Hi. I added a simple wiggle expression to a camera's position in AE CS4: wiggle(2,2) My question is what do or how do I add to the expression so that the wiggle only last for 3 seconds? I'm sure this is simple... Thanks in advance for your help.

Alternatively add an expression control slider, and pick-whip from the wiggle amount to the slider. Then you can keyframe the amount of wiggle.

This will also allow you to fade up/down the wiggle amount rather than turning it on and off if that's any use to you. Use hold keyframes to avoid this.
