Wiggle an open path but anchor the end-points?

Hello. I have a two-point path. I would like to wiggle the path, but keep the path's end-points anchored in place. I have searched and experimented and failed.

I wonder if this is possible?

Thank you.

You will need more than 2 points for the behaviur you are trying to achieve .. the corner 2 points will be static and the remaining points in the middle will wiggle ..

Have a look at this script:

It helps you to attach mask points to any 2 dimensional property .. so you can link the points in the middle to any animated property and leave the corner points static.

Thank you very much. And thanks for including a sample file. I'll give it a try.
