In this free video tutorial on After Effects, we will deepen our understanding of the wiggle expression, with some advanced functions, to better control it.

We will see how to generate a fixed wiggle, which doesn't change even if we add other layers in the composition. This will allow you to have a constant animation throughout the project's progress, and to apply this same movement to other layers easily.

We will finally learn new arguments of the wiggle function, for controlled variations in relation to a random motion base.

  • Reminders about the wiggle expression and its two main arguments Frequency and Amplitude
  • Discovery of an expression to get a fixed random calculation
  • Discovery of three other arguments: Octaves, amplitude and time multiplier
  • Create variations from a basic movement
