Converse.  This time I walk through configuring the fixtures in Light Converse to talk to a lighting console.  Once you have this step done you’re ready to start programming cues in your lighting console!

TypeMonkey After Effects Script

typemonkeyartA big part of motion graphics for worship is animated type.  Whether it’s lyrics to a song or a powerful Bible verse, at some point you’ll want to create moving text.  While there are some great presets built into After Effects I just found out about a script add-on that takes it to the next level.

TypeMonkey is a script for After Effects that takes the tedious process of animating a lot of text and makes it easy and quick!  It offers a lot of cool features and has a lot of options making it pretty versatile.  Now it’s not a cure all, but it looks like it’s something that will work well in a lot of cases.

Head on over to and check out TypeMonkey.  It’s on sale until the end of the month!
