I created some .mov files in Photoshop, at 12 fps, using a basic rotoscoping technique. I like the wiggly effect, but to save time, I only animated 1 second of each asset and I am planning on looping these in After Effects with the loopOut expression.
To make it look less like it is repeating every second, I am trying to figure out an easy way to randomly generate the time on each frame.
For example: new frame 1 = original frame 3, new frame 2 = original frame 9, new frame 3 = original 1 ...and so on.
I would use random() but I want to avoid having the same frame twice in a row because it makes it look choppy.
