Alan SilvesterIllustrator Files in After Effects Animation

Hi all,

I'm working on an animation project and I need to animate the attached illustration. The idea is that the triangles expand and contract, with one triangles movement influencing the next. The overall effect will be that the whole collection of green and purple triangles will look like they're alive and constantly moving but all tied together as one.

I've made the ai file in multiple layers and imported into ae as a composition. I can see all my layers but ideally i'd like to be able to animate the anchor points used to make the original ai vectors. Is this possible?

I was also looking for a way (to save time) of ganging the triangles together so each one effects the other. I know I could parent them but this doesn't seem dynamic enough to have each anchor point/edge influence the next.

Any ideas or suggestions on how I achieve this would be ace.

Cheers chaps.
