Hi there! Is there a script or a way to do a wiggle expression on some points of a path in a shape?
Lets say there is 30 points, and i want 5 of those to wiggle.
Thanks!

Nope.

I usually go with a puppet-pin solution.

If it is a non-filled shape with straight lines, you can use nulls and a bunch of beam effects to draw the lines.

Thanks! I actually tried with puppet tool linked to nulls, but as 3D layer and camera the shape layer got broken. Pre-comp solved this issue. Didnt think of that. Thanks for your answer Kalle.

I know you've already solved the issue, but there is a third-party solution:
