Hi!

i've got a line which should be moving around with the help of the turbulent displace effect. It works fine, but i like to have the endpoints of the line fixed, so they stay on the same position while the line between the points moves around. Do you know a way to do this?
Thanks a lot!

You may have to replace the Turbulent Displace with the other AE displacement effect, using a pre comp as the source of displacement. In the pre comp you could use Fractal Noise on a solid, with a masked neutral gray solid on the layer above. This would leave the ends of your line reacting to neutral gray, meaning no displacement at all.
