Dear all,
I am trying to move a fixed amount of pixels a layer after each cycle on a Time Remapping loop (loopOut("cycle"))
I am not sure if this is possible, but it seems that using type="offset" can do it. I can't find how.
Could somebody throw some light?

Best,
Diego

Do you want the layer to jump a certain distance when a loop completes or move a distance over the life of the loop?

Hello Darby, and thanks for your interest.
I would like it to move once each cycle has finished.
I were able to do it using hold keyframes in the position property and a loopOut("offset") expression but I would like the movement to be erratic, not always in the same direction. Is it even possible?
Best and thanks again,
Diego

It sounds like you'd want the position changes to be random... but in my experience, the term, "random" isn't often desirable. It's more in the eyes of the person: "Yeah, that nice and random like I'd want it to look"..... when in fact there's a pattern to it.

In which case, I would forget the loop expression, use multiple layers, and just move each layer where you want it to be. This has two virtues: it's straightforward and fast, and easily changed.

Hi Dave,
First of all, thanks a lot for your suggestions.
I already considered that option. I have 150 layers looping, I just dind't want to move them manually, that's waht I was asking for a pseudo-random movement.

Best,
Diego
