I need to make my background layer more interesting. It's a pattern of different images and I want to make each image change at random intervals.

I seem to remember there was a plugin for this but I can't recall it's name... Or if anyone has any suggestions otherwise?

There's nothing random in AE, not even random generators, they all have seeds so they can be repeated.

If we knew how many images you needed and how you were getting your images into AE we might be able to offer more direct suggestions. Last time I had to do something similar I had ten objects on the screen fed by ten folders of photographs, sequentially numbered, brought in as image sequences and timeremapped to play at different speeds. Looked darned random.

There are expressions that can select layers form a precomp based on a wiggle or random expression.

Bogie, your first solution sounds pretty rad! My images are all in the same folder so that would work. Care to share how you did it??

Dude, he DID tell you. I recommend re-reading the post very carefully. I'm not in the mood to paraphrase.

Maybe try the ImageFlow plugin from CoreMelt.
